The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
I'm thinking .270/.340/.450 from Hernandez with above-average defense is within reach...
"On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."
I think WJ needs to come on back to Cincy, no more trading
I'm fine with this deal. Turner and Waring had no future with the big club in Cincy. Freel was dead weight on the roster. I'm not sure if I understand the Livan Hernandez signing though.
Just for reference, where did people hear about Turner and Waring being the prospects in the deal?

If Turner and Waring are the two prospects, great trade by Jocketty. I expect Hernandez to OPS .750+ next year as a Red. Hanigan settles into the reserve role, where I like him a lot. The Reds had three or four giant ???s coming into the offseason, Walt just solved one of those questions by only giving up two OK prospects and an overpaid reserve outfielder.
Turner was one of my favorites
Turner will be a major league player. Too bad he had to go in this deal. But, you have to give up something to get something, as they say.
"You can't let praise or criticism get to you. It's a weakness to get caught up in either one."
I'm not that impressed with Ramon but at least the Reds aren't sending anything they are likely to miss. It will be interesting to see how much $$ come back because Ramon is a bit pricey considering his production(or lack thereof).

Wow.........if this deal does go down, as heavily rumored, I'm a happy camper.
