    2b Danny Richar and RP Nick Masset are being reported by one outlet as the return.

    No confirmation on that.

    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

    That's why satellite radio rules. I get the Reds, but I don't have to deal with the other garbage.

    Anyone know anything about Danny Richar & Nick Masset? Hopefully better than Brian Anderson!

    Someone from the Chicago media is speculating on XM that it might be a three way deal, but it's a pretty sure thing that Richar and Massett are definitely the guys coming from the Sox.

    I have read that from multiple sources. It does not make much sense but that is what they are talking about. More than likely if this deal goes through the White Sox have at least one more deal going through to free up space for Junior to play.

    There's certainly some sadness, but I hope it goes through. If Junior nixes the deal, I would move him to 7th in the order and play him no more than 3 to4 days a week - not as a punishment, but because that is the way it should have been since June.

    I'd rather have prospects than Anderson, activate Hairston (leadoff an playing CF), bring up Dickerson (battin g 7th when playing) and DFA Patterson. I'd make top of my lineup Hairston, Keppinger and Bruce.

    If the ChiSox pickup half of what is remaining on the contract (including the buyout) the Reds are big winners in this deal.

    I can't get the WLW internet feed to load. What's the lowdown on the ad people are talking about?
    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.

    Well. At least we don't have to watch Brian Anderson every day.

    I'm now hearing more rumors that it may not just be Griffey heading to Chicago.

    Some people are saying Affeldt or Weathers may be joining him. Not sure if there's any truth to this though.

    Re: Griffey Jr Traded to the White Sox (Pending Griffey Approval)

    I found this report on Richar from two years ago:

    Batting and Power: What makes Danny Richar such an appealing prospect is the very same thing that failed to get him noticed in the first place. His body. At just 5'10" and 155lbs when the Diamondbacks signed him out of the Dominican Republic in 2001, he certainly didn't look like a player who had four solid tools. Five years later he's added two inches, and 15 pounds, to his frame, and as the body starts to fill out, the wicked bat speed that got him what little attention he received, started translating into power.

    After hitting a grand total of two homers in his first two season, Richar started showing more pop in '04, where he tallied 16 doubles, four triples and six homers between Lancaster and Double-A El Paso. Last season that potential power became power, as he drove 20 over the fence. The Diamondbacks knew that the body had room to grow, and they were willing to let it happen at its own pace. His offseason workouts have focused on adding another 10 pounds of muscle to a frame that could easily carry another 20, and there is quiet speculation that Richar could end up being a top prospect, at some position, by the end of 2006.

    But in order to hit the ball out of the park, Richar has to learn to hit the ball consistently. He has done an impressive job cutting down on his strikeouts (just 64 in 454 at bats in '05, as opposed to 95 in 465 ABs in '04) but still gets pull conscious and ends up grounding the ball to the right side too often. It was no surprise that after Richar apparently turned the corner in July, hitting .327 with four homers, he immediately went south in August, hitting just .278 with eight homers. When he wants the ball to leave the park, things don't go well.

    "He was 21 and already had three solid pro seasons under his belt," Diamondbacks Vice President of Scouting Operation Mike Rizzo says, "and he's inconsistent, but lots of guys are going to be at that age."

    For Richar the key is finding the balance. With the added muscle the bombs are going to come on their own, hitting the ball hard doesn't mean hitting home runs.

    my guess is that they will try and move Richar to CF to take advantage of the speed and arm. It seems like from reading what I could find he has some issues with defense as an IF.

    ESPN says that the Sox pick up half of Junior's contract and the buyout.
    "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."
