    Re: Pena traded for Arroyo

    Then I said that I would take a wait and see approach, and that is pretty much the approach I take with most trades. I rather liked Wily Mo, or should I say I liked the potential that he has, but at the time I knew realistically that the Reds needed pitching and he was one of those expendable pieces. I don't follow the AL that closely so I didn't have much of an opinion on Bronson before he came here, other than what I had seen of him in the post season the previous year. So with what I knew at the moment, my wait and see approach was about the best I could offer.

    Hindsight being what it is, I am happy with the trade, but I can also say that I found this thread to be very good reading the first time around, as well as now. There are so many folks on here who pay more attention to the game outside of Cincinnati that I sometimes feel like I have nothing much to offer regarding players who don't play here or the discussion of potential trades. I guess that's why I've done more reading than posting lately, especially in the off season.

    I liked the trade at the time, although I was fairly subdued about it. I figured we'd dealt from an area of strength to fill an area of need, so I liked that aspect of the deal. I figured Wily was our fourth-best OF, so I didn't mind seeing him go, although I recognized that he may someday turn into a offensive force. Bronson seemed like a #4 starter, so while I was happy to add some quality to the pitching staff, I didn't think he'd be a huge upgrade.

    At the time, I'd've given the trade a B-. Now? A+ for sure.

    I'm starting to think some people on RedsZone would eat their young.

    Just sayin.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.
