    Per C. Trent, the Reds selected RHP Sergio Valenzuela from Atlanta.

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    "Despite giving up one run on four hits in seven innings this week, Atlanta prospect Sergio Valenzuela is 0-2 with a 3.08 ERA in five starts. He has allowed nine earned runs over 26 1/3 frames after surrendering 56 runs over 72 innings between Class A Rome and Class A Advanced Myrtle Beach."

    His numbers are horrible. I have no idea how this guy could possibly stick.

    Yuck!

    Born: 9/15/84
    RHP

    Spent two years in the GCL, and then 1 in the Appalachian League. Spent 2007, at age 22 in the Sally League (low A) and the Carolina League (high A).

    Career minor league numbers: 178.2 IP, 10.56 H/9, 0.86 HR/9, 3.13 BB/9, 5.00 K/9. 5.61 ERA, 1.52 WHIP.

    Just wow. This is a guy on his way out of baseball -- not one who should be on a 25 man roster.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Those sure are some bad looking numbers.

    They must see something in him.....

    They let go a dominating guy for a guy who can't get people out at all. I don't understand this at all.

    My bet is they think they can change his fortunes by moving him to relief or something like the Dodgers did with Gagne.

    Taken by the Marlins. Don't expect him back.

    Clearly they see something in the guy other than the numbers. They have access to the same stats, and there is no way to paint a pretty picture here.

    I don't know what they see, but it's something, and clearly they didn't think much of Guevera. He probably won't make the roster, but by all means they may as well try him if they see something they like.

    I get the feeling WK is trying to be too smart for his own good.

    With Valenzuela, I could us offering him back to ATL and the Braves just letting us keep him.
