    Conine would have been a good pickup last year before they went with Hollandsworth. Not a bad move IMO as with Conine you basically know what you'll get.

    We're becoming a cheaper version of the SF Giants. At least their 40-yr.-olds can play.

    Conine can still hit lefties fairly well.

    There's the other half of the 1B platoon.

    Shall we call them "Hattenine" or "CoBerg"?

    So not only did we acquire a 41 year old 1st base platoon partner for Hatteberg, we gave up two prospects for him. Ah, I see.

    In all honesty, this isn't that big of a deal, IMO. He'll make a pretty good platoon partner with Hatteberg this year and they are both gone next offseason so Joey Votto can take over. I would have prefered the Reds targeting someone with upside (like Lance Niekro, that we had recently talked about). At least then they could have made a choice what to do. This is just a move to say, "hey we made a move, and we can be rid of both players at this time next year."

    P.S. I like CoBerg.

    Re: Reds pick up Conine

    You might also get two minor league prospects in a trade for Conine come July when a contender needs a veteran bat off the bench.

    It's another accessory.

    However, I think that if they were chasing Craig Wilson (which I get the opinion that they weren't) that would probably signal the end of it.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Here are his 2005 numbers v. RH pitching:

    .271 avg, .320 oba, .398 slg, .718 ops

    Wow, break out the happy snacks. The guy plays the game the right way and knows how to win...

    What are the #s vs LHP, since that's basically what he'll be facing next year....


    Wait, is this some sort of Marc Lancaster joke since he's leaving to go to Tampa. Marc, you almost got me. You can't PUNK me, Marc!

    FWIW, Lance is reporting that Javon Moran is one of the 2 prospects. I forget who the other name was. I liked Javon, but I imagine that he's expendable w/ Bruce, and Stubbs (who many here don't like, but I assume the front office still does) around for the future amongst others.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Javon Moran a player we got from the Phils organization? I guess they wanted him back

    To make room for Conine looks like the Reds DFA Brendon Harris
