    Of course, that is all contingent on what kind of deal they have cooking to include him in.
    Absolutely agree. If you trade him, it better be for a long-term goal. Otherwise, if you are not keeping him on the current roster, send him down - with the right message and give him the time to develop.

    Sorry - I went star and then obscure.

    Hey don't forget Steve Larkin, Eduardo Perez, Mike Bell and Pete Rose Jr.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    If Mike Burns and Rick White pitch better than Todd Coffey and Ryan Wagner this year, I'll get the Cubs logo tattooed on my rear.

    That's how confident I am that Burns and White have no business on this ballclub.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I'll go on record as saying Burns will outpitch the other three.

    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    I looked at Burns' minor league stats and they weren't half bad, although he was always old for the league he was in. Nevetheless, just going on stats, I don;t see why he couldn't be a competent middle reliever.

    It'd be nice if he acquired more outs on his own, but I'd like to see the Reds put together something cheap for Aaron Cook.
