    Reminds me a lot of another great Philly star that this team missed out on due to being cheap. It is the kind of small-minded thinking that I wish would go away for this team.

    Make the deal, make the playoffs, and bring the fans back with winning baseball. Then, suddenly, budgets become a lot less constricting.

    You know, ever since I started reading the internet I would see people criticizing others for misspellings or improper grammer or some other crime. Usually the people doing the critcizing misspelled something in their post. Moral of the story: People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

    Also, this is not English class. If you have a problem with the way someone else posts, take it private cause most of us do not care.

    Of course, Miltie already ran out his welcome in Philly, didn't he?
    I don't think anyone would take Milton.

    With Leiber making 7 million next year, and Abreu making 13.5 this year (and probably around that much next year), it is a lot of salary to take on.

    However, that might drive down the cost in prospects. Maybe Cast will bite the bullet for 2007, realizing that Milton's salary rolls off the books then.

    I've only read about the Millage-Abreau rumor. That does set the price a bit on the high side. It would probably take at least one of our crown jewels in AA to make this deal, but I think it's worth it if the team truly wants to win this year. Both Abreau and Lieber should be contributors for awhile.

    if i could say one more thing on this.i am a songwriter , and playwriter as well as reds fan.if you read my songs, plays etc that are handwritten ,you would find very very few flaws.i am "not" a good typist.i can barely type 2 words without messing up so i have others do my typing. on here ....i naturally do it. it goes something like this as far as sound: peck peck peck.
    so many times i dont bother hitting the caps button because i have enough trouble hitting the letter buttons.there was basically no internet when i was in school and typing was not a big class to take.this may be the reason others as well as I , dont use caps as the beginning of every sentence.

    as far as "biting the bullet",which i still have a copy of that statement;i didnt know if he was referring to
    1 renting a player (zito type)
    2 getting player under contract (tejada type)

    I'm just trying to stay on the same pace as Milton and the number of quality starts per millions of dollars he's making...although after today's flurry of posts (3), I'm gonna have to now take a few months off

    Hi, everyone. I just found out about this site via the Reds' Usenet group. I've been a poster there for years and thought I'd sign up over here as well.

    On the topic of getting Abreu and Lieber from Philadelphia, I don't think that deal helps the Reds much at all.

    Even with the Kearns/Lopez departures and Griffey's going in the tank lately, the team is still third or fourth in NL runs scored. You can never have too much offense, but I would rate that need far behind improvements to both starting and relief pitching. I would certainly be glad to have a player like Abreu in right field, but not for what it would cost to get him and definitely not what it would cost to keep him. If acquired, the 2007 Reds outfield salary would come in around $38 million (with some of Griffey's deferred). If the options for both Dunn and Abreu would be picked up for 2008, the outfield cost goes up over $40 million and also forces the team to keep Jay Bruce in the minor leagues at least until 2009 (not that he'd be ready yet, but...). Too much investment for an already effective offensive that already stands to improve with age the next couple of seasons.

    On the matter of Lieber... yuck. He's acquirable, sure, but that's because he's been about as effective as Eric Milton has been. He's managed an ERA over 5.50 so far this year and opponents are hitting close to .300 against him, all atop of missing a month due to injury. That's not an arm that will help carry the 2006 Reds into the postseason, and certainly not one worth paying millions for. I'd rather WK hold onto his cash until the winter and look for a pitcher worth spending the money on.

    I have no fear ownership will pony up $$ if a deal is there to be made. I have more fear at this point that the kind of player we want to add to this team is not on the market. That said, Krivsky will do something else to help these guys IMO, especially if Germano has a bad start Saturday.

    Re: mr castellini's comments

    Yeah, I think we have to be realistic on what is out there.

    Abreu and Lieber would be a bad acquistion. Abreu gets $15 mil next year and having $35 mil tied up in the outfield next year would not help us. Take that money and put it to pitching and a SS.

    Castellini has already shown money was not an issue when he dumped Womack and Dave Williams. We got lucky the Mets took Williams off our hands but he is willing. But do not chase bad trades.

    If the Reds were going to chase offense, they should go after Tejada or maybe Orlando Cabrera if Tejada is traded there. Cabrera is decent offensively and can pick it at SS.

    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.

    I don't think its a situation where adding payroll is necessarily the problem. I think that could be done within reason. The problem is you don't want to completely mortgage your future for 1 season. Sure, a trade here or there that makes since for now and may cost you a little in the long run, maybe you do it.
    The problem is with this year is that there are more buyers than sellers, which is going to drive up what it takes to get those players you need for the stretch run. Unlike some teams the Reds count on their farm system to bring up talent. If the Yankees had Homer Bailey and they could trade him now for a Willis, I think they do it. The Reds just cannot afford to do that. Heck, do they Reds have enough money to sign a player like Willis long term anyway?? With Bailey they will have him for a few years before he is ready to make the big contract if he turns out to be the real deal.
    I'm East of you. Be very very worried. Not quite OBX. But, be worried.

    First, ya gotta find 'em.

    After ya find 'em, ya gotta be able to make a deal that doesn't disrupt what's working for the team and that doesn't break the farm by giving up the future.
