    Question about the Majewski deal...

    According to Marc's blog, the Reds are going to file a grievance over the unhealthy status of Gary Majewski before and after the trade with Washington.

    The blog offers the chance that the Reds would ask for another player, but Wayne K also says "there are other remedies."

    What other remedies might be out there? Void the trade? Would you even want that?

    How would you like to see MLB square things up with the Reds?

    1. Ban Bowden from wearing leather pants ever again.

    2. Tell Bowden he was a bad boy, and make him sit in the corner.

    3. Offer Cincinnati a draft pick as compensation via Washington.

    They asked about that today. Wayne said that he doesn't feel they were dealt with fairly by the Nats and they are pursuing their case and it's possible this will be out of their hands soon.

    The return of Majewskigate!

    rotoworld reports: (as per the cincy post)

    ****Reds GM Wayne Krivsky said his club will file a grievance that claims the Nationals misled them about Gary Majewski's health before including him an eight-player deal in July.*****

    "We don’t feel like we were dealt with fairly, and you can go to the bank that we’re not going to take it sitting down," Krivsky said. The Reds knew Majewski had shoulder issues before they dealt for him, and unless there's some real damage in his shoulder that they've yet to disclose, it figures to be tough to win a grievance. When Majewski went on the DL in August, his problem was described as inflammation, and he was able to resume pitching within three weeks.

    It matters because the Sox didn't the dispute the matter--they just sent along Sanchez to make the situation go away.

    Bowden will fight it tooth and nail: and he'll win.

    I think there will be some remedy, but nothing that really matters.

    But they got YOUR favorite pitcher for giving up Sanchez and returning Mike Gonzalez. Seems like that should have been more than fair.
