    Pitchers the Reds should look to acquire.

    Carlos Silva
    Victor Santos
    Salomon Torres
    Geoff Geary
    Joaquin Benoit
    Elmer Dessens
    Brandon Medders
    Jesse Crain
    Doug Waechter
    Brandon Duckworth

    These are a few names that I'd ponder. All these players could be had for little to nothing. What they all have in common is that they have had bad luck coupled with the fact that they play for teams with defenses actually worse than our own, which means that they should almost certainly improve some.

    he makes Jimmy Anderson look like Nolan Ryan.

    less than 4 career K/9 and a paltry 461 SLG against....he's also not even as big a groundball pitcher as Orca was.

    The Reds always have Joe Mays in AAA if they need another pitcher.

    I don't think Crain and Benoit could be had for little to nothing.

    As for Silva.. still don't like him ever since he threw at Kearns and Dunn was on first and Dunn started heading to the mound.

    There are reasons why pitchers are available in August.

    Just sayin'.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    I thought he threw at Dunn, and when Dunn charged the mound the catcher tackled him before he could get there, and then Silva hit him with a couple of cheap shots while he was down. After that, Casey blind-sided Silva from first base.

    But I thought there was a laundry list of great young pitchers that were available for next to nothing? Where did they all go?
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    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

    Yep, not only did he take some cheat shots at Dunn, he missed.

    He's a weenie.

    Klu.. I think your right.. I recall Kearns being involved though.
