    Yep. Guys like Yorman's greatest value is as a trading chip to get a proven talent. Yorman may make it big, but it really doesn't matter to the Reds. If the Reds traded prospects like Yorman ten times, they will get ten proven MLB players, and odds are only one of the prospects would make it big. It's a calculated risk.

    Source: #SFGiants will not move J. Lopez unless overwhelmed in final 15 minutes. High asking price.

    The suspense is killing me, I hope it lasts.

    A big meh to acquiring pitching. Offense is this team's problem.

    I really hope there's a PTBNL in the Norris for Hoes trade named Boats.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    To this point, the second-best bat traded all summer has been Justin Maxwell. Says something about how bad the market for hitters has been.

    Hitters are tough to find. Reds only have three.

    Navarro not going to Cards, according to tweet I saw, wouldn't give up value.

    Byrd is in Mets lineup tonight, hitting cleanup no less.

    Interesting. Either they've made a trade or they certainly recognize the anxiety for wanting to get something done.
