    How many sore-armed pitchers are on the active roster right now?

    Yep. A low-K, high contact guy who benefitted from pitching in the cavern that is RFK. He was very BABIP lucky in '05 (.240) and his K/9 was only 5.23.

    You do wonder who in the Reds organizations looks at these stats prior to determining whom to acquire--and what they do with the knowledge they gain from them.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    sore arm - at least one
    sore butt - at least one
    sore knee - at least one and likely two

    Well, I doubt these PTBNLs we're giving up to get people like Schoeneweis are going to come back to haunt us. I'm probably stating the obvious, but by far the most dangerous deal was the Nationals one. None of the others particularly scare me in terms of talent/potential loss.

    Cormier has the sore butt, right? Everyday has a sore arm. Who's the other sore knee?

    Butt, hip... what is it really?

    Tall guy, I'm going with sciatica myself... which doesn't worry me in the long run, but it is an issue.

    other than the fact that said acquisition might actually make the team worse (which with an injured and ineffective SS seems like a very distinct possibility).

    I haven't read through this whole thread, but I will point out that a whoooole lot of teams are suffering from sore pitching staffs at this point. It's that time of the season. Now, granted, not all of these pitchers were just acquired, and that's certainly something that needs to be corrected with the Reds, but all of our infirm pitchers may be feeling better within a matter of months.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    as near as I can tell they won't be of much help at that point.

    Call me crazy but I'm thinking Wayne doesn't really care whether the guys he trades for are damaged goods or not. He evidently doesn't have the patience to do any research on the players he acquires as far as injuries go. While it may have been somewhat of a state secret that Majewski was hurting, it appears that Shoenweis' injury was common knowledge. If it wasn't why isn't Wayne calling shenanigans on the Jays? One thing this doesn't do is help Wayne's case against JimBo and the Nats. JimBo may have pulled a fast one on Wayne but this second trade makes it look like Wayne just goes after players obsessively. I wonder if Wayne had known every little detail about Majewski's injury if he still would have traded for him.

    Schoenweis -- As noted in the trade thread, this one was simply a waste of money and not a talent loss issue.

    Despite all his good moves, I would imagine a smart businessman like Castellini will be asking his GM at some point to start doing more background checks and explaining why he wasted $500K on 6-week rental fodder when the guy isn't apparently available to immediately help the team.
