    Lance is saying Brad Key (I think) and Javon Moran as the minor leaguers.

    Most of us, ok, some of us, are more discriminating than to be happy with "any move."

    Conine's a decent spare part to have on the bench; he can play 1B, 3B or OF. He's not any better against LH pitching (than against RH). I hope he's not going to be the 1B against LH'ers, but I think he is.

    All in all, a lesser player than Aurila has been the last 2 years, if he's the "Aurilia replacement."

    Interesting that the Phils wanted him back. Or maybe not.

    A guy who hits for a decent average, doesn't strike out much and is so old that he was once Bob Boone's teammate.

    Well, I came to Redszone today looking to see if Krivsky was going to make a move, and for all of them for him to make... I really am dissappointed. He didn't trade much away, but I would have liked for him to do something different. We ought to have enough veterans next year, I don't think that's necessarily a good thing, though.

    The amount of money that will be spent on Weathers, Conine, Lohse, Cormier, Stanton and Gonzalez is amazing.

    Throw in Griffey and Milton and it's embarassing.

    I think they passed them a while ago.

    Let's raise a toast to Mr. Conine, the newest -- AND oldest -- member of the Cincinnati Reds.

    Update from Marcs blog:

    UPDATE: The Reds sent infielder Brad Key and outfielder Javon Moran to the Phillies for Conine. Brendan Harris was designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster

    Maybe he can play Centerfield due to "Seniority" over Griffey?

    It's pretty hard to put a happy face on this one.

    Not that key and Moran figured to ever see time on the 25 roster.

    It's just hard to see how using a roster spot on Jeff Conine is a good idea.

    Something will have to open up a spot on the 40 man roster, so that may be more talent pissed away.

    I guess he's not going to be good enough that they'll be tempted to give him a full time corner outfield job, so that makes it more likely that they'll move junior.

    I guess they can say he's an allstar that won a couple of world series.

    I guess he'll be "happy" in the role he's given and won't create a stink.

    Tough to paint this one as a positive.

    That "something" was Brendan Harris (of "the trade" fame), who was DFA'd.
