    He wasn't simply given away for nothing.

    Also it simply wasn't about the money.

    Re: Chris Reitsma

    The Reds were projecting Nelson AND Bong as starting pitchers. I think they "thought" Nelson would be ready for his cup of coffey last summer than a major player on the 2005 team.

    Instead, Nelson is being re-groomed as a closer.

    Whoever is running the "major league" side of DanO's operation, well, flat stinks.

    Bubba Nelson was said to have #1 starter stuff. He had great numbers in the minors.

    Dan O saw an opportunity to add a special arm and that arm crash and burned


    Granted i was very upset to see Reitsma go, it wasn't the worst move in the world. I miss the good old days of the 99 bullpen.

    If Bubba or Bong was worth anything they would be on the team this year as bad as the pitching is. Also, you do NOT trade with the braves and take one of their pitchers. They don't trade 2 good pitchers for a middle releiver. They might trade 2 future AAA pitchers for a middle releiver though.

    You can take pitchers for the Braves. Look at Marquis and Wainright who have both blossomed since leaving the Braves.

    Nelson could still prove to be a special talent out of the pen.....I do side with those that DG has to go......

    Nelson is going to be here. And doesn't anyone else remember Chris imploding on a regular basis? Because he's better than the guys we've been running out there doesn't make him a stud. He was frustratingly inconsistent while he was here. Bong may never make it, my opinion of him isn't that high but Nelson is still young, has real talent and could very well end up our closer in the next year or two.

    IMO, the jury is still out on that trade.

    Agreed.

    At the time he was traded, he was the best reliever of the bunch. When pitching is the team's low spot, it seems to me you shouldn't trade away the best one!

    Many of us still expect Bubba to be a contributor here. How has he been EX? Is he dealing with being a reliever well?

    His changeup is probably faster than any fastball by a Reds pitcher.

    On a side note, I saw Todd Jones while I was in Miami. He had some very interesting comments about the organization but stopped short of bad mouthing anyone. Which is very respectable. As he pointed out they did give him a shot and it turned out well.
