    Hatteberg And Catcher Could Be Dealt First...

    MLBTradeRumors.com -

    Rosenthal expects the Reds to move Scott Hatteberg and a catcher before they get down to the more serious business of mullling offers for Adam Dunn and Ken Griffey Jr.
    "I could watch video of Griffey swinging all day. It's like baseball porn." - C. Trent Rosecrans

    Gee, they really went out on a limb there.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Mulling offers for Griffey? Really? What the hell are they waiting on?

    I have been frustrated that Hatteberg and the additional catcher is even on the team, when the team needed other versatile players who could be utilized and contribute instead of riding the bench while being stifled by the makeup of this team. I am kind of surprised that Jocketty being the former advisor to the ownership and now GM hadnít already observed the need for a change there and taken care of it. I guess it takes time to move players for a PTNL. Perhaps no one wants them.

    The wording's a bit weird, I guess. It sort of implies that the offers have been made but that they haven't gotten around to mulling them over. Maybe not.

    There is the small matter of convincing Junior that it's in his best interest (and the teams) for him to be playing elsewhere later in the summer.

    Kind of tough to do that quietly during a 6 game winning streak.

    Hehe, true. If so, I hope not.

    I think that they are going to be mulling things over until the off season.

    As you know that some of these guys shouldn't have been on the team to begin with, so they really mulled that one.

    Maybe the trades of Hatteberg and a catcher are intended to reel in spare parts they could throw in to make a trade of Junior possible?

    That is exactly it. Fay's article Sunday said according to Walt Jocketty they have had no calls about Junior yet. I don't really think they will get calls until a lot closer to the trade deadline. There just are not many deals made until teams see where they are closer to the deadline.

    Who would want any of the catchers the Reds have?

    I'm sure the Yankees wouldn't mind having Bako right now.
