    Wainwright has been in the Major Leagues all season. The last time he was a minor leaguer was in 2005. Anthony Reyes is in the St. Louis Cardinals rotation, so he wouldn't be considered a minor leaguer either. If this report is true (I doubt it is), then it must be a package of one of the Cardinals other many minor league pitching spects.

    be nice if Krivsky can counter this move and make a big trade with the Marlins. On yahoo it says they need a young CF

    we trade Deno (CF), Claussen(SP), Travis Wood(SP), Edwin (3B) and another prospect Robert Manuel (SP)
    for Willis (SP), Herges (RP), and Cabrara (3B)

    this would be a great trade for the Reds!

    Or you could just do Deno for Joe Borowski and a Mitre if he gets healthy and call it a day.

    P.S. The Fish would never do that deal, and no way we would be able to afford Willis and Cabs in about 2 years.

    The Cards system is weak, no way they get Sorianio without Reyes or Wainwright going to Washington.

    then it must be a package of one of the Cardinals other many minor league pitching spects

    You guys forget who the Washington GM is. JimBo wouldn't know good, young pitching if it was in front of him.

    If Ankiel weren't injured, they could present him as the only 6-tool outfielder in the minors. Jimbo would probably trade half the team for him.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    that is one of the funniest things i've read on here in a long time and so TRUE!

    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    You've got to admit though, Jimbo easily won the Soraino trade which he was heavily mocked for in the offseason (Not calling you or anyone out, I don't remember who said what)..

    Wilkerson is only hitting 238/337/456 and Soriano is having an outstanding season.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Bowden is a natural foil anywhere Reds' fans hang out. I don't recall Bowden getting any more mocking for the Soriano deal than for the leather pants or the drinking.

    Bowden really hasn't proven anything with the soriano deal until he proves he can get a bonifide return for the guy. If he gets a package like he did for Denny Neagle, then he has blown it.

    Actually, with Soriano, Livan Hernandez, Jose Guillen, and possibly Tony Armas, Bowden better be doing his homework because he has the chips to really load up the Nationals' system. I just wonder how many five tool outfielders we see going his way.

    .
    I recall it being laid on heavy. Bowden was supposedly an idiot because Wilkerson had a nice career OBP, was younger, and under control for 2 more years. Soriano was more expensive and a pending free agent. And there's was plenty of "Bowden is an idiot" talk when Soriano initially refused to go to the OF. I'm not saying Bowden is a god, he makes mistakes like everyone, but this move turned into a stroke of genius. Now he's got probably the most desirable hitter on the market at the trade deadline.. The guy is a hitting machine and can play LF or 2b in a pinch, and it's only a one year commitment.

    Now of course, Bowden might mess up the trade of Soriano for prospects, we'll have to wait and see. But it's not a given.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
