    Are you taking into account the fact that Dunn and/or Griffey could get traded? Hatteberg also. And Weathers.

    No, but there's a good reason for me not too:

    I think you're forgetting one word that still gives us a very good shot:

    And I would count on the Reds getting a dead cat bounce from the new skipper. It always happens.

    That's the short term look the Reds were looking for - need to sell those tickets the next few months.

    All-Star Break Update

    Top Five Worst Records:

    1. Tampa Bay Devil Rays 34-53
    2. Cincinnati Reds 36-52, 1.5 GB
    3. Washington Nationals 36-52, 1.5 GB
    4. Texas Rangers 38-50, 3.5 GB
    5. Kansas City Royals 38-50, 3.5 GB

    Looks like the Reds have their work cut out for them if they are serious about getting the #1 pick.

    The good news is if the DRays get the #1 pick, they may be more inclined to take Alvarez over Matusz, given the fact that they picked Matusz Sr. in Price #1 overall this year.

    Doesn't the NL team with the worst record draft #1 in 2008?

    If we did get a high pick, would the management pay for him? I think that is an equally important question. I can see Mackanin having a good second half, and we would end up drafting in the middle. Which might be better, as the management wouldn't have a problem picking lower down.
