    Cedric regardless if your opinion that Griffey is done is right or wrong, there is some demand for him.

    Denorfia clearly has limited tools but his game is a nice change around here. Time to bust this team up a little.......

    Yeah, but it has bad consequences. I've been using the word diffident a lot of late in regards to DanO because it really sums up his modus operandi. The diffident aren't inactive so much as they're ineffectual when they take action. So he's always trying to figure out what the common wisdom is in order to make "safe" moves as a substitute for his lack of judgment - pick a pitcher with decent win totals, pick a veteran whose name everyone knows, trade for a kid or two you've seen on BA's top 10 team prospects list.

    He's far from done. I just meant he's done as an everyday CF and should be at 1b.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Only if he can stay healthy. He has never played a full season with the Reds and playing 120+ games after 4 injury plagued season looks like a huge red flag. I'm highly skeptical that he will ever play 120 games again unless he were to spend considerable time as a DH.

    Re: Outfielder to be traded

    I think the competitor he is means he'll still need to play in the field but perhaps LF, with some DH (cold nights, wet field, day after night) and an offseason to baseball train not rehab can help play 120+ without becoming 100% DH. I believe he can make more than a year comeback and string together maybe three more before father time catches him totally. His father aged well and HOFers have an arc that the peak starts very high. I can see year being surpassed in performance by him.

    Little too early in the day to be hitting the sauce, Krusty.

    Im not interested in stranger things, just better. The way to get better is with better players, not ones that play a different style.

    The reds style of offense is not, not, not, the reason they lose.

    It's the pitching.

    If trading some of that offense can bring the needed pitching, fine.

    However, i have little confidence in th eability of this GM to make a wise trade for good pitching. My biggest fear is trading the best offensive playor on the team (Dunn) for another Eric Milton.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    If I'm trading Dunn to Houston, it'd be for Roy Oswalt straight up.

    That's the only type of deal I make for Dunn, a proven major league pitcher.

    I still like Dunn to LA for RHP Chad Billingsly and either RHP John Broxton or the infielder Guzman.
