    I can't wait for Wayne to tell us about the market for pitchers with ERAs over 7.

    To me the interesting part is how Lohse is being planned on being used, as a starter or reliever.

    Does this make Shackleford go back to AAA? Watson's already been sent packing.

    LaRue is still here, I thought he was going to be traded before the 4 o'clock deadline. Wonder what SS he'll go for.

    The Pirates appear ready to make some minor deals, though sources tell me that Jack Wilson all but demanded to be traded over the weekend.

    And people questioning the move to sign him

    He should fit in pretty well around here.

    Let's give him a nickname..... I nominate "Cannon Fodder"
    I'm assuming Krivsky does not have one of the t's hanging in his closet? Or, at least he will have to get rid of it now. Of course, now that he's with the Reds, we can throw out "change of scenery," "realize his potential," "Wayne must see something or he wouldn't have traded for him," etc. and so forth

    Don't think for a minute that Lohse will be used out of the pen.

    I wonder if Terry Ryan was laughing on the phone.

    I think the current situation at SS for the Reds is the only thing that could ever make me think that I might like a trade for Jack Wilson. At least its true that he can field. Any comments I made earlier about Clayton's D were based on a misinformed opinion.

    Considering that dealing Lohse for an A-baller proves his detractors point, I doubt it.

    True, but considering how Bronson has pitched it's a pretty difficult argument to make to say we shoul dhave gotten *more* than him for Wily Mo. When did Wily Mo suddenly morph into Ted Williams?

    Wilson can't hit, but at least is the bona fide great defender Krivsky claimed we were getting in Clayton (retch).

    It would be hilarious if Krivsky actively went out and traded for three guys who can't manage a .300 on-base percentage between them and play the same position in less than three months.

    And by "hilarious," I mean, kind of pathetic.

    I think this says alot. Also, the longer a coresponding roster moves goes, the better the chances that Wayne isn't done would be, I would think.

    If Lohse is going to be in the rotation, we're done for the day. If he's in the pen, I think we're still shopping.

    Also, if a coresponding roster move is announced relatively quickly then I think he's done but if not, there's still a chance for more.

    If only all of our pitchers could return to such a rate.

    If Larue brings a SS, what happens to Castro/Clayton. Would the Reds carry all three on the roster?

    Don't know if it's worth reading in to, but the headline on the Reds official website says "Reds bolster PEN with 2 arms".
    Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!
