    I'm kind of surprised there wasn't an ORG thread about Utley. There was one in Sun Deck, after all...

    I believe this was a good move by the Phils. They rent a proven second baseman while Utley is out for a low A reliever.

    Kenny Williams and Pat Gillick must have each other on speed dial with all the deals they make (Thome, Garcia, Iguchi).
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Williams must have wanted Dubee to passed up the draft picks.

    Knock on wood for Brandon Phillips. He's managed to stay healthy which is a fantastic asset for a player. Lord knows, the REDS have had their share of guys who can't stay in the lineup.

    Dunn's ironman abilities is one of his greatest strengths, too.

    You can pencil him in for 40 HR's 100 walks, 100 runs and 100 rbi's.

    You'd think after getting damaged goods with Garcia, he wouldn't call him anymore.
