    Whats the word on Charlie Manning? Is he a loss?

    We can hope, eh?


    And as far as Manning goes, solid start this season, and a good friend of DMos, but has scuffled since the first month or so. Others can add more I'm sure.

    I can't believe people are complaining about this - Gabe White can pitch, sure he isn't having a good year, but Gully and Hume and White have always worked well together, and White inspires much more confidence than Norton or Matthews.

    And if the Reds pick up Leskanic, even better. Guys with proven track records AND time with Hume in the BP is always a good thing.

    According to this, we give up a player and cash to the Yankees for White.

    Can this be right?

    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.

    If we gave up Charlie Manning, Ptbn and cash for Gabe White, Dan O'brien needs to be fired.

    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).

    That's what I'm thinking. I also think this is a shot across the bow of the Cards. We'll be playing them a bunch in the next month and having 3 lefties in there could neutralize Edmonds and Renteria. I don't see what the big fuss is about. Everyone complained when Gabe was traded and no one liked Manning. Now we got Gabe back and Manning is gone and everyone is complaining again.

    It is Reith that is designated for assignment. I think White is a big improvement over Reith who has been a disaster all year.

    Agreed...but which is it...did we get White, cash, and PTBNL? Or did we give Manning, cash, and a PTBNL????

    Re: Reds Acquire Gabe White

    Exactly ChipR, Gabe is a veteran, he knows the National League so it shouldn't be that big of an adjustment. What I don't understand is that people are complaining "Please don't go get White, Heredia and Sullivan"! Hello, haven't people been saying all year that if we had last year's bullpen we would be in first place? Last year's bullpen including Gabe White and Scott Sullivan. If the Reds turn around and get Scott Sullivan as well, assuming he's healthy, all the better. Sullivan, White, Jones and Reidling are a good anchor in the bullpen. There are some other guys available so please shore up the pen.

    I choose to believe that's a mistake made by some editorial assistant. The Reds can't be giving up cash in addition to dropping an extra mil on White, surely they're smarter than that.

    Aren't they?
