    WK: "We're Still Looking..."

    Just got finished watching the Cordero press conference and WK said something to the effect of "we're still looking to make the pitching better." This is not that much of a shocking statement, but, nevertheless, I was glad to hear it.

    Go get 'em Wayne - we can make our pitching a little better and be a winning team, or we can make a big splash and go for the gold this year.... it's in your hands big guy... choose wisely....

    Good point. I hope to God they're still looking.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    What do the Rangers have in terms of SP prospects?

    While the Rangers have a touch of interest in Adam Dunn and Coco Crisp, they prefer the idea of acquiring a young bat. Names they like: Fernando Martinez, Carlos Gomez, Carlos Gonzalez, and Matt Kemp. Sullivan notes that the Rangers have talked to the Reds about Josh Hamilton.

    "We're still looking to make the pitching better" translated from Krivskese to English means "We're actively pursuing every viable pitching option in the baseball universe to win now and in the future"
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    I remember a few seasons ago where I would check the net and listen to WLW everyday to see if the reds had made a move. Finally, WLW announced we had made the move in aquiring a starter, Paul Wilson. Nothing against Paul but you can see the sights are a bit higher now.

    I am so excited about this reds season and this new ownership. They are really impressing me.

    I hope we make a run at Blanton, Haren, or Harden using two or three of the following: Edwin Encarnacion, Stubbs, Juan Francisco, Maloney and a young reliever like Josh Roenicke or Bill Bray. I'm inclined to think Beane likes Maloney because of his stats.

    I dont know if we will hear many rumors but I have noticed already that a lot of places are listing Reds as possible suitors in deals all of a sudden.

    Lets hope Wayne can do something good. Not many trades come out like Beckett for Hanley.
