    No kidding?? Hmmm.

    Here's AP's story.

    Phillies get C Stinnett from Reds
    CINCINNATI – The Philadelphia Phillies got catcher Kelly Stinnett from the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday for a player to be named.
    The deal gives the Phillies a backup catcher and saves the cost-conscious Reds some money. Stinnett hit .229 with three homers and 19 RBIs in 60 games this season.
    Stinnett will be eligible to play in the postseason because the trade was made before Sept. 1. The Phillies are trying to make the playoffs as the NL wild card.
    “I had a feeling, but I didn’t think it was going to be today,” Stinnett said, following the Reds’ 5-0 loss to St. Louis. “I figured it would be late in September, when somebody needed an extra guy maybe because of injury. Going today makes it extra exciting because of the possibility of the postseason.”
    The Reds have made six trades and lost another player to a waiver claim since July 29, when they began slashing payroll and stocking up on prospects as part of a sudden rebuilding movement.
    Stinnett makes $1.3 million this season and has a mutual option for next year at $750,000. He will get a $250,000 buyout if the option isn’t exercised.
    Stinnett has also played for the New York Mets, Milwaukee and Arizona during his 10 seasons in the majors. He is a career .235 hitter with 54 homers and 197 RBIs.
    To make room on the 25-man roster for Stinnett, the Phillies optioned right-hander Brandon Duckworth to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Duckworth will return to Philadelphia when major league rosters expand Monday.

    Why bother sending Duckworth to AAA, just send him over here.

    and from mlb.com:

    The Reds are expected to call up Double-A Chattanooga catcher Dane Sardinha to take Stinnett's roster spot instead of Miller. Miller is the starting catcher for Triple-A Louisville, which made the playoffs.

    Since I don't live in the area I don't know if I can gauge this correctly, but I get the feeling that Bowa doesn't really like Duckworth. I know he had an injury earlier in the season (tendonitis?). Duckworth is almost 28, isn't he?
    Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

    I'm actually kinda looking forward to seeing him, just to find out if his glovework really is all that great.

    Another 250k saved. That only leaves 11.75 million to go.

    Here goes my usual. Let's see them recommit the money just saved toward signing a pick to increase organizational talent.

    This is another one of those trades that doesn't hurt us as Corky would be here next year anyway. If we can't anyone that's better then nobody. Duckworth would be a great pick up. I bet this one is a position player. Anyways, it gives us more cash flexibility and another prospect.
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!

    Phils might wait to see if they want the overly hyper Larry Bowa back next yr before letting Duckworth go.

    We actually save about $200,000 this year (in salary) and $250,000 next year, plus the $20,000 waiver fee. That's a nice haul. I'd be surprised if we got anything of value, as having the Phillies cover that $$ is good enough.

    Does this mean Sardinha will be available for the post-season roster?

    Dane does not deserve a callup. Imo, he just has not done enuff to warrant it.
