    You sure know everything about these two players FCB. How many times you watched them or even heard about them before two minutes ago?

    Mallette's of the world can do that.

    Re: Todd Jones traded

    What did you expect for Todd Jones??

    Willie Mays?


    Seriously........what's the big deal. Jones can be re-signed next year if they want him again.

    What wear and tear? It's not like they are going to start abusing him just beacuse Jones is gone. Reidling basically takes over Jones role.

    2 reasons
    1) Todd Jones is having a 1 year aberration. He will revert back to 2000-2003 form next year so he isn't worth much.
    2) He will be a free agent.

    Machado if he learns to hit .260 could be an everyday SS. He walks a ton, has a little pop, great speed and is an outstanding defender at age 23.

    Not much to like about Hancock. 4.00 ERA in AAA this year. Low K rate.

    No, see, Jones could actually start AND finish a major league inning.

    Who cares, the season is over from a contending view. Jones has sucked the previous years and has slipped recently, ah, how we forget.

    Correll's a 23-year-old converted 3B who can do a little of everything, but does nothing spectacularly. He's kind of overshadowed in this organization. He's hitting .285/.357/.407 in Potomac; a classic low-round (29th) small-college (Limestone College!?) pick.

    Paul Janish, does a actually DanO pick. Olmedo and Lopez are Bowden era pickups.

    Well, Raisor just posted Hancock's career. See anything you like? I sure as hell don't.

    And Machado's another in a long line of MI who get bats knocked out their hands.

    The world is LOUSY with both types.

    Yea, but what's the big deal about Jones? I'm not even arguing that the kids will be anything. But what's the use of keeping Jones for three months? At least take a small shot that Machado can work out.

    Janish is in rookie ball. I like the good "D" high BB rate combo.

    Better than the swing at everything we seem to have in Castro, Olmedo and somewhat in Lopez.

    Oy, I'm not talking about contending, I'm talking about trudging through innings--they still HAVE to throw the ball and catch the ball for 50 more games, you know.

    Re: Todd Jones traded

    Count me in the camp of thinking this trade is stupid. I'm not saying I would sign Jones next year but there's no need to deprive our bullpen for what we've gotten. Are they assuming Acevado is going to take up the slack and call up Hudson? Or do they think they'll just overwork the bullpen so what we have can become worse?
