    Re: MLB Rumors 6/16- Reds Players 2

    I don't see much wrong with what DePodesta's done. Dumping Green, letting Beltre walk and getting rid of the overrated LoDuca are all points in his favor. Eliminate LoDuca's fluke great season a few years ago and he hasn't been what the media hypes him to be.

    Meanwhile, Drew is very quietly putting together a strong season despite his miserable start, and Jeff Kent is putting up numbers right in line with his career norms. Not only that, DePodesta's also figured out a way to keep Milton Bradley from getting himself suspended every other month. Choi's probably been a disappointment for him, and the Lowe signing might come back to bite him, but losing Gagne is a massive blow and Perez has been out for awhile now too.

    The more DePodesta is able to piece together the team how he sees fit, the more games they'll start winning, IMO. The anomaly Beltre was last season contributed to quite a few wins that were probably unexpected and now they've fallen back down a bit from that.

    I remember Dodger fans being mad about getting older over the offseason.

    Derek Lowe- 32 yrs.
    Jeff Kent- 37 yrs.
    Jose Valentin- 35 yrs.
    Ricky Ledee- 31 yrs.

    At the time (last off-season) everyone was questioning all his moves. Especially the Jeff Kent pick-up.

    Hey, not to change the subject, but someone mentioned SD being interested in Milton. Does anyone disagree that the Reds(while they're in the salary eating mood) should cut their losses and eat some salary and send Eric's ass to sunny Cali? An Eric trade is in my prayers every night

    Absolutely they should, but that would mean DanO would have to admit failure and Carl Lindner would have to understand the concept of sunk costs.

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Last year was his first full year, and his partials probably won't give him super 2 status, so I'd guess he won't be arb-el until after 2006.
    Makes all the routine posts.
