    Who do the Reds acquire?

    Bet your rep points according to the odds posted above. I'll play is fairly safe and put 40 on Rodrigo Lopez.

    Hopefully nobody, unless it means giving up nothing to get something. With the market the way it is, I would focus on what you might be able to give up (i.e. veteran) for a number of high potential, high success probability.

    I would put my money on Corey Lidle before any of the others.

    Rodrigo Lopez--feels like a lead-pipe cinch to me. The guy screams Krivsky, low Ks, way past his "effective years," vet, gopher-ball prone.

    First pick "nobody", second pick Lopez.

    Re: Who do the Reds acquire?

    I thought that Robert H. Castellini said or implied that if the Reds were in contention that he would make a genuine effort to obtain what might be necessary to win now or to keep the Reds in contention? Please correct me if I am wrong or read more into his comments after buying the team. But I am wondering where his strong play is now that the trading deadline is fast approaching, and while the Reds are still in contention.

    Put your money (or rep points) where your mouth is, everybody. Let's risk some rep!

    I wish that you would have put someone over 35 in that poll, too much of a lock I guess.

    I gambled big and went with Smoltz, only on the basis that Smoltz is proven effective as a starter and a closer.

    I say Smoltz stays in Atlanta.

    Since it looks as though they'll get in the WC hunt, it's starting to look as though that could be the case.

    Someone else.....

    Often times, we're caught off guard on here by the player(s) the Reds acquire. This time will be no different.
