    Yes and he can make some Pho to feel right at home.

    Apparently Baltimore is talking with Philly about Papelbon. I'd definitely get on the horn with the O's if I'm Walt and see what they would give up for Chapman.
    "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."

    Nope. He is now "The Greek God of Woks".

    Edit. I see someone already has beat me to the punch.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    Would we really want to trade Chapman?

    Brian Wilson just got a 1 year 10 million dollar deal after coming back from arm surgery and pitching 13.2 innings. What viable option is out there or on this team to replace a pitcher of Chapman's caliber? And at what cost?

    Redszone would erupt if we deal Chapman let alone to a team who wanted Votto & Cueto + for Erik Bedard..

    Viable option one: Makes $9 million per year.
    Viable option two: Makes $5.5 million per year.
    Viable option three: Makes the league minimum but has demonstrated major league success.

    All three options are currently under Reds team control for multiple seasons.

    Option 1 makes $7 Million in 2014 but nor has he nor Option 2 been healthy.. & if Option 3 was JJ Hoover.. we were ready to demote him after month 1 of this past season.

    All 3 are better options than Brian Wilson at $10 million.

    And I'd rather have any of those three closing + a major offensive upgrade than the status quo of Chapman closing and last year's team minus Choo.

    It's not about whose closing. It's about elite arms in the pen, and Chapman is the only one right now. Marshall could be if healthy, but that's far from certain.

    The bullpen as it stands right now, even with Chapman isn't that great. Without Chapman, it isn't even good.

    Re: Offseason Deals and Rumors

    Fay's latest blog quotes Walt saying the Reds never really had a chance with Choo, Hamilton "is the guy" to leadoff in CF and "I don't think we'll be able to get anything done" with Bronson Arroyo.

    2013 - Choo - Arroyo + Hamilton = 2014

    Minus Jhonny PEDalta, NL Central teams have spent $24.95M combined. That's less than $1M above Robinson Cano's annual salary for a decade.
