    I have no clue if Jimenez is a badguy or not. Klesko, when he was in Atlanta was a so called problem too, so who knows?
    I agree hearsay is hearsay. but I lived in atlanta in the entire time klesko was with Braves and I don't recall anyone ever calling him a bad guy. now, I could be wrong on that, but ......

    I've been here since 88 myself..

    I didn't say that Klesko was a "bad guy", but there were some rumblings about him..he complained about playing time, mostly because Cox refused to let him hit against LHP.

    Not saying that Klesko wasn't right to complain either, Bobby screwed him for a long time.

    Don't want to start anything about race, creed, etc...but latino's seem to get more of a rap for not working hard and that always strikes me as odd. In this case -he came back from a broken neck for god's sake. He may be a real lazy guy-but that seems to be a good sign.

    Lastly, did anyone notice in the SI player ratings that most of the guys who were considered lazy were latino--most of the guys considered hard working were white.

    These guys come to a foreign country--they raised in poverty (for the most part) and sign for peanuts. Many of them dint even have proper diets, yet they get considered "lazy". That strikes me as a little bit of pre-judgement.

    Good points all around coop, and that's why I think Jimenez is more than worth a look. But I will also point out that Klesko's played with hundreds of players from Latin America, and Jimenez was the one guy he pegged as the 'laziest in 10 years.'

    Joe Morgan had a reputation before he came to Cincinnati; he said it was because people in the Houston clubhouse/front office were prejudiced. History would suggest that Morgan was correct.

    Maybe Klesko didn't think he spent enough time in the weight room or something frivolous like that.

    All I'm saying is that if D-Lo dogs it, we've been warned.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    Jiminez is far from a guaranteed salve for any of the Reds' ills. He's got the ability to be a good hitter, but he hasn't been one. His defense and speed never rebounded after the car crash. As chili notes, his attitude has left many unimpressed.

    Yet I still like the trade. He's got abillity and he's played well enough to hold down a big league roster spot. Sometimes players take a long time to figure it all out - Mark McLemore springs to mind.

    I like Scott Dunn. He had arguably the best stuff in the system (well, now that Ryan Wagner's around, the second-best stuff). He looks like he might be putting things together in AA as a reliever, but he's been on a yo-yo all year. Everytime his ERA starts to get low, he gets shelled and it's another 10 days before he's back under 4.00 again. He's got talent, a lot of it. IMO another organization would be wise to try him in the rotation again and see if they can sort him out.

    But I like the trade. As Arschloch noted, they're almost the same age and Jiminez has been in the majors for three years already. He'll get a shot at 2B soon enough no matter what Jimbo says in public. If D'Angelo hits, the job will be his no questions asked.

    Let's see, that gives the Reds Jiminez, Olmedo and Lopez as 25-and-under 2B/SS candidates. What are the odds of Barry Larkin finishing the month as a Red if the club continues to lose touch with .500? IMO, not high.

    I don't think this is a bad trade by any stretch of the imagination. It only costs us Scott Dunn, who I don't see as a player that will help the major league team. At worst, D'Angelo is a bat off the bench that can play 3 different infield positions. At best, he could be our starting 2nd baseman and leadoff hitter. This seems to me, to be a good long term and short term trade.

    I think Castro is gone. Be it after the season is over, if not sooner.

    This gives the Reds 3 switch hitters for SS & 2nd to look at long term. 22 year old Olmedo, 25 year old Jimenez and 23 year old Lopez.

    We haven't discussed this trade could be the start or another trade. The Reds take a few days to get to know and rate Jimemez with their other MIs. Then they can package one of their MIs with other players for a starting pitcher. Florida might want one of our MIs if LC is leaving the Marlins in a deal for SP Penny. Who knows Jimemez might be leaving again soon but I doubt it.

Flyball - results vs. flyball pitchers. Average G:F - results vs. a pitcher classifed as neither a groundball or flyball pitcher. Finesse - results vs. "finesse" pitchers. Finesse pitchers defined as such before the season begins based on the past five year's performance. If the pitcher's BB+SO/IP is less than 0.93, he is classified as "finesse."

    Sorry guys, my last post with the ESPN Stats looks terrible. He hits better as RHB than LHB, hits better on the road, turf and day games.

    I absolutely love this trade. We now have, for the future, 3 guys who can play SS/2nd. At the end of last year, we had none.

    Ray-Ray did not factor into the equation at the end of last year.

    Actually that might be the worst formatted post ever !!!!!

    But your other point: "We haven't discussed this trade could be the start or another trade. The Reds take a few days to get to know and rate Jimemez with their other MIs. Then they can package one of their MIs with other players for a starting pitcher. Florida might want one of our MIs if LC is leaving the Marlins in a deal for SP Penny. Who knows Jimemez might be leaving again soon but I doubt it."

    I actually heard this same thing from a media member I know.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    And who might this media member be?

    Don't hold out on us JAX!

    This trade kinda perked up my day, and the implosion on the field did nothing to diminish my good feeling.

    And I hope this is the start of some kind of front office movement, be it bringing in guys that can help now, or soembody that can help in the near future while trimming some of the fat.

    I , for one would fine and dandy with retooling and tweaking for next year or the year after. I'm glad they at least threw me a bone today.

    I liked the Jiminez idea a lot more before the skeletons started popping out of the proverbial closet

    DJ sounds like a remix of Jose Guillen and Felipe Lopez. Highly touted but lacking the "it" that makes 'em stick as ML regulars. Now, maybe DJ and FL will take the "long road" like Guillen and turn their careers back around...who knows? But this practice of acquiring talented players with questionable characters feels eerily familiar...it reminds me of a local roundball team that tried it and found out that the bad boys don't necessarily produce good results

    (If DJ has to sit around like WMP, will that improve his work ethic? I'm thinking he'll be sulky)

    M2...keep sellin' that "Larkin is gonzo" take. Certainly no one else is whispering that Barry has wanderlust or that anyone else is interested in acquiring him...if a deal comes to pass you'll have beaucoup kudos to go along with your achey-breaky heart
    Never overlook the obvious

    I've never seen him play but I just looked at some pictures of him and Klesko wasn't lying.

    There's absolutely no desire in those dull eyes. Go ahead and look for yourself.

    I think JimBo just got "tooken", as my son likes to say.

    Let me guess: you're a scout for the Reds.
