    Are there cirumstances in which you think the Reds should bring back WMP?

    Wily Mo and the Nats have mutual options for 09- $2 mil if WMP exercises and $5 mil if the Nats do. If he does not go back, should the Reds look to bring him back?

    No walk rate. No on-base percentage. No defense. No interest.

    Despite some of Arroyo's inconsistencies, it's pretty comical to read this thread now:

    But he can hit the ball really hard. Let's bring him back.

    Not.

    I like his name, but they can keep his bat, glove and salary.

    Highway robbery in retrospect.

    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

    I know I'm in the minority, but I'd love the gamble of bringing back Willy Mo. He a RH slugger who always plays better given more time. He's still relatively young and could blossom. The talent is still there.

    As a RF, Pena could be a treat.

    Understand, I'd have a pretty solid back-up plan in place should he fail miserably.

    If it means never seeing Corey Patterson again (and/or never seeing Patterson/Janish as the first two hitters in the lineup)... sign me up.

    Honestly, we could do worse for a backup OF and we obviously need guys who can hit LH pitching. Next year I would be on board with it. Wily Mo is going to have one good year in MLB eventually. OK maybe not. But again, if it means no Corey Patterson I would do it right now. Maybe dumb Bowden would have flashbacks to Patterson's days as a top prospect and would do the trade.

    Why do we need Pena? We could just call up Juan Fransisco....
    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.
