    The walks have absolutely killed him. The HRs surrendered haven't helped.

    If I were the Reds, I would try to pry him away and see if he can be had on the cheap. He's got a good sinker, which would bode well for GAB if he can get himself corrected.

    Took the words right out of my mouth. He's long been perfect for this park. I'd take a flier on him if I could pry him away from the Tribe.

    IIRC, didn't the Jays do something similar with Roy Halladay early in his career?

    Even with his contract? I'd stay away.
