    Wes Helms, anyone?

    According to BP's website, Philly's signing of Pedro Feliz makes Helms available. Any interest in him at a reasonable price as a RH bench bat? And what would constitute a reasonable price?

    Stanton for Helms.

    Stanton for Helms

    if they don't think that is enough I would toss in Castro as a sweetener.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I'd love to rid the club of Castro and Stanton.

    I'd hate to have to pay Helms 5.5mm in 2008.

    Why trade a cheap player with some value for a bad player who makes $5.5M?

    It would be a bad move on every level possible.

    He actually makes 2.75 in 2008. He has an option for 2009, don't know if it is club, player, or mutual.

    anyway, don't blame me, i'm only trying to accommodate one of the more reasonable solutions posed by those who are convinced the Reds need to add a RH corner guy with some pop.

    me? i like keppinger as the RH platoon guy at first.

    Sorry about the false information in my post.

    I read somewhere that Helms was signed for 5.5m. I Should have known it was split into a two year deal.

    Sorry.

    The problem with Norris Hopper being on the team is that someone might get some harebrained notion that he deserves significant playing time.

    Fluke or not, If he continues to hit over .300 I'd put him on the roster. What is so hairbrained about that?
