    Will the Reds make a trade today?

    I hope the Reds do make a trade today, but I'm not so sure it's going to happen.

    I could see us picking up Redman, Leiber, or another SP that would only cost 2 marginal prospects. Yet, I see other teams probably willing to pay more than us (in terms of prospects) and being more aggressive. So, I am going to vote "no", in hopes of being wrong. I'd love to get a guy (even like Redman) because with Claussen's health questionable, and Gernamo not being the answer, we really need a body in the #5 slot.

    It's going to be fun to see how the Soriano sweepstakes pans out today as well.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I voted yes just because I would like to see us involved in something today that can help us out.

    I know for a fact that I won't get much done at work today reading up on trades up until 4.

    Dang it Joseph! You are on it! hahahahah

    I had just voted NO and refeshed when the news came across.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Wow, you must be psychic. It's too bad you didn't say it was a lefty, that would have been really impressive.

    That will prove over the next 6 hours to be the 17 million dollar question.

    LOL, well maybe we can change the poll to "will the Reds acquire a starting pitcher?"
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Re: Will the Reds make a trade today?

    Cormier is a solid pickup, however, starting pitching remains the biggest need. I hope Wayne isn't going to stand pat in that area just because Claussen had a decent outing at Louisville a few days ago.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    According to 1530, there is a 5:00 news conference.

    There has to be something else coming because if Wayne was done, he'd just announce it now AND Cormier by himself isn't worthy of a news conference.

    This might just be an interesting day afterall.

    Was there a presser for Eddie Guardado?

    I don't believe for him himself there was. There was a conference to go over all the moves that day and he was one of them.
