    I'd drop the 50-1 on Smoltz. The Braves are back. Smoltz moves to OFF.

    If Livan Hernandez wasn't a National, I'd probably would have seen him a Red.

    I'll put 50 on Redman. For Jason LaRue and a minor leaguer.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Rodrigo Lopez...owner of a 6.57 ERA and 1.63 WHIP. Or Kyle Lohse...sporting a 7.12 ERA and 1.66 WHIP. How would either of these two help the Reds at all?

    They wouldn't.

    Which means Wayne's got a yen for both.

    FCB, do you really think Krivsky is Satan for the Reds organization?

    I think the roster and the team as it's currently being deployed is a mess. Now does that incriminate Narron in the equation as well? Yes. But Wayne's the puppetmaster and this team is set up for a monumental collapse without big time changes occurring.

    Doom and gloom. Always, doom and gloom, and who cares if you can someday say, "I told you so." You wouldn't enjoy it.

    Yeah. Surely it's just doom and gloom. It wouldn't be an honest assessment on my part.

    Probably is your honest assessment, FCB.

    I don't think they would.

    This is not "who should the Reds acquire," though. It's "who will they acquire." Odds are, if they make a move, it will be someone like Lohse, Redman, or Lopez.

    Then they are better off doing nothing.

    Will be very interesting to see what Krivsky does, or doesn't do. I think it will be very telling.
