    Womack available for trade???

    Per Tim Kurkjian on ESPN.com:

    Second base, Reds: Rich Aurilia, Ryan Freel, Tony Womack, Frank Menechino and Matt Kata are all battling for this spot. But in reality, this likely is going to be a nightly mix-and-match for manager Jerry Narron. Don't expect any Reds second baseman to play 140 games this year.

    Aurilia will likely play the most games, but he's also the fallback plan at third base if rookie Edwin Encarnacion labors defensively. Freel can back up at third, and can play three outfield positions, where he'll be needed after the Reds traded Wily Mo Pena to the Red Sox Monday. Womack has been made available, if any team wants to make a trade for him.
    I'm sure that's a big IF.

    I had my hopes up until I read a 2nd part of his article:

    Closer, Reds: They have lots of relievers, and no closer. If the season opened today, it would be a right-handed/left-handed combination of Rick White and Kent Mercker. Todd Coffey is a set-up guy, but he could close, as could Ryan Wagner and Matt Belisle, among others.
    I think he meant David Weathers instead of Rick White. At least I hope so.

    There has to be a GM out there who's desperate to add some veteran presence to the lineup.

    Someone call Jim Bowden, he has a history of getting poor fielding second basemen to move to new positions.

    We'll take pretty much nothing in return.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Or some manager who is not that secure with his 2nd baseman du jour

    Maybe one of the better teams will be looking for an older, slower version of Herb Washington. I really don't see any other value
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    Didn't we read a week or so ago, that the Cubs are looking to trade Todd? Though I know most on the board don't like him either.

    Now that's not fair, I think we can all agree on liking Johnny Bench. And what about Santa Claus? Who could not like Santa?

    Would anyone here actually take tony Womack over Todd Walker?
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
