    Re: Reds interested in Craig Wilson

    So if a deal involving Womack and Valentin for Craig Wilson would happen and it moves Freel into secondbase, the lineup would look something like this:

    1. Ryan Freel 2B
    2. Felipe Lopez SS
    3. Ken Griffey, Jr. CF
    4. Adam Dunn LF
    5. Craig Wilson 1B
    6. Austin Kearns RF
    7. Edwin Encarnacion 3B
    8. Jason LaRue C

    1. Aaron Harang
    2. Brandon Claussen
    3. Bronson Arroyo
    4. Eric Milton
    5. Dave Williams

    How would this potential move effect the feelings of those who didn't like the Pena deal?

    If VI's right - Krono buys the first round at the RedsZone gathering.

    Are people hearing things or is just this pure speculation?

    I see the OBP numbers for Wilson and don't really know for sure but his defense is probably better than Hatteberg. But why would we trade Valentin for anything but pitching prospects? We've been over this before... enough offense, not enough pitching. I can't really get excited that Wilson helps that much. Maybe Valentin and Womak for Gorzelanny or Bullington? or maybe we throw another player in for Wilson and a pitching prospect? That I could get excited about.

    That's what I've been suggesting. Won't happen, makes too much sense.

    I fail to see why the Bucs would have an interest in Womack.

    Re: Reds interested in Craig Wilson

    I've been trying to figure out how much Kriv hearts the Latin Love Machine. While Valentin came up in the Twins organization and was quite the prospect for several years there, he also played like crap and ended up losing out to a fading Terry Steinbach and was traded to Tampa Bay.

    My thought was that he also might not dig LaRue's erratic hands and defense and be eager to ship him off.

    Given the Dave Ross thing, he's obviously not fazed by catcher strikeouts if they have power.

    It's all quite the puzzle.

    My thoughts exactly on Larue. I don't think Wayne is gonna like watching Larue behind the dish.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    The more I think about this (potential) deal, the more it excites me. Go Krivsky go!

    Wilson for Valentin and Woemack makes me salivate. Not holding my breath, I haven't seen a non-intierm Reds GM makes a good move in a long time.

    Hey, why not just trade Dave Williams for that 1B the Pirates have. What's his name ... Sean something? I'm pretty sure his last name starts with a "C." :
