    Thanks. Must've missed it. I've been trying to keep up, but they actually expect me to work here today. Cretins.

    Bye, Mr. Next Sammy Sosa.

    We absolutely got raped in this trade, we're stuck with Kearns, and as I've said many many times before, I think Kearns is the bust and Pena is the real thing. I mean, we've all had the reports on Austin's terrible uppercuts he's been taking...ugh I don't get this at all. This sets us back a bit.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    What was your point again?
    Yeah, he was in the minors for three years, but he probably needed 2-3 more. Blame the Yankees for that.

    I already stated WMP wasn't ready for bigs when he came and Dunn was. At least Dunn got to see AAA pitching before coming up.

    Just go read Mike Gosling's statline for the spring and think: No matter how much I love Wily Mo Pena, would have been able to stay sane watching this guy pitch every 5th day?

    Even if you hate everything else about this deal, at least a Germano/Gosling 5th starter option is now off the table.

    Please rephrase the Next Sammy Sosa Line. WMP is all natural.

    I still think he's going to get Green Monster Googly Eyes and think he's going to swing for the fences everytime up. I'm guessing 200 k's if he plays all year.

    Don't forget, Willy's good for a DL trip now and then.

    Why, just why, couldn't they have traded Kearns? He's the worst of the OFs, including Denorfia, but Boston still would've taken it.

    caveat emporer, I think I would rather keep Pena and throw Germano out there every 5 days. I mean I have to see Milton every 5 days, and eventually have to see Wilson too....Germano cant be that bad.

    Re: Trade: Wily Mo to Red Sox

    In two years when Pena is the MOST feared power hitter in the AL, people will be trying to remember WHO the BoSox traded to get him.

    So much for Krivisky......

    If this new GM had once ounce more brain, he would have waited 3 months, until WMP had 20 HR's and gotten 2-3 top prospect for him.....if he felt he need to trade him so badly.

    The only question here is.....doee Arroyo make the Reds competitive? Clearly, the answer is NOT A CHANCE.

    So, between the wounded duck (DanO) and our new GM, the Reds have lost the bats of Sean Casey and WMP in return for one awful pitcher and one who is maybe average.....terrible....just terrible.

    All I can say to this is again, rue the day Jimbo was fired AND bring on the Bengals.....the Reds now so clearly remind me of the 1990's Bungals.

    Having Arroyo may also free up Milton to move to the pen if he falls apart as he did last year.

    This trade does nothing to position this team for any long term success. It smacks of nothing but panic.
