    Randa to Padres for 2 prospects

    Randa to Padres.

    His wife came into Trihealth today and said thanks for all the help, he is shipped to San Diego. Not sure on any other details, but this will go through I guess hindering on the Nevin to O's. Any prospects in mind, maybe they ship us Ponson for Randa?

    Wow. If true (and I have no reason to believe it isn't), nice scoop.

    Now I'm gonna try to figure out exactly what San Diego supposedly has that the Reds need. Wish me luck because I'll need it.

    I know Ponson is huge but he still doesn't qualify as two minor leaguers.

    I can believe that especially since they dealt Nevin. They Pads need a RH bat.

    Well, he IS huge enough to require two seats on the team charter.

    Randa's time in Cincinnati was short, but he played well while he was here. And, he provided a very memorable opening day moment. It was one of the sweetest feelings I've had at a baseball game.

    I wouldn't mind Thompson and a PTBNL.

    Nevin has a limited no-trade clause and has yet to approve of being dealt to the Orioles, according to Buster Olney.

    Re: Randa

    Buster Olney was just on ESPN News.

    Of course... the host asked him several questions about the Nevin deal. He barely mentioned Randa. No word on who the prospects are.

    In the meantime...

    www.rotoworld.com

    The Padres have reportedly acquired Joe Randa from the Reds for two prospects.
    No word on the prospects yet. Randa will immediately take over as the Padres' third baseman. The Reds should promote Edwin Encarnacion to replace Randa, but it's possible they'll go with Rich Aurilia for now. Jul. 23 - 2:07 pm et

    Gotta give pen some pos rep for the scoop (and coming to RZ to post it).
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.
