    I am with you.... then I remember what happened when Dusty saw Chapman in the bullpen once.

    Are you hearing this from some in the system?

    I got a kick out of the above. It's been this year, but someone was bemoaning that Walt needs the best 25 men in the system up in Cincinnati. (You know that argument) At which point I said, well then he should drop Logan and call up Stephenson (according to his logic)

    I honestly had not thought of that. You just changed my opinion on the matter. It's really bad that we have to consider such things.

    That is why the Reds should have drafted Wacha instead of Travieso. Last winter, the Reds should have restocked the farm system by acquiring 2 or 3 elite prospects for Chapman, then this winter you can trade Homer for 2 or 3 big time prospects. Between the 2 trades you'd have a SS and 3B prospects waiting in the wings. Then our rotation in 2014 would be:

    Cueto
    Latos
    Cingrani
    Leake
    Wacha

    Stephenson
    Corcino
    Rogers In AAA Louisville

    Plus, we'd have a completely restocked and reloaded farm system resulting in trading Chapman and Bailey, not to mention we will prob have 2 additional draft picks from Arroyo and Choo. That is how a small market team needs to operate, this team need to work like the Rays

    I will pick up my GM of the Year Award now.


    There are actually a number of interesting FA starters on the market this offseason who could be potential bargains either due to lousy 2013 performance (Roy Halladay, Josh Johnson, Dan Haren), age (Chris Carpenter, AJ Burnett) , or injury (Johan Santana, Colby Lewis). Still, I would expect the Reds to essentially stand pat with their starters.
    "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."

    You resign Arroyo to a 2 or 3 year deal, it's not rocket science. A Reds deal in the same ballpark as any other offer means he'll come back. A lot of this has to do with the 10/5 rule in Baseball and also it gives him the chance to go out a Red something he has spoken about before.

    We traded him in a package for Mike Trout. The next day we began printing World Series tickets.

    I love posts that suggest the Reds should/could have traded Chapman and Homer for a package of un-named prospects from an un-named team.

    We wouldn't have had to trade Homer and Chapman if we had just drafted Wacha instead of Travieso!

    Wait...is this taking into account that Lincecum was drafted instead of Stubbs too?

    At this point in their careers.....Stephenson is pretty clearly outperforming Homer at the same stage. Very impressive.
