    Bowden shopping John Patterson and Nick Johnson

    Reportedly, JimBo is looking to move one or both of Patterson and Johnson for outfield help. I know trading with JimBo is always a questionable move, but if Patterson's healthy, I believe he'd really shore up the Reds' pitching staff. Short of moving Dunn, do you see any way the Reds and Nats have a match that would benefit both teams?

    I get the feeling after Majewskigate you will never see Wayne trade with JimBo again.

    Which is dumb. Because, ultimately, it wasn't Bowden's fault what happened.

    I never said it was right, just that I doubt Wayne will trade with him.

    I would love to have John Patterson. That's who the Reds should have demanded in return for Kearns/Lopez.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    What about offering Freel with a reliever and/or a prospect for Patterson

    How much does Patterson make? Would Freel and Cormier offset the money?

    I'd rather have Nick Johnson as an everyday 1B than Patterson in our rotation.

    But maybe that's just me.

    if Bowden is looking to move Patterson you can bet there are health issues. His track record pretty much tells you he has trouble staying healthy, same thing with Johnson.

    It isn't just you.

    The guy's a monster and it's a shame Bowden doesn't realize it.

    He's Larry Bowa's nephew. If he can stay healthy, he's a stud.

    God, I adore Nick Johnson, he's one of my favorite players in the world, and criminally underrated. If we had a platoon of Hatteberg/Johnson I'd sell my soul for season tickets.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Keep your soul and just let Johnson play. Hat would be a good PH.
