    Next to go after the season?

    Who do you think Jocketty will dispose of next?

    I think he'll get rid of Edinson Volquez, just to spite Wayne Krivsky. But seriously, I could see Jocketty trading Brandon Phillips and justifying it by saying Jeff Keppinger and Danny Richar could handle the job in his place while the money saved will go to a big-name free agent. I think really (too) big things are expected of him, and I think he wants to do something just as big, or bigger, as trading Griffey and Dunn.

    I'd be okay with that. If Dunn's value was lower than it should be, then Phillips has a value higher than it should be. The Reds should take advantage of that.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    Arroyo wasn't on the list. If a major-league ready starter comes over in the Dunn deal, I think he'll still look to move Arroyo to get out from under the stupid contract of the next two seasons. The goal is to get flexibility to move in many directions in the rebuild; that means getting rid of as many as possible of WK's contracts. But I take it for granted that many on the list will be gone: Majewski, Weathers, Fogg, Javy, Patterson. Those are just questions of time. This team is going to look very different, rightly, IMO.

    everyone on the list, other than Weathers, is flotsam.

    Hopefully Phillips, although I wonder if he's missed the boat on that.

    Re: Next to go after the season?

    I imagine the next activity will be announcing the Reds have no interest in signing Patterson, Weathers, etc.

    I picked Weathers because there's a small chance he'll get moved in a waiver wire deal (although I doubt it).

    I suspect Maj might be back next year because he's a cheap body. Even if he's eligible for arb, he won't cost much. Same with Coffey. With Lincoln, Affedlt, and Weathers pending FAs, Walt really can't empty cut every body he has from the bullpen. He needs some depth to cover contingencies. However, I expect Belisle to be gone. I think Walt has seen enough of him.

    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Patterson. I mean REALLY!!! You can not continue to keep this hack.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    As far as I'm concerned they all should be dumped.

    On that list, I think only the first two stand a decent chance of being back next year. I chose Fogg, because teams get really, really desparate for pitching.

    Why is Arroyo not listed?

    And hack is the appropriate descriptive name for him.

    Totally agree.

    Todd Coffey.

    Though FAR from the biggest problem in this organization, it's just time to move on. He's not going to the job done here.
