    I'm expecting something bigger than Kyle Lohse

    but what?

    5-1 means that this is no time to stop. I wonder where Joey Votto will be in two weeks?

    Re: I'm expecting something bigger than Kyle Lohse

    Wayne has said a couple times in recent days that he likes the team as is and isn't inclined to tweak it anymore.

    Which basically means I agree with you, something big must be up for the GM to say he wants to do nothing.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Are you trying to be cryptic with something you actually know? No offense but thoughts posed as a thread is pretty much clutter when there is running threads about the deadline...

    If you got something, spill the beans!

    How 'bout this:

    With a rough week ahead (3 @ NYM & 3 vs. Cincinnati), the Astros could be far enough back at the end of the month to raise the white flag on 2006.

    Would that make Roger Clemens available?

    not to the reds. he'll probably be headed to the Northeast.

    I can't see HOU making him available, regardless of their playoff chances. If he were to be moved, I'm guessing he'd point to NYY or BOS only.

    Roger Clemens, you're mad and I love it. John Smoltz, two. Keep it going, entertain me.

    agreed, there's no offense. Let's get Abreu. Might just cost a lot of cash

    I'm trying to think of your good post within those other 5387, but it's not coming back to me

    I see Votto as a key inexpensive component of the offense for the next few years. With the expected decline of Griffey, I don't see how you can move him, especially now that the O is weakened.

    I think if they can find another 6IP, 3 runs guy for middling talent (like, say, Lohse for Germano and a 2nd-tier prospect), that's what they'll do.

    Ok. Sure.

    Talk the other day was that the Reds needed another righty bat with some sock given the departure of Kearns & Lopez. Folks were even mentioning, horror of horrors, the return of Reggie Sanders.

    Well, there was a big article in my morning paper about Sammy Sosa and how he thinks he still has a few more HRs left in him.

    Sign him to a minor league deal & give him a few weeks of ABs in AAA.

    He's a FA, so it wouldn't cost anything.

    Yeah I thought Hatte was as stop gap for Votto, and with Kearns and Lopez gone, guys like Votto and Bruce should be untouchable.

    The Reds will need a #4-#5 starter, but have no idea who they'd give up to get him - Aurillia/Claussen/minor league arms?

    LC, CJ, I can't even read your posts-- static in my broadband, I reckon. Were you talking about what teams lust for Joey Votto and have an ace to deal? If so, I'm loving you guys.

    guy's Canadian, but I'm not surrendering him for Ted Lilly. But who couldn't use an extended Halladay?

    Dontrelle Willis-- not on a team that needs our pal Joey-- but still, coming around a little or no?

    Agreed.

    IMO, the Reds should not be shopping Bailey, Bruce, Votto, or Denorfia. The first two guys (Bailey, Bruce) have the potential to become superstars you can build a team around. The last two guys (Votto, Deno) figure to be quality everyday players who can provide dirt-cheap league-average production for the next 3-5 years. Guys who can produce league-average results while earning the minimum salary are invaluable to small market clubs like the Reds.

    Of course, if someone else brings one of those four into the conversation, the Reds should be willing to listen. But anyone that wants one of those four guys had better be prepared to give up an arm and a leg to get 'em.

    So yes Princeton, if Toronto dangles Halladay or Florida dangles Willis, I would certainly consider moving one of the aforementioned 'untouchables'.
