    Will Carroll: Reds going after Craig Wilson

    http://www.baseballprospectus.com/ar...articleid=5358

    First post
    You haven't seen Wayne Krivsky's Reds in many trade rumors this weekend. That's not to say the Reds aren't trying to make moves. They have one offer out on a player that would really signal a new era in Cincy, though it's unlikely to happen.
    And the follow up posted just a few minutes ago

    The name? Craig Wilson. At least three teams are in on him right now, but once again, the Pirates are asking for the moon. The Reds willingness to get in on a rental player signals that they're looking to win now, whether it's to catch the Cards or to hang on to the wild card. The team is now willing to take on some salary if that's what's needed, a big change from the old ownership. Wilson is hardly the only name that the Reds have looked into, although their focus is still on pitching.

    Maybe there will be a package of Wilson, Hernandez, and maybe Kip Wells or Oliver Perez. Denorfia could be going the other way, just a guess. Jack Wilson is also available and he can play short better than most, although he is expensive.

    Wayne must be out of his mind. I bet he would be the platoon mate of Hatteberg. RA should be starring in that role, but since Jerry thinks EdE is allergic to grass and clay, RA has to play 3rd at bat cleanup every game.

    This would be a stupid acquisition.

    Wilson would play right field if the Reds got him, IMO.

    A right-handed power hitter, which we currently have none. Wilson is a riddle wrapped in an enigma with the Pirates, who for some reason have decided that the poor guy should not only have to suit up for their pitiful franchise, but then bring in guys like Casey and Burnitz to keep him on the bench. And then when someone asks about him, they want top dollar for someone they clearly don't value. It's like he slept with Littlefield's teenage daughter and the propitiation is to sit the bench for a loser year after year.

    Will Carroll.....Get real! Throw 5,000 pounds of mud against the wall and maybe an ounce will stick.

    This acquisition would NOT signal a new era in Cincinnati. I don't know what Will Carroll is huffing, but this isn't one of those type pick ups.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Where does Freel go?

    Someone tell Wayne you can't platoon every spot.

    Hope this is just made up by a pirate fan.

    His power doesn't seem to be that much better then Aurilia's or EE's.

    I think Freel should play everyday, with that said, I don't believe Narron does. He's a "super-sub."

    OTOH, the Reds need a power bat from the right side. It's sounds legit to me. Edwin doesn't count because he's not aloud to play.
