    Reds Recieve $1 From Royals to Complete LaRue Deal

    The Royals' media guide still lists the Royals sending a player to be named to the Reds in exchange for catcher Jason LaRue. Has that trade never been completed?
    -- Jason J., Prairie Village, Kan.

    That November 20, 2006, deal that brought LaRue to the Royals has been completed, Taylor tells us. The Royals sent the Reds $1. That's right, the big one buck that is sometimes specified as "cash considerations" if the two teams cannot agree on the player to be named. This is a fairly common practice. The Reds wanted to move LaRue and his $5.45 million salary that winter and they assumed a large chunk of it to make the deal. The Royals, in return, agreed to send the Reds a player to be named or $1. Reading between the lines, it appears the Reds just wanted to clear most of LaRue's salary off their books and really didn't care about receiving a player in return. They could apply the $1 to Ken Griffey Jr.'s salary.

    Ummm... $1, not $1M.
    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.

    1 Dollar?! HAHAHAHA That's hilarious

    It's not 1 million btw...

    EDIT: ALSO, why wouldn't they have just sent $1.00 to begin with?

    Let's go out and get A-Rod!
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I'll give them a dollar myself if they get rid of Castro. I'll then give them another dollar if they get rid of Josh Fogg. Then I'll throw a dollar tip in just out of happiness.

    That's $3 coming your way, Bob, if you do the right thing.

    With the falling value of the dollar since the trade the Reds really lost out.

    Chad Moeller was also traded by the Reds for $1.

    I was planning on going to the strip club... but I might just donate my singles to this charity instead.

    I'll match that pledge. There's no way on God's green earth they pass up the offer now.

    Haha and will you take on the remaining money left on their contracts too (like the Royals did)? I didn't think so :

    Just take 97 singles in with you instead of 100, and I bet you don't even notice the difference. Think of it like this, with 3 going to Bob and 97 to the dancers, you'll be funding two good causes simultaneously.
