    Reds Trade For Conine

    According to Marc's blog, Reds have traded two minor leaguers for Jeff Conine. More info to come.

    Maybe it's the start of more moves to come.

    If the minor leaguers happen to be Votto or Bailey, EFFING kill me.

    Something doesnt seem right with this trade.

    You guys actually going to pay to see these types of players play in 07 ?

    Castellini raises ticket prices to see his performers and this is what he offers the fans?

    Moeller, Hamilton, Livingston, Crosby, Conine Who will be the Reds MVP !

    Why do the Reds need a 40-yr-old slap hitting 1st baseman. Yes, people want moves. But they want moves that will improve the team.

    Why trade for a guy that is on the far side of effective, when there are at least two FA options that are much, much better (Wilson, Craig; Perez, Eduardo).

    Your problems here are well noted but you don't know if this is pinch hitting help instead of a potential backup first basemen.

    Everyone is begging for a move to IMPROVE the team.

    We seriously are becoming the Giants of the East.

    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

    Everyone begs for *good* moves. They are disgusted with *bad* moves.

    Wouldn't it be fair to not judge a move "good" or "bad" until after it plays out?

    With that.....I don't think it's a bad move per se, but there are more pressing needs at the moment.

    Re: Reds Trade For Conine

    Concerning wilson , we know hatteberg is gonna play vs the righties and the NL isnt loaded with many lefties.
    So my guess is wilson wouldnt come here for the same reason aurilia wanted to leave.....more playing time.
    Aurilia started several games at 2nd, ss ,3rd and first.
    Wilson would be at 1st with an occasional OF start !(unless injury)

    It is not always a matter of whether the move was “good” or “bad” but whether the move was adequate enough to upgrade the team to a winning status from a history of losing. The question should be, do these moves make the Reds a winner, can they now win more games than they lose?
