    I think we gave up way too much in Manning for White...but White HAS to be better than Matthews.

    That being said, Claussen would look great out of our pen to start out...Sanchez anyone?

    Was White traded for Manning last year?

    Every time I saw White pitch this year he got bombed.

    Maybe the Yankees want a closer with 27 saves too.

    Yes they were. This is more like prisoner exchange than a trade.

    And that had better be a lot of cash, Gabe's still owed $1+ million this season. If the Reds are paying most of it, I'm once again not impressed by DanO's spending decisions.

    Side prediction, Richie Gardner's heading to Chattanooga in the very near future (perhaps tomorrow).

    Great pickup?!!!

    This guy has an 8.27 ERA in 20.2 IP and has given up 33 H and has a WHIP of 1.92.

    Unless Gullett rounds him into last years pitcher, this is anything but a GREAT pickup.

    Damnit! I thought Bowden was gone.

    We got another player named "cash" and another player named "to be named later".

    The trade was kind of screwed up. Oringinally we got Manning with Claussen and money last year for Boone and Gabe White. Then it was split up, we got Manning, Claussen, $400,000 for Boone, the we got either a PTBNL or cash for White. I believe it turned out we got Cash at the end of the season for White.

    Matthews: 3.95 ERA
    Norton: 4.33 ERA
    White: 8.27 ERA

    Much better than those two. Yep.

    Even though he has not had a great year so far this year. I think this is an improvement for the bullpen. Put in White and get rid of Reith and that would be an improvement.

    No way the Reds will carry 3 lefties.

    I say you send out Norton and Mathews and bring up Sanchez to go along with White.

    Norton has had two straight excellent outings.
