    Maybe there will be a "sucker" out there at the deadline, but I won't hold my breath.

    I guess DanO is just trying to catch lightning in a bottle. I predict White exasperates this board as much as our other lefties.

    It seems that O'Brien at least made a reasonable trade. White can be streaky for sustained periods. If Gully gets him squared away, he can be one of the most effective lefties around. If not he gets moved around the deadline for Pylo Cash.

    Rotoworld is saying that the Reds are getting $700,000 plus the player to be named. :GAC:

    White is more likely to help the Reds win this year than Manning is, which I thought was the objective of most folks on this board who are clammoring for a playoff run.

    Why is this a problem? We are still hanging around even with a bunch of injuries and Mr. Gasoline and Lighted Match in the back end of the bull pen.
    Losing last night was a problem but not this trade.

    I like this deal, if the money is right. It may not pan out, but White has had some very successful years. Reith never has and never will, and I'm glad to see him off the roster. The prospect they gave up is reportedly not stellar.

    Why not.

    Next move, unload Graves. Put the money into a starting pitcher or two. Sign Leskanic. He can surely save the same percentage of games as Graves for a lot less money.

    Re: Reds Acquire Gabe White

    Upon further consideration ...

    I've been gone for the past week and out of communication with the sports world. After looking at the boxes for the past week (I'm glad I was out of touch - shesh!) how does one complain about the FO acquiring a major league pitcher with a solid track record in Cincy for a 25 year old lefty in AA ball. Aside from the injuries this bullpen is awful. What's not to like - Reith goes away and White is added?

    The FO has made two moves unlike the past - releasing Haynes and acquiring White. This is encouraging not alarming. What is alarming is Danny Graves in the 9th with a lead to protect or Ryan Freel having to play every day or Kearns spending more time in Louisville than in Cincy.

    I know Tracy has been saying to vote vote vote...I'm not sure about Furball, I'm usually getting ready for the game and don't get a chance to hear him much.

    Re: Reds Acquire Gabe White

    White always seemed to flourish in Gullet so why not? It isn't a bad deal by any stretch, and if he regains his form it will be a great deal. I am convinced that some here just need to complain for th esake of complaining.

    Re: Reds Acquire Gabe White

    Seems like a fairly low-risk deal here; to see if White still has it outside of New York isn't costing us much in either money or talent. As others have calculated, the net cost of White is about $500k (even less, actually, if dumping Reith saves us anything). Manning is 25 and approaching non-prospect status.

    well, my opinion of O'Brien has increased tremendously. He gets a big thumbs up for at least trying to reinforce the bullpen Better late than never.

    I really don't see how anyone can not like this deal. Manning is garbage. And Gabe's salary is heavily subsidized.

    Even if you think this club is not a legit contender, Gabe will bump Reith or another one of the dregs out of the pen, and make the club a lot more pleasurable to watch.. Welcome back Gabe
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Seriously, I applaud your optimism, but IMO this team is far from a contending club no matter where it sits in the standings now. It's just a matter of time. Make the best use of what talent you have to deal and move forward.
