    Gary Sheffield in RF in '07??

    with a crowded OF in New York the Yankees may be looking to dump one and Sheffield would be the one to go because he has a club option for '07 and Cashman will most likely not pick it up..

    and with that said we need to get rid of the cancer in LF...

    Orioles Get:
    Adam Dunn

    Reds Get:
    Adam Loewen
    cash

    Rotation:
    1. Jason Schmidt (via free agency)
    2. Aaron Harang
    3. Bronson Arroyo
    4. Adam Loewen (via trade see above)
    5. Kyle Lohse/Eric Milton/Homer Bailey/Elizardo Ramirez

    Bullpen:
    Kerry Wood CL (via free agency)
    David Weathers
    Todd Coffey
    Bill Bray
    Scott Shoeneweis
    Gary Majewski
    Matt Belisle/Jason Standridge

    Lineup:
    1. Luis Castillo 2B (via free agency)
    2. Brandon Phillips SS
    3. Ken Griffey Jr. CF
    4. Gary Sheffield RF (via free agency)
    5. Edwin Encarnacion 3B
    6. Scott Hatteberg/Joey Votto 1B
    7. Preston Wilson LF (via free agency)**
    8. David Ross C
    9. P
    **Alfonso Soriano or Carlos Lee would be nice but not enough money

    Bench:
    Javier Valentin C
    Ryan Freel UTIL
    Norris Hopper OF
    Todd Hollandsworth OF
    Juan Castro IF

    if that happens up there ^^^ hello PLAYOFFS!

    Switch Castro for Aurilla and you got a decent lineup.Aurilla will not be back and Wayne signed Castro to a 2 year deal.But over all your lineup and pitching satff look solid.

    yeah he is... he makes stupid comments in interviews, its obvious he doesnt give 100% everyday, he strikes out way too much, and his defense is well we all know about his defense.

    Wait, Adam Dunn is a cancer, and Gary Sheffield is what?

    He doesn't strike out as much so he's alright. Cancers are guys that strike out alot and play below-average defense.

    I don't like a lot of this but I will say that I would love to see Loewen pitching for the Reds. for the love of God, stay away from Kerry Wood, even in the bullpen.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    What? Wow, this is a new low on the RedsZone. Frankly, IMO, I think Adam needs the offseason to get his head clear. It's been a season fraught with all sorts of things going on. I appreciate Sheffield's talent, but I don't believe he fits our needs (just my opinion). I'll still take Dunn anyday. Not a cancer at all.

    what can it hurt to get wood as a closer.. no one else has worked.. with his stuff he would be unhittable and the amount of innings would give his arm a rest
