    Shawn Estes

    Buddy of mine just called giving me crap that we just traded for Estes. Haven't seen anything on the board. Is he pulling my leg or is this just a non-event?

    Yep, looks like it's real.

    ESPNEWS is reporting that it's Estes and cash for two minor leaguers (didn't say who) and two players to be named later.

    It's true, according to cbs

    http://www.sportsline.com/mlb/transactions

    Acquired pitcher Shawn Estes and cash from the New York Mets for pitcher Pedro Feliciano, outfielder Elvin Andujar and two players to be named.

    I wonder if Rijo's still starting on Saturday? (The way I figure it, Estes was originally scheduled to start for the Mets tonight)

    OK, now the question is, how fast will it take the people that called Estes "soft" and "gutless" a month ago to now jump on the Shawn Estes bandwagon?

    This may take care of having a "bullpen day" on Saturday. Rijo's start is probably history. I wonder who goes away?

    Nice to make a trade - should have been done a month ago to see some benefit, IMHO.

    Nice to have a lefty going into the Cards series, though.

    Does anyone know who these prospects are?? What team did they play for? Are they legit prospects? I don't think I have ever heard of them before and usually I at least recognize names of Reds prospects/minor leaguers. Feliciano and Andujar? Also, that is 4 PTBNL the Reds owe. 2 from the Moehler acquisition and now 2 for Estes. Doesn't Estes become a FA at the end of the year??

    Those recent stats look just wonderful.

    I hope we don't give up too much for those statistics. I guess Estes is not that far removed from a little success. When you're the Reds, I guess you take what you can get. I hope he comes in and turns it around. Anyone know what kind of money he makes?

    WOW...this is awesome. Great move Jim Bowden is all I can say. The Reds appear to be sliding out of it and he goes out there and picks up a great pitcher for us. I love this.

    I'll give it to Bowden. He's trying with what he has to work with.

    I hope we don't need Estes to bean anyone. He sure didn't handle the job when Clemens needed to be "dusted".

    Estes hasn't approached "great" since 1997. He was pretty good last year (low 4 era), and nothing special this year.
