    It's got about as much chance of happening as the Reds getting Johan Santana.

    though it seemed far fetched something seemed strange over weekend.
    jn knowing how bad our bullpen is and with milton on mound and pulling griff in 4th.then not playing him sunday.just seemed odd to me.

    I still don't doubt that SOMETHING is going on, for the reasons you stated among others. I just don't think it'll be the "rumor" from the espn boards. Kearns for Westbrook wouldn't surprise me one bit.

    And we keep going, and going and going.

    Tony Armas JR is on the block.... Mr. K should give JimBo a call....

    If we could have a 2008 rotation of:

    Harang
    Bailey
    Pitcher acquired for EE
    Travis Wood

    I think we'd definately be in the wild card hunt (at least) all season. I believe 2008 is Arroyo's last season under contract. Hopefully, we'll sign Harang to an extension. Bailey should be in the rotatoin to start 2008, and I'm guessing Travis Wood makes the rotation at some point that season. That's the year I'm looking to and will be disappointed if we don't make the post season that year.
    I actually expect Zach Ward to be the starter after Homer to get an extended shot in the rotation.

    I know I've read where some here have posted that he's best suited for the pen, but with his apparent makeup and college experience - if he can continue his extreme propensity for throwing ground balls, I'd give him a shot at the bottom of the rotation first.

    I know that they haven't really challenged him yet, but I think that will change soon and excelerate next year.

    The reason they were considering using him out of the bullpen is because he has a shortarm delivery that some think could lead to an arm injury. I think the jury is still out on what his role will ultimately be. I'll bet he stays a starter. Sure could use a promotion.

    okay, thanks.

    He allegedly requested Lastings Milledge in exchange for Livan Hernandez, so there's no telling what he'd want. Worth a phone call, though.

    Armas and Soriano for Dunn?


    I am just throwing it out there to get people's thoughts. I would have to look at some stats to see if I would do it or not.

    I know JimBo loves Dunn.

    Soriano for Dunn was thrown out at the beginning of the year by Bowden to Dan O who turned it down flat. I want no part of a Soriano rental.

    What if you could resign him?

    I would do that in a second. Soriano is a better fielder, hitter and baserunner than Dunn.
