    Iz makes $3.2M, LaRue makes $3.9M

    We need to trade Clayton also. Clayton makes $1M.

    For Clayton/Castro, there would be no takers. $1M is chump change in this day.

    My only hope is that he's stockpiling bullpen arms with the intent to add them to deals.

    Not bloody likely, but still an interesting thought.

    Reds still need a SS and a LH bat off the bench. That was so apparent yesterday in the 9th. Sure would have been nice to send up a Matt Stairs.

    Release Clayton, retain Castro as the backup infielder?

    Adding a SS would be very nice. We could use a lefty off the bench, but that would be secondary behind a solid SS.

    Adding a good shortstop would be great. I still think Aurillia may be traded, which opens the door for Encarnacion full time. I think moving Larue would be a good move as well. Could be a real interesting day. I hope Krivsky isn't done.

    Another possibility; Claussen traded?

    What could Claussen and LaRue and Clayton bring in a starter?

    On a side note, I've read somewhere that Kip Wells is available.

    I could see Claussen being moved. Wayne has got some leverage now with maybe moving 1 reliever.

    The Mets have reportedly discussed a deal where they would receive Roberto Hernandez and Kip Wells from the Pirates.

    In exchange for Hernandez and Wells the Mets would give up Heath Bell, Anderson Hernandez and Double-A reliever Matt Lindstrom. Hernandez would immediately give the Mets' bullpen a boost while Wells would give the rotation insurance in case aging-starters Pedro Martinez or Tom Glavine need to spend time on the disabled list in the final months of the season.

    Special K haas shown that he is not to make a splash...I would not be surprised to see anyone on the Reds traded anywhere to address a need.

    I don't think you can trade players on the DL.

    Yes, you can. It's just that most people don't.

    You actually can. PTBNL is what you would use.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    I really can't see them bringing in a SS.

    They're putting the eggs in the Castro/Clayton basket until next season.
