    Considering how many times he's been wrong, I doubt that's going to happen.

    I'm thinking .270/.340/.450 from Hernandez with above-average defense is within reach...

    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?

    I don't think the Reds signed Livan. I think the blogger got his Hernandezes mixed up.

    Hernandez not scrappy enough?

    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 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.

    pretty amazing. we get rid of Freel and improve the team at the same time. and we didn't really lose any key prospects.

    I liked Turner as well and Valaika may miss him but he's a marginal starting 2B at best and he's far better a prospect than Waring.

    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).

    our own Redszone poll of prospects had Turner at #23 & Waring not ranked yet.

    Yeah, I liked Turner too, but Valaika prolly ends up @ 2B & Bucholz may well be major league-ready by the time Turner is. If it's Freel/Turner/Waring I like the deal.
