    Milton to Yankees?

    Some of you may have just heard a caller to Sunday Morning Sports Talk regarding Eric Milton. She mentioned how the Yanks are down three pitchers right now and a good outing by Milton may intrigue The Boss. Good call and good point.

    She also asked, "What's worse, having 3 catchers on the roster or having 2 DH's in the outfield?" What a great call!
    As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

    He may intrigue The Boss but Cashman isn't that dumb. Milton has zero trade value.

    Milton doesn't have zero trade value, he has a negative trade value meaning to get anyone to take him we'd have to package him with someone good to get rid of him.

    Considering this is the last year of his contract our only move to get rid of him would be to DFA him. I see Homer has given up one run in each of his first two starts, I don't see Milty making it past May.

    Re: Milton to Yankees?

    I used to be a supporter of put Milton out there to up his value but now that I sit down and factor that he will never obtain even a PTBNL. I agree with UC_Ken.. Milton won't be a starter come May. Especially if Homer is putting up number like he is.

    However.. I do noticed that Milton does throw a decent one to three innings. So when they think Bailey is ready and they can continue to skip Miltons start, I'd like to see them but the 9 million dollar man in the pen. Heck plug Saarloos in the rotation for now.

    It's funny because the Yankees wanted Milton, and we outbid them for his services.

    I have to agree with the earlier posts, he has negative value and we would have to pay his entire salary just to get rid of him.

    Pay his contract and accept nothing back and I still think we have trouble moving him.

    If I were the Reds I would pay his salary and let him pitch for the Yankees.

    Pavano signed with the Yankees before Milton signed with Cincinnati.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    If the caller is referring to Adam Dunn, I beg to differ (especially this year so far) for reasons that have been hashed and rehashed.

    If the Reds would be better off with a pitcher who's now in AAA on their roster than they would be with Milton, it seems to me like the Yankees would have a similar situation.

    I'dd take some equal lame duck acquisition from the Yankees to get rid of Milton, like a player who will be on the DL most of the year getting paid a crapload - but less than Milton - or an overpaid againg player.
