    God this is incredible. DanO, you are so fired it's pathetic. You're also creating a situation that will make a new GM work their butt off just to get back to ground zero.

    He isnt that bad guys... he was a catalyst for St. Louis during the pennant run in 04... Hopefully he'll return to that form... Plus it gives us insurance since he can play both infield/outfield, like Freel.

    He was still below average offensively that year. Womack is pathetic. He can't hit and isn't a particularly great fielder. He wouldn't be a bad pinch run guy.

    I prey thta the Yanks are covering his salary and are getting 2 fringe prospects that have no chance of making it.

    Dumb. I bet Howard would be a better bet in the majors RIGHT NOW over Womack.

    Casey and 2 minor leaguers for Dave Williams, Tony Womack and 3M (Maybe Aurilia or someone not that good). Horrible.

    Well, DOB ate all the doughnuts on my side anyways. No big loss there.

    The Casey deal is one thing. I can deal with that. It wasn't a HORRIBLE trade. We saved alot of money, and got a pitcher better than some of the pitchers we pitched last year. More importantly, we fixed the OF problem.

    But then, he offers arbitration to Rich Aurilia. Ugh.

    Now, he's trading for Tony freaking Womack. TONY WOMACK. Someone kill me.

    Womack's only possible use is as a pinch runner and pinch runners shouldn't be paid $2 million per. If we give him and his monster .556 OPS / 47 OPS+ any at bats it would be too many.

    The Yanks must have dirt on OBrien.

    Yeah I would have at least given it a chance, however we all thought Chris Booker was better than he was also. Or Brandon Larson AKA Mr. 4A. I see a platoon situation w/ Freel & Womack at 2B it could be worse. They are both simply a stop gap measure at this point until Bergolla can figure how to use a wooden stick. However I would (A) hope that Aurilia doesn't accept arbitration so we can get a draft pick, and (B) hope that the NYY's at least are going to pay some or all of Womacks contract! Another possible note is if we can find a legit 2B between now & the beginning of the season we could deal him or let him go.

    HOW COULD IT BE WORSE? bergolla is better than womak. howard may never turn into anything, but you have to look at it first. he was a good hitter, a switch hitter. and we gave him up for junk. we could have let him play, hit 000 and still trade him for womak. womak is that bad and the yankees wanted to get rid of him that bad

    Well it seems to me the Castinelli is starting to bring in his own players with Womack coming to Cincinnati. That's the only that can even make a bit of sense unless we all can't think of a better excuse and blame O'Brien.
