I wake up this morning and run to the computer to see what the latest rumors/deals are and the names Maddux, Schmidt, Zito, Oswalt and Marquis are being thrown around right now. No mention of the Reds anywhere. Hell, even the Marlins are interested in Soriano. Didn't Castellini say that he would be fine with adding payroll if they were in it? Didn't he say he wanted to win more than anything?
Now don't get me wrong, I don't want to see Wayne mortgage the future for 2 months of Zito, or something like that. But I would like to see something here. Some mention like "The Reds contacted the Giants regarding Schmidt, but their asking price of Bailey and another prospect was too high." If they go and get Redman or someone like that, this will be a real bust of a deadline and not the best way to start a new era in Cincy.
I saw another post somewhere saying, "Isn't it better to be buyers rather than sellers this year?" But are they really buyers yet?
Here's hoping for the best today!
