    How quickly we can change our minds after seeing results. Reyes did not produce any.

    Not that it's going to happen, but how do we know the Reds aren't on Halladay's list? I thought I read somewhere that he wants to go somewhere that is a little more low key than NY. And the Reds do have a decent number of prospects in the pipeline to make deals with if necessary.

    Could be. And I don't disagree Halladay is unlikely to approve such a trade. However, dabbs has a good point - say the Reds really are trying to trade for Halladay. Even if it won't come to fruition, it would seem some people owe an apology for the harsh tone they've taken toward the organization's perceived lackluster 'effort.'

    It also sounds like a Walt Jocketty inspired move. That is the kind of player he WOULD go get. It may be BS, but a move for a player like Halladay to pair with Volquez and ANY bat could return the Reds back to contention. Halladay, a healthy Volquez, Cueto, Harang and Arroyo could win at a .600 clip if they got another bat. The key here is that it isn't enough for this year, but it would be for next year for sure.

    As Colin Cowherd always says, "At least be interesting."
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    might want to check your post history again. If it had a bat on it's chest with two Cardinals sitting on it, you probably were supporting it. You just called Ryan Franklin a lights out closer based on half a season. It's seems to me that your opinions are somewhat jaded.

    Actually we owe nothing of the sort.

    It's an internet rumor so we have no idea if it's even true. And it it is, as you suggest, I offer no apology for expecting Walt to do his job.

    Now, if Walt pulls off a spectacular series of moves in the next 7 days that sets us up for 2010 and beyond? Then I'll eat a big helping of Crow-Helper.

    Re: Reds have interest in Halladay

    In this depressed market, all this BS talk by Halladay about wanting to go to a winner is going to dry up and blow away at the first seriously competitive extension he's offered.

    Not that I could ever imagine the Reds offering a competitive salary (except when overpaying for replaceables like Arroyo and Gonzalez).

    You can say you have interest all day long, but the proof is in the pudding or something. I honestly don't think the Reds have the chips to get him from Toronto unless they deal Votto or Cueto.

    no negotiating until the trade is completed ... at least according to "the pimp".

    Re: Reds have interest in Halladay

    First off, no, I don't expect this deal to happen.

    But it fits the parameters of the type of deal Jocketty has said he's looking for and the Reds can probably pull together the package to do it. Will Halladay accept a trade to Cincinnati? Highly doubtful. But, as the old sales advice goes, never say "no" for the other guy.
