Cristian Guzman? Ryan Zimmerman?
Stubbs is ready.

We are deep with outfield talent and need to turn that into pitching and addressing the left side of the infield.
Strikeouts are boring - besides that, they're fascist. Throw some ground balls. More democratic. ~Bull Durham

A not-so-common ending in the Carolina win over West Tennessee today. Heading into the bottom of the ninth with a two-run lead, Ramon Geronimo loads the bases with one out on a single, a double and an intentional walk. He then walks the next batter as well, cutting the Mudcats' lead in half. The following West Tennessee batsman proceeds to lift a fly ball to left field. Frazier hauls it in and then guns down a runner at the plate. A 7-2 double play preserves the victory. Nice.
Just was looking at the stats. Wood pitched another great game 6 innings 6 K's ERA now 1.38. Ondrusek still hasn't given up a run in Carolina. Manuel was great again in Louisville.
Coddington is now batting .295 at Dayton and Bour is at .283 in Sarasota. Knowing Hernandez contract is up at the end of this year and the Reds probably won't want him at 8+ million next shouldn't they be pushing these kids.
I didn't say it could be a straight up trade.
Zimmerman's the face of the franchise and pretty much untouchable. It'd be the equivalent of the Reds trading Jay Bruce.
I'd take Guzman in a heartbeat.
Guzman for the right price would be a pretty solid target. I dont think the Reds think SS is that big of a problem though.
Well recently, it hasn't been. One of the few spots.
Guzman is definitely a big ticket item. I was thinking a package of pitching. We can shed some real talent and still have some left over. I'd seriously think about including Roenicke. I think Manuel and Viola will top out above him.
But NOT Cueto.
Guzman's $8 mil salary is not too bad either.
