    Bengals have raised the bar for us... I do believe that we could sneak him through

    Maybe another Mays hammering would change his mind.

    I'm betting (hoping) Krivsky makes a move before Mays makes another start. I like the idea of dealing a young first baseman for starting pitching. Pitching is hard to come by, first basemen...uh, not so much.

    Does anyone have access to Bill James' appraisal of Votto? If I recall, he wasn't too high on his long swing.

    Hey, I nose around here quite a bit...

    But seriously, I haven't heard a word, which is not all that uncommon with this FO.

    Also, and I don't think this is necessarily a new trend, but it seems the media is really driving itself this trade season. One guy drops a dream in a daily notebook...next thing you know it gets a mention by the announcers during the game followed by a full story by the original reporter claiming the rumor has legs because it was mentioned on the air.

    Krivsky will not sacrifice the future for the present. He's proven that in the type of moves he's made. His first goal is to improve the depth and overall quality of the organization first, and his second goal is to win this year.

    He's not, and won't be this year, in the market for anyone who's "hot now", in other words, a big name player.

    Anyone he goes after will be of the type that he's already obtained.

    I think that was my point.

    That's an interesting take on things hot on the heels of one of the more controversial Reds trades in recent history.

    He's not, and won't be this year, in the market for anyone who's "hot now".
    Gary Majewski?

    I know that I'd give a LOT for Barry Zito and for Zito to ink a new 5 year deal

    You and every large market team. I doubt very much the A's will trade him at the trading deadline. For the Reds, that would probably mean giving up Homer Bailey.

    Plus with all those innings Zito has pitched, is going five years a wise thing to do?
    If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.
