    Masset is another Majewski. Anderson is another Patterson. Frankly, I would have preferred cash or a low minors prospect.
    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.

    Some media outlets have categorized Griffey as untradeable because of the widespread perception he would insist on having his $16.5 million option exercised in conjunction with a deal. But sources said Griffey was willing to consider returning to Cincinnati for a lower annual price if the Reds might consider tacking an extra year onto his deal.

    Center fielder Brian Anderson and the .275 lifetime on-base percentage. Batting leadoff, baby! Actually, since Anderson's a righty we can just platoon Patterson and Anderson.

    If Griffey approves I'm hoping Chris Dickerson is called up to take over CF against RHP.

    Sox covering the $4M option seems to be the most reasonable assumption. That would mean the Reds would receive fodder at best unless the deal expanded as rumored.

    Let's hope for no bad '09 contract in return.

    I think Wheelhouse's comment as written was reasonable. 2001-2008 turned out to be a lost period for the Reds for a host of reasons (poor mgmt, no plan, no pitching, no farm system) KGJ's unfortunate injuries, rapid resulting decline and complete loss of market value due to his '05-'08 contract certainly didn't help the cause.

    I was just reading that the radio station in Chicago reported Griffey will play CF with the Sox. Surely that's wrong.

    Well Jerry does give you a good leadoff hitter - benches Patterson and lets Bruce move down the order.

    I think it would be great if Junior when for the rest of the year - the ChiSox paid the buyout and the REDS picked him up for $6 million for the next two years. As he has shown he is still offensively dangerous.

    Like I said, that's what they were discussing on Mike & Mike too (grain of salt). I didn't believe it could be true but...

    Dickerson is a plus defensive center fielder by all accounts, in addition to his defense he's hitting .279/.382/.481 in AAA including a very impressive .295/.398/.533 - .931 OPS against right handed pitchers.

    the stuff I have been reading on their board says Swisher is going back to A's in a deal for Street and Ellis and Cabrera will be heading to the Dodgers. It would leave them without a CF(Swisher - who isn't really one anyway and Ramirez moving to SS, although they could move Uribe there)
