    Dodgers--Reds Trade Talks?

    Taken from today's LA Times:

    Colletti declined to comment on a report on his team's website that the Dodgers were close to trading outfielder Cody Ross to the Cincinnati Reds. The Dodgers designated Ross for assignment last week. The Dodgers lead the majors with 20 stolen bases. The last time they were first in the National League in steals was 1970, when Willie Davis had 38, Maury Wills 28 and Manny Mota 11. ... First baseman Nomar Garciaparra and center fielder Kenny Lofton got the day off. Closer Eric Gagne is scheduled to start his throwing program Friday, three weeks after elbow surgery. June 1 remains a rough target date for his return. Luc Robitaille and Rick Monday threw out the ceremonial first pitches, Robitaille in honor of his recent retirement from the Kings and Monday in honor of the 30th anniversary of his rescue of an American flag from protesters trying to set it afire in the Dodger Stadium outfield. The hockey player threw a strike; Monday missed high and outside.
    If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.

    ..and Broxton.

    Hmm, let's see: Cody Ross, Odalis Perez, and Broxton for Jason LaRue, Ryan Freel and McCracken.

    yeah, that'll work.

    Remember when JimBo was collecting guys named Ruben (Mateo, Rivera, Sierra). Maybe Kriv is on a quest to collect guys named Ross (Cody, David...).
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    Interesting...I went to MLB.com and searched for Ross to find out a little about him. He turned up on a Cincinnati Reds page with an LA hat on...

    I guess it's a done deal? Who went back to LA...PTBNL ?

    I thought this would be getting more talk. Question is what will they do when Griffey comes back. The new guy has no options.

    So says John Fay:

    With Womack gone, there's no easy move to get Ken Griffey Jr. back on the roster Friday when he's eligible to be activated from the disabled list.

    "Yeah, it'll be a tough move," Reds general manager Wayne Krivsky said. "We'll deal with that when Junior's ready to play."

    If Griffey's not ready by Friday - but indications are he will - he'll be ready shortly thereafter.

    That fact that Ross is out of options is why the Dodgers designated him for assignment.

    There's a possibility Ross could be the player to go when Griffey returns, but it would seem unlikely the Reds would do that just a few days after trading for him.

    If not Ross, who goes?

    There are three possibilities:

    The Reds go with 11 pitchers. "Doubtful," Narron said. "But a possibility."

    The Reds designate Quinton McCracken, the other extra outfielder. McCracken is the last position player on the depth chart, along with Ross. But McCracken is a switch-hitter with a career average of .280 against right- handers. He's also a proven pinch-hitter (he had 19 pinch-hits for Arizona last year).

    The Reds go with two catchers. That doesn't seem likely given all the good things Narron has said about third catcher David Ross.

    Of course, the other possibility is the Reds will make another trade.

    Krivsky has shown no reluctance to make moves.

    I would imagine there is a team dumb enough to trade for a player with the knowledge that he will take up a roster space when another player is due to come off the DL and then cut him later in the week, but is that really enough of a possibility to put that in print? Fay strikes again.

    Barring a trade I am guessing that QM is getting pretty uncomfortable. The two other potential candidates (the Ross Boys) were both acquired in trades making it unlikely the Reds will attempt to pass them through waivers.
