    Catalanotto for Cueto?

    2. Johnny Cueto officially is a phenom.

    How amazing was Cueto, 22, in his no-walk, 10-strikeout debut for the Reds? Since 1956 there have been 4,113 pitchers who debuted in the big leagues. Cueto is the only one of them to start his career with a double-digit strikeout game with no walks.

    True story: While Cueto was tearing up the Midwest League in 2006, the Blue Jays offered outfielder Frank Catalanotto for the smallish righthander. Cincinnati GM Wayne Krivsky, on the job only a few months, didn't reject it out of hand simply because he was still getting acquainted with the Reds' farm system. It took only a brief check with his minor league people to come up with an answer: That would be a definite no.
    Read this on CNNSI. How interesting would that be to be a fly on the wall in the GM's office of a major league team. (especially the Reds')

    Here is the link to the entire article.

    You just know these types of trade offers happen all the time.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
