I know Ross got two hits last night and looked a bit better at the plate. I hope he keeps it up. Still, the Reds have to get some offense from the catching spot, and both the second half of last year and this year's start have us all wondering whether Ross can really produce at an acceptable level. I also think the Reds have very little to trade on the 25 man roster. Lohse is possibly the most interesting talent we could afford to trade without hurting the ballclub too much. Moving Belisle to the #3 spot and adding either Dumatrait or Livingston until Homer can join the team later in the summer will hurt the rotation but the acquisition of a top catcher would offset that. Who needs a starter badly, has a great prospect catcher, and also has a very fine major league catcher blocking the prospect? Atlanta. So I'm suggesting Lohse for Jarrod Saltalamacchia, current line at Mississippi, AA, .471/.776/1.246 and one of the top prospects in baseball. Why does Atlanta do this? Because with a solid third starter, they become a near lock for a playoff spot. Why we would do it seems clear. What's anybody think?
