    Re: Zach Ward traded to Twins

    It's interesting that Wille023's prior postings have all been about Ward. Someone with a connection?
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Maybe Willie is really Wayne and is bouncing trades off of us to see how we'd feel about them?

    I tried a few and the only thing I can tell you is I can't find a good Twins message board. The few I saw mentioned nothing but they really didn't have many messages at all.

    Oh man I love it, everyone already hates the trade and it hasn't even been announced yet. Oh the hilarity...

    By the way, if it's true, I'll take it. What's that old addage that's said on here all the time? Something about you trade pitching prospects for Major League ready pitching any day? Well, last I checked Zach Ward hasn't won any games for the Reds this year.

    Guys you are going to have to trust me on this. This has 100% already happened. You can change the thread name if you wish, but that would not be wise. This is legit, literally just happened in the last hour. Ironically Zachs first start may be against Dayton. Talk about adrenaline!!!!!

    It is official this is Marc's blog:

    The Reds also have acquired right-hander Kyle Lohse from the Twins for minor league right-hander Zach Ward.

    Considering Lohse (who's making $3.95 million this year) already has been demoted to the minors for three weeks and then shunted off to the bullpen upon returning to the majors, I don't know that he's the ideal solution here. But you can't consider it a surprise, in the wake of the Joe Mays experiment.

    Well, if true, it sucks. Plain and simple. Wayne you are stupid for making this move and I'm greatly disappointed in you for losing Ward in exchange for Kyle Lohse, a player that he has to know the Twins WANTED to get rid of....

    Another awful trade by Krivsky. You trade a guy with great stuff like Ward for total crap like Lohse? Bring back Joe Mays!

    Krivsky is regressing to Dan O'Brien's level.

    Amazing what Desparation will do to a guy.

    Oh well, with Gernamo traded, we had to grab a body. Otherwise you risk that Claussen isn't 100%, and you don't have anybody to slot in the #5 slot.

    Re: Zach Ward traded to Twins

    Here's a comment from the Twins discussion board:

    Regarding this one - yes, we got a lot for Kyle. Of course, it is only potential though. But we have to keep in mind, regardless of how many of us feel about Kyle, he is a 27 year old pitcher with 50+ Major League wins and a sub 5 ERA. For someone looking for a 5th starter, that is fairly apealing.
    Just a thought.
