    And Jon Lieber in the rotation? He's not the best, but dang.. he's no Joe Mays. Sign me up for this deal, especially if its going to cost Denorfia, Germano, and taking on cash.

    Where the heck do I sign up? Now just get me a new SS or 2B Krivs, and you've done well for yourself this year. VERY well. How can we add Jimmy Rollins to the deal? :

    Nothing is wrong with Abreu aside from his power taking a bit of a vacation. He's still getting on base at a .429 clip. A LIFETIME OBP of .412 - 90 walks, 60 RBI. .280 hitter with a history of hitting closer to .300. Call me crazy, but I think Abreu is a pretty big name hitter.
    I agree and would love to see BC/Kriv get wild and bring Abreu to town. Install him in RF. Move Freel to 2B, Philips to SS. Deno will have to tread some more water until Jr is moved from CF.

    I won't be calling anyone crazy on this board. Abreu would be a nice addition also. Players that can be counted on to produce for the next 3-4 years making a big impact on the field, in the attendance, and taking pressure off of Dunn, Griffey, the pitching, et el. until Krivsky can build up the minor league talent in the reasonable future.

    What would people be willing to give up to get Abreu (assuming a deal was possible)?

    Before someone is taught to spell, they are taught the skill of common courtesy and respect? "Poor spellers need not apply" isn't part of the Redszone credo. Is it therefore not acceptable to set those skills aside when dealing with our Redszone "community"? Back in the days before Redszone, it was common to bash those who couldn't spell, use correct grammar or clearly state a thought on the Reds board. We're better than that, aren't we?

    By the way, this isn't a shot at RBA, he is a Red Blooded American after all .

    Just my rant for the day on respect for others.
    Actually, I'm not correcting the person's spelling. And I'm not bashing his thoughts; am I? I'm 100 percent sure the original poster knows how to use basic grammar skills such as capititalization, but has chosen not to use it. Most likely because it's easier to type and has come to be acceptable on the internet.

    I think Lieber's contract for next year calls for $7M. Honestly, you'd think Krivsky would look for a F.A. pitcher this winter anyway, and I doubt he's going to find too many that he could sign to a 1 yr deal for $7 w/ a team option year the 2nd year.

    I could live with Lieber being our #3 behind Arroyo and Harang.

    Not sure how long Abreu's deal goes, but I know it's for a crap load of money. That would be hard for us to swallow. Abreu, Dunn, Griffey and Milton on this payroll. Yikes. That'd mean no money for Harang, Phillips, Ross, or Edwin going foward.

    Maybe if we could get PHIL to take LaRue along with Denorfia, Germano and Dumatrait for those two, we'd be ok for this year. But going forward we'd be still pretty tight for cash...

    This is not the place for a grammar debate (take it to Off-Topic if you like), and some of you engaging in such would be well-advised to mind your tongue - no amount of proper grammar makes up for being a rude git.

    This post gave me a very negative feeling, until you added

    Our biggest needs right now are a starting pitcher and a middle infielder. I'd love to get Betemit from the Braves to take care of the middle infield, but I just don't see any starting pitching out there that's worth making a deal.

    Tough but realistic question. I would think that Krivsky would have to use his resources to build up the teams pitching first, so that might make the desire for a big name bat that produces now an impossibility.

    Very true. I started to reply that he could make this deal now and worry about pitching in the offseason but that is a butt load of sallary to take on, even if BC opens the pocket book and we unload LaRue.

    Dare to dream, I suppose.

    Re: mr castellini's comments

    Would a deal of LaRue, Denorfia, Votto, Germano, Shafer, and Milton work for Abreu and Leiber?

    Reds add $10 million in payroll for 2007, remember, to the deal.

    Of course, Miltie already ran out his welcome in Philly, didn't he?

    Yeah, I don't think Milton would be too good of a bet to return to Philadelphia.

    Only realistic way we could take on Abreu is if we traded Jr and LaRue in that deal.
