    Reds not done trading with Red Sox?

    This from the Boston Herald:
    Boston and Cincinnati may not be done. The pitching-starved Reds have been eyeing relief pitcher Jermaine Van Buren, who was sent to the minors last week with the first round of cuts. The Sox are expected to trade Tony Graffanino within the next week

    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    Graffanino? Sure we could use a solid, veteran second baseman / utility player on this team.

    Don't know anything about Van Buren.

    Thanks, max. Certainly looks like a player that has some talent and isn't too far from being major league ready.

    I'm guessing some more chaff on the 40 man, a prospect. Dane Sardhina maybe? They just got Ross and Krivsky pretty much flat out said that they were going to risk losing Sardhina to waivers in an article yesterday re: Ross transaction. If it's Sardhina for Van Buren, sign me up.

    Maybe if the Reds acquire Van Buren, he and George Bush can throw out simultaneous first pitches, to see which fastball will have the better legacy.

    Maybe Germano or Elizardo? I could see both of them being moved this year since they were both O'Brien acquisitions, and neither one of them has a particularly high ceiling, or *has* to be kept for the team to be successful in the future.

    Maybe the Van Buren Boys will come see a game then.

    If he only has 8 fingers, I know from whom he can get a couple extras.

    Like the K ratio and three pitches. Really excelled as a reliever for the last two years after being a starter. Chris Booker's job is open in Louisville and you know one of the old men in the bullpen is going to flame or get traded. Give 'em back Dumatrait or Pelland.

    So how come they couldn't figure out a way to attach this kid to the Wily Mo deal??? I mean, if they're still negotiating for Van Buren, why did they sign off on Arroyo?

    Hold up a deal for an addition to your rotation for a 25 year old minor league closer? Sounds like O'Brien's way of doing business.

    Actually, the article didn't say the Reds were interested in Graffanino. That just seemed to be an add-on at the end.

    Too bad Van Buren couldn't have been thrown into the WMP trade.
