    Re: Kyle Lohse is a Red

    Would it be safe to assume that Ward was one of the organization's (already thin) top 10 prospects?

    Re: Kyle Lohse is a Red

    BP had this to say about Lohse... prior to this season in their annual.

    "Not a stathead's type of pitcher, but not everybody can crank out a Quality Starts half the time, and if that's your 4th or 5th starter then you have something."
    I wonder what the spin will be on this acqusition?

    With the stink from this year his stock has dropped like pets.com, in 4 starts in AAA he is 2-1 with a 1.50 ERA and 2 complete games.

    Boy I hope so.

    Re: Kyle Lohse is a Red

    I think Wayne has done a good job, but I think another move has to be made. If Cormier and Lohse are both put in the bullpen and then he turns around and trades Majewski to someone like the Royals to get Mark Redman (to use as their 5th starter) and some prospects, I would have to think we'd be much improved. With Lohse in the 5th starter spot and only Cormier added to the bullpen, I'd be concerned.

    What's really cool is thinking about what the Reds will look like in 5 or 6 years.

    Joe Mauer will be behind the plate, Justin Morneau will be at first, Torii Hunter will be in center, and the rotation will be anchored by Francisco Liriano and Johann Santana.

    That'll be sweet.

    Re: Kyle Lohse is a Red

    Cormier became the twelfth member of the pitching staff. Lohse is number 13. I'm thinking Standridge is likely the odd man out here, and that's a shame, because against RH hitters he's been flat out dominating this year. He should never see a LH hitter though. Shack is the same but just the opposite.

    So what it really comes down to is the pen needed upgrading because Narron doesn't know how to use the parts he has. Great.

    I could live with him in the BP if it meant that Weathers was leaving

    Keep those numbers looking good in low A.
    For Lohse, I'm not sure it would have mattered if he got pounded in High A. Lohse's ERA makes DWill look like a star.

    they'd have kept him if cheap, but given his contract would need to nontender him at the end of this season. As we might also

    Don't bet on it. Krivsky only seems interested in acquiring the crappy Twins.

    Do we have any space on our roster for Al Newman?

    Well, his k/9 this year has gone up to 6.50. Of course all the rest of his numbers are lousy.

    I know nothing about him except he seems to be incredibly overpaid for his numbers, and he pronounces his name funny.
