    Maybe Billy Beane didn't read Moneyball

    Of course not, but given the choice of guessing a guy's future based on:
    A) ~80 games in the Minors OR
    B) ~20 games in the Majors,
    I'll select option A. Also keep in mind that last year he posted a 4.83 ERA for the A's which, although not especially impressive, isn't all that bad for a guy during his first partial season.

    Larson in LF, Mateo in CF, Dunn back to RF.

    Tomorrow it will be Larson @ 3rd base.

    dj...and cash adds to no on-field talent. Given Guillen is going to be a free-agent, it appears we got very good value for a non-pitcher. Let's hope the PTBNL is significant in the Williamson trade.

    Very nice trade, Reds. I know Guillen had eye-popping numbers, but I still smelled "career year" around him. Harang, alone, is worth Guillen straight up. I was shocked by the Williamson trade (hoping you guys would get more), but you came out on the high end on this one.

    Kudos.
    Hell of a race in the Central! Hang on for the ride!!!!!!!!!!

    WEll, I'm sure we'll get to see Harang soon enough. My guess is that he's immediately thrown into the rotation.

    Much better than getting just cash though.. I wonder if the public outrage over Williamson had anything to do with it.

    At least this deal is close enough to reasonable to reserve judgement.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Sounds like a decent deal. Now move Boone to Seattle for a couple more pitching prospects.

    He barely has a year of ML service time accumulated at this point.

    I see Harang listed at 6-7, 240... Never realized that before. Pretty big lefty. I'm getting Candelaria images.

    Guillen is the anti-Beane kind of hitter (Jose never takes a walk, etc) Hence the dog/cat apocalyptic reference from Ghostbusters

    Has Larson been called up? Too much input, today!
    Never overlook the obvious

    He doesn't even have a full year of Major League service yet, so he's still two years away from even being eligible for arbitration. He'll be making a few hundred thousand the next two years.

    Harang is not a lefty, is he?

    So what do the Reds do at 3B after Aaron is gone? I'm not convinced that Larson is the answer.
