    This made me dizzy..... so I stopped reading it.

    Actually this shows maybe the reds "are" improving in the pitching dept.
    Coming into this season, Belisle was considered a "lock" for the #3 spot despite having a 5+ era.
    In ST, Belisle has pitched to about ther same level and now he is fighting to probably get the #5 spot.
    This rotation sure beats the Hamilton(Joey),Anderson,Haynes etc of the past.

    Re: Trade rumor

    To start out why not go with a prospect from Krivskys' favorite trading acquantinence, the Minnesota Twins.
    Eduardo Morlan
    W L ERA G GS SV IP H ER HR BB SO BAA
    2 1 2.60 16 0 8 27.2 18 8 0 3 39 .175

    High strikeouts and stunning control are a plus but his numbers as a starter last year are just as good if not better and he is only 21.

    W L ERA G GS SV IP H ER HR BB SO BAA
    5 5 2.29 28 18 2 106 78 27 6 38 125 .202

    A second strong candiate pitching wise is Michael Zagurski from Philly. Numbers really show on this 24 year old lefty as he has yet to allow a HR in his minor league carrier. Not only that but he has averaged 16.875 K/9 so far this year.

    With the lack of sufficient catching prospects a seemingly quick fix could be as easy as the Rangers Taylor Teagarden who in his first full season this year has maintained a .333 average while knocking out 9HR in only 108AB.

    The Mariners hold a second option as a catcher with Jeff Clement as his progression from AAA is prevented by Kenji Johjima. His increasingly diminishing value due to his stubborness leave him swinging for little more than power alone at the plate. This combined with an unsuprising .244 BA would likely keep Krivsky from wanting him. Regardless his power potential and potentially low asking price are to much to pass up.

    One of the most reasonable to acquire and probably the easiest would be Neil Walker of the Pirates. Walking away with impressive prospect Brent Lillibridge in the Adam LaRoche deal last year proves the Pirates will deal about anyone away for the right price, which in most cases is little to nothing. Walker is not only a switch-hitter but also posses smooth line drive skills. Converted to third from catcher he is in route to vault up prospect lists soon.

    stopping short but the list could go on forever.
