    Browns trade Trent Richardson

    In last year's draft, the Cleveland Browns traded four picks to move up ONE spot for Trent Richardson. Today, they trade him to the Colts for a first round pick that's likely to be in the twenties.

    I just.... I don't even know. Thank the good Lord I'm a Bengals fan (growing up, I never thought I'd be able to utter those words).

    This sort of thing can happen when new ownership/management takes over, although it usually happens during the offseason. They get an extra #1, they get even worse in the meantime... definitely indicates they're not going to let Jacksonville have the first overall pick without a fight, if that's what you'd call it.

    I don't think it will be a competition. Jacksonville might rival the Houston Astros for best minor league team in all of professional sports. I'd say the Browns will have their choice of Touchdown Teddy or Clowney, whoever Jacksonville passes on.

    Browns are stockpiling picks, they must be in love with the 2014 draft. Have fun selling that to season ticket holders.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    "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."

    I don't really see it as a bad deal, I don't think Richardson is an all world back waiting to happen.

    The cost of acquiring TRich is moot now.

    I think they got fair market value for him. Perhaps more (many people think its foolish to use a first rounder on a RB unless he is AP). For whatever reason, he has not impressed so far. Gonna have to let this play out.

    I'd rather pick up a 1st round OL talent and use a later round on a back, even if AP is available. Winning teams build from the line out.

    And the Bengals look very solid on the line on both sides of the ball.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    Cleveland just traded TR because they're dreaming of Ben Tate. Yep, Ben Tate.

    As a Colts fan I can't say I'm super impressed by this move. Again, unless he's AP I'm not sure a back is going to be the difference in being a good team and a championship team.

    This was my initial thought too. However, the more I think about it, the more I am at least okay with it. Richardson is easily the best back Indy has had since James. With a good QB and passing game, he should flourish. The big question is can he stay healthy? If so, then I think at a minimum, it will be a decent trade. Maybe better.

    Outside of Luck, the Colts have not been overly successful with 1st round draft picks for a while now. I know it's a new regime so it's not fair to blame Grigson for that, but the larger point is that late 1st round picks certainly aren't sure bets. Richardson is definitely a a good bet if his health holds up.

    What is concerning however is that their defense and O-Line probably should've been a higher priority. I'm just not sure how that gets fixed. It's clear the Colts have decided to double down on the offense, but it's hard to do that when the O-line is so bad.
