    Post-Trade Deadline Merged Threads

    The trade deadline is over and I am very disappointed.

    Hatteberg, Conine, Weathers are still on the team. Dunn and Griffey both are and while I didn't want them to leave I would have been excited to have seen what might have been. Is it possible that no one needed Weathers? This guy should have brought some major talent back. The 2 headed first baseman would have been good to have gotten rid of so that Votto could be up here. Are we playing for 2007?

    I can see Hatteburg, Conine, Weathers, and even Griffey passing through waivers, so they may move in August.

    Dunn (thankfully) should be a Red the rest of the year.

    It's like waking up on Christmas morning and finding you've only got tube socks under the tree.

    The old fluff is definitely wavier material. Though, we enjoy the thrill of a blockbuster

    It's official - Reds made no trades today

    From John Fay:
    John Fay reports that manager Pete Mackanin talked to general manager Wayne Krivsky shortly after the non-waiver trade deadline (4 p.m.), and Mackanin said that Krivsky told him the Reds didn't make any trades. The Reds did make one move. Catcher Chad Moeller was outrighted to Triple-A, and infielder Mark Bellhorn was called up.

    3 of those guys are on relatively cheap contracts. I doubt they would clear waivers.

    Re: What a major disappointment this has been!

    In reference to the "grade Krivsky" threads earlier in the year I said the jury's still out; let's see what he does to pump talent into this team between now and the end of 2007. Well a major opportunity just passed w/o adding anything significant to this team's needs and maybe even subtracted a possible bullpem arm in Medlock. Sure, he may still make some deals between now and the end of the year but it'll be harder.

    Krivsky is failing my test as a GM that can improve this team's fortunes. He still gets 'till the end of the year but I'm leaning towards the thinking that he's not "the guy" and I would not be disappointed if Cast removes him prematurely.

    BTW, were there any deadline deals today?

    The only thing I'm dissapointed in is Weathers.

    It doesn't look like Krivsky tried to move him, when it seemed that there was a pretty nice market for him. Other than that, I guess it would have been nice to see Conine moved, but I doubt the Reds would have gotten anyone back of even moderate interest.

    Re: What a major disappointment this has been!

    John Fay speculated a couple of days ago that Wayne might want to give Pete a fair shake as far as winning the manager job. He couldn't trade any major talent away in order to do that. This is what Fay wrote on Sunday:

    My guess is Kyle Lohse is gone. Scott Hatteberg and/or Jeff Conine also might be moved.

    Beyond that, I don't see a lot happening.

    That's because - this is just my theory - Krivsky wants to give interim manager Pete Mackanin a fair chance to earn the permanent gig. For Mackanin to do that, the Reds have to continue to play well.

    I think WK is not quite sure what to do to get this turned around. There isn't a get well plan, just a hope that players will start performing at a higher level.

    Doing nothing is better than doing the wrong thing.

    I'm more upset that Votto will keep sitting down in AAA while the vet squad keeps manning 1st base.

    and Bellhorn? yipes

    Tube socks would have been fine for him... I just wanted to see Votto. Now, oh well...
