    why cant we trade with the angels

    the angels offense is past pathetic, they have six starters and excellent middle relievers as well as excellent minor league pitchers, they have no proven catcher. Donnelly, Bootcheck, shields any of these pitchers could help. Their offense needs a prompt transfusion to be certified as anemic

    Because after what Norm Charlton and Deion Sanders did to him when he played for the Dodgers, Mike Scioscia hates the Reds.
    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!

    Re: why cant we trade with the angels

    I've been pushing this for weeks. The Angels are the perfect match. They need offense, particularly OF help, and have pitching of all types to spare.

    -edit for spelling- that's what I get for sneaking RZ posts in when I should be working...

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Actually, when Maloney and Nolan were traded to the Angels their careers where finished. I don't think that Chico Ruiz' career ever started. And we flipped them Johnson (who we got, along with Wayne Granger for a fading Vada Pinson) for a much needed pitcher, Jim McGlothin, who had some success with us before arm injuries ended his career.

    I don't understand the jeremiads cast at the puissant arms of the Rhinelanders.

    the puissant arms of the rhinelanders have been looking quite attenuated and asthenic lately. Why, the output of the relievers almost matches the dominance of the KC Royals. The Reds bullpen would be much improved if they would add a proven arm so that they would then have three humeri

    Actually, just this week, Kotchman began his rehab assignment. Assuming that takes anywhere from a few weeks to a little over a month, he should be ready to contribute in the second half. Certainly in time for a September callup somewhere.
