    at least we didn't trade for one. safe to say the chance of RA coming back is nil.

    Looks like we got our guy. Now where does wayne K go? trade dunn? or do we sign one of the overpriced 2nd tier pitchers ? None of those guys are Ground ball pitchers are they?

    This organization just continues to get dumber and dumber. Just when you thought it couldn't get worse, it does. .299 OBP last year for Gonzalez. Awful. And you just know Narron will bat him second.

    Wayne Krivsky has managed to turn this team from a offensive juggernaut to one of the worst hitting teams in baseball in less than a year. Impressive.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Padilla is. Last time I looked his GB/FB ratio was around 1.1 I think.

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Bring in a big bat for RF and/or CF (depending on what the team wants to do with Griffey) and you still have a good potential for a lineup... maybe not the offensive juggernaut we are use to but few teams are able to match what the reds have had the last few years.

    This is a nice move, gonzalez really helps the defense. We need one more SP, and OF I think bray can be our closer. So the question is do we sign free agents or can we fill both those holes by trading dunn.

    According to ESPN.com Vincente Padilla has a career GB/FB ratio of 1.45. Last 5 years look like this:

    (yr: Team GB/FB ERA Rec.
    2006: Texas 1.17 4.50 15-10 33GS 200 IP
    2005: Philadelphia 1.25 4.71 9-12 27GS 147 IP
    2004: Philadelphia 1.25 4.53 7-7 20GS 115.1 IP (I think he might have been injured a large portion of the year and tried to pitch through it early)
    2003: Philadelphia 1.32 3.62 14-12 32GS 208.2 IP
    2002: Philadelphia 1.98 3.28 14-11 32GS 206.0 IP

    Has experience playing in band boxes, seems to do a good job of making people hit it on the ground. With our defense as its shaping up its worth the risk.
