    Sports Talk Rumor

    A unrelated Reds rumor but one that gave me quite a chuckle. It seems Toronto was looking to add a starter to it's rotation. The Jays inquired about Leiber from the Phillies. The Phils said Leiber could be available but they wanted Alex Rios in return. I almost swerved into oncoming traffic when I heard that. Maybe the Jays would take Milton for Rios.

    The day the Reds get Alex Rios from the Toronto Blue Jays for Eric Milton is the day the 7th level of Hell freezes over.

    Milton to Toronto for a case of Molson, a bag of milk, 2 cups of Tim Horton's coffee and a Wayne Gretzky 8x10.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    I'd take the Timmy Ho's coffee by itself.

    Rios is going nowhere...he had 82 RBIs in 450 AB, hit .302, 17 HR, and 15 SB. They say he is a guy that could explode this year.

    Sounds like what people were saying about Austin Kearns after his rookie season. They are still waiting for that explosion.

    If Kearns could steal 15 bases in 450 AB, that would be something. Rios got hurt last year, but he has a history (albeit brief) of staying healthy. Rios is in Leatherpants terms, "a five tool player." We all know how those players often turn out.

    The injury he had was an odd one too. Hit by a pitch and the seam from the ball made a small cut, which turned into what IIRC was a staph infection.

    How about Milton for old pal Royce Clayton?

    I can't wait to see some of the heads exploding over that one.

    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

    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    I would drive Uncle Milty to Toronto in my car (I would even pay for gas).

    One problem... the Canadian authorities. They'd figure out who was with you in the car at the border/checkpoint and make you turn it around and go back to the United States (more specifically, Cincinnati). Even having a fake ID for Eric might not do it.

    Do you have anything to declare, sir? Fruits, vegetables, currency, left-handed pitchers with a propensity to give up the long ball?
