    Larue traded to the Royals

    It's a rumor flying around here....Lance, Seg, myself and anybody else who has the time are trying to confirm it.

    We've recieved several emails about it....so there may be something to it....

    Nothing from the Reds front

    I don't even care about the return.

    Re: Larue to the Royals?

    I hope not. My attendance drops dramatically when the wife doesn't get to see LaRue.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I disagree. The Royals have nothing I want.

    Except for salary relief, and relief from the three catcher fiasco.

    Things could get purty interesting around here today.

    Re: Larue to the Royals?

    This would be fine with me. Don't even really care about the return - although I would imagine LaRue has some value to some team out there.

    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    You don't just give a guy like Larue away when you have virtually no trading chips left with which to deal.

    They gain more by ridding themselves of Larue.

    This could free up the jack it might take to bring in someone of value. They needn't be hanging on to highly paid, aging catchers.

    I say this, and I like Larue a lot.

    It just makes sense to me to deal him.

    Who knows, they might even get a prospect out of it.

    I agree. I care about the return, because, to be honest, we don't have a lot of trading chips to give up. We pretty much need a good return on every trade we make this winter, or we're going backwards.

    I agree. I really think LaRue has some value - the key is abstacting that value from a GM. LaRue is on the wrong side of 30 for a catcher, so who knows. But his proven track record and relative lack of playing time last year (suggesting some tread left on the tires) is the carrot. Now hopefully Krivsky can dangle it to the right people.

    Yep, with Larue's age I'm willing to take about anything for him at this point.

    Frees up a roster spot and cash.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.
