    shocker, but not a shocker

    Reitsma had some value compared to most of the :thumbdn: the Reds have. Now, did Dan retrench with a good prospect or just a sideways move. The Reds have plenty of RH relief pitching, but you don't want to blow value for crap.

    Try "Bubba Nelson", at least I hope its him instead of Joe Nelson ( a relief pitcher)

    I bet its Bubba Nelson, here's his Rotoworld.com writeup from last year:

    Nelson was 8-10 with a 3.18 ERA, 106 H and 77/45 K/BB in 119 IP for Greenville. The 2000 second-round pick gets a lot of grounders with his low-90s sinking fastball and projects as a third or fourth starter in the majors

    Reitsma to the Braves

    Just released:

    Chris Reitsma just got traded to the Braves for June Kewn Bong (sp) and Bubba Nelson

    More details to follow



    I don't like this...all that hassle with fighting his arbitration case and then they get rid of him for, really, no good reason....I thought he was a good member of the staff

    Yeah, McConnell said Ryan Nelson, the news came on and said Bubba Nelson.
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    Jung Bong makes sense in that the Reds and O'Brien were not happy with the left handed relievers in spring training. Bong gives us that lefty specialist in the pen this year and than can be moved to the rotation next year when Haynes, Wilson, and Lidle are most likely gone. That gives us two lefties for the rotation next year in Claussen and Bong. I like the way its shaping up.

    Projects as a third or fourth starter eh? How many of those guys do the Reds already have?


    OTOH, if the Braves add both Reitsma and Cruz to their starting rotation, they could surprise this year. I was real worried about them when I heard that Jaret Wright had made their rotation.

    O'Brien shows first sign of a philosophy: nondominant arb-eligibles will be discarded quickly if they have trade value. It's a plan that I've been advocating for years

    the flip side is that I think that Reitsma has the talent to show dominance, and the Reds have no potential dominators other than Wagner

    SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) _ Right-hander Chris Reitsma was traded to
    the Atlanta Braves on Friday for two pitching prospects after never
    finding a niche with the Cincinnati Reds.
    Reitsma was voted the club's outstanding pitcher last season
    when he filled just about every role on the staff. He went 9-5 with
    a 4.29 ERA and 12 saves in three starts and 54 relief appearances.
    The Reds obtained left-hander Jung Keun Bong and right-hander
    Bubba Nelson. Both are younger than Reitsma and are considered
    starters primarily.
    Bong, 23, appeared in 45 games for the Braves over the last two
    seasons, including one start. Nelson, 22, reached Triple-A for the
    first time last season.
    Since Dan O'Brien took over as general manager last November, he
    has emphasized developing young starting pitching, one of the
    organization's main weaknesses under GM Jim Bowden.
    Reitsma, 26, was considered a promising prospect when the Reds
    promoted him to the majors in 2001, but soon fell out of favor. He
    went 7-15 with a 5.29 ERA in 29 starts, the most by any NL rookie
    that year.
    He bounced between Triple-A and the majors each of the next two
    seasons, and the Reds started trying him in relief. He became the
    closer after Scott Williamson was traded to Boston last July.
    With Danny Graves moved back into the closer's role this year,
    Reitsma's role was getting redefined again. The Reds also brought
    in Todd Jones to compete for a setup job on Thursday, further
    limiting his value.
    Overall, Reitsma was 22-32 with a 4.52 ERA in 53 starts and 73
    relief appearances with Cincinnati
