    Wait he was on the twins right? So we must have traded for him, and God I hope we didn't give up anything for him. Hopefully a PTBNL.

    Maybe they are concerned with Felipe?

    Or maybe they are going to deal Felipe for a pitcher?

    Juan Castro back!
    Cincinnati Reds general manager Wayne Krivsky today announced the acquisition of IF Juan Castro from the Minnesota Twins in exchange for minor league OF Brandon Roberts.
    Castro, 33, is expected to be in uniform for tomorrow's 7:10 p.m. game against the Chicago White Sox at Great American Ball Park. A corresponding 25-man roster move will be made when Castro arrives here.
    To make room for Castro on the 40-man roster, RHP Paul Wilson has been transferred to the 60-day disabled list. Wilson has been on the DL all season recovering from right shoulder surgery.

    Considered one of baseball’s best and most versatile defensive infielders, Castro has made 815 Major League appearances for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Reds and Twins. He played in Cincinnati for 5 seasons from 2000-2004 and then signed as a free agent with Minnesota in November 2004.
    Roberts, 21, was selected by the Reds in the seventh round of the June 2005 first-year player draft. This season at Class A Sarasota he was hitting .267 with 1 HR and 15 RBI in 60 games.

    While seriously hurting the offense.

    Maybe Kriv just got sick of the late inning errors? I can't fault him for that...

    I wouldn't be surprised if Olmedo gets sent back down.

    It'll help the offense if we aren't giving up unearned runs as much. I like this trade.

    That is, they will be helped by not having to climb back from deep deficits every game.

    I'd keep Ray. Get rid of White or Q. Ray has upside, the others do not.

    Unbelievable.

    You know it'll be Olmedo going down, not one of the bad pitchers or 3 headed catchers.
    Go Gators!
