    It won't last; brothers and sisters are natural enemies. Like Englishmen and Scots! Or Welshmen and Scots! Or Japanese and Scots! Or Scots and other Scots! Damn Scots! They ruined Scotland!

"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."

    Nationalities, maybe, citizens of those countries? Ehhh...probably is approaching accurate.

    Considering he's a free agent after next season, the inter division thing might not be that big of a deal. The Brewers aren't likely to be competitive in 2014 either.

    They'll want pitching, I think.

    Right. Because all Americans have the same attitudes about other countries, so it must be the same elsewhere.

    That's not at all what I'm saying. There's a ton of history between all those countries, and they all basically have a longstanding culture of both pride and to a degree isolationism.

    To deny that is just silly.

    Understood and acknowledged. Still don't like blanket comments like "Japanese hate Koreans" any more than I like comments like "Americans hate Germans."

    I would say that it's prevalent there more than applying to everyone universally

    Just like there's a prevalence of "murrica" in the US.

    We're bordering on the beginnings if a political discussion. And that's fine, but not in this forum.

    Bring it back to baseball, please.

    Yeah, I can agree with the idea that those sentiments are common. Truce -- back to baseball.

    Milwaukee wants young, near ready players. Who do the Reds have that they'd want that we could afford to deal? Not dealing Cingrani or Hamilton. Maybe they'd like Lutz or Soto with Corcino as a part of the deal. They might like Hoover and/or Partch. With Aoki signed for 2014 for chump change, it's going to take some talent to get him. Ryan Lamarre and Logan Ondrusek won't get it done.

    I'd propose Soto, H-Rod, Hoover and Corcino for Aoki and K-Rod. They'd probably want more than that.

    LOL, four guys sounds good but I think they would want Cingrani.

    Cingrani and Soto, or Heisey, might get it done. Might substitute a Hoover for Heisey.

    Frankly, it might be worth it for the Reds. I'm sure everyone around here will say "nooooooo" but Cingrani is a fly ball pitcher and may not be the best fit for the Reds. Some folks note his dependancy on fastballs too.

    I'm not advocating this, but I think the Brewers would want him and I see very little else that Reds could reasonably offer. Reds are not offering Hamilton or Stephenson for him. Brewers might want a Frazier, Cozart, or Mesoraco for him but I don't see that happening either.

    Whole thing is very unlikely, he probably stays or goes to a different league/division.
