    Beneitez to Cincy?

    From Today's Rotoworld player news section.

    The Marlins and Reds are reportedly among the teams interested in Benitez, who has thrown four scoreless innings this spring. According to the newspaper, ownership would like to see Benitez traded, but the front office is more inclined to keep him.

    I can see Deno for Benitez happening.

    I have always felt that Benitez had "confidence" issues. The Reds have plenty of those guys on their 40 man roster. They could have kept Standridge if they needed a Benitez.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    I remember his days with the O's--I don't want to relive them. I'd much rather go with the committee until Everyday Eddie is back.

    People would feel better with Hermanson and/or Guardado than they would Benitez?

    Benitez may be nothing special, and he may not be any better than those two...but the hyperbole that gets thrown around everytime a potential deal is mentioned is downright ridiculous at times. Neither Hermanson, Guardado OR Benitez is the answer to our stud closer question. I'm not excited about any of them, and I certainly don't feel strongly enough to campaign for one over the others.

    If they take Stanton and Cormier, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

    Re: Beneitez to Cincy?

    all depends on how hard Benitez is throwing. If he is throwing 95, I would take a chance. If he is way down on velocity like Hermanson(84-85 on Saturday), then I'd pass.

    I can't see how he'd be any worse than Stanton, Hermanson and/or Weathers. Then again, he may not be any better either.

    Honestly, I'm not keen on a "hard-throwing" heady pitcher or a soft-tosser.

    I'd rather split duties between Coffey and Bray right now. Those two have the best stuff/upside.

    If the question is "Benitez or Hermanson," the answer is Benitez every time.

    Of course, it doesn't bode well that the Reds are actually asking that question. It's kind of like asking, "Death by drowning, or death by suffocation?"
