    It hit me all of a sudden. Kullman was pursuing Josh Fogg? First Rick White, and then Josh Fogg!

    Here's hoping Wayne Krivsky knows what he's doing.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    Perhaps that's why Krivsky fired him?

    Wouldn't be a bad reason.

    Re: Josh Fogg turned down a contract offer from the Reds

    Well if Fogg joined the Reds, he might actually have a hard time winning a slot, since Milton, Wilson [if healthy], Harang, and Clauseen are pretty much guaranteed rotation slots.

    Maybe he figures he has a better chance of beating out Colorado's fifth starter than Dave Williams. Plus, there's still the chance that the Reds might move Pena or Kearns for another starting pitcher.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Re: Josh Fogg turned down a contract offer from the Reds

    Why!?!?! If you are a pitcher like Fogg would you turn down a gig in a pitcher friendly park like DC has?

    I can underestand him not wanting to be here in Cincy (at the moment) but in the HUGE PARK IN DC? Wow!
