    Deadline Day Rumors

    Time for a new thread.

    To begin, it's looking more and more like either Adrian Gonzalez or Victor Martinez will be a Red Sox by 4:00 today.

    In other news, Walt turned his pillow over.

    Have at it!
    Go BLUE!!!

    There aren't even any rumors related to the Reds. Maybe that means we are in for a big day?

    As I said in the other thread, Weathers will likely be gone today. Rhodes might go too. Not much more in Reds country. At least that's all I'm expecting.

    That's all I expect too. I really doubt that both or either go.

    I like your optimism.

    Re: Deadline Day Rumors

    Because Walt has been so disgustingly inactive in his tenure up until now, what is usually a "window dressing" ho-hum move like a Weathers trade should be very carefully scrutinized, so at least we have something to evaluate him on.

    In other words, he better wow us with the return for some of these spare parts. Otherwise, at least in my mind, he should be gone. Bring in someone who has more energy and can be more proactive. I never thought I'd say this, but I'd almost prefer Jim Bowden at this point. At least he was always active and kept things interesting. WJ is slowly morphing into DanO- asleep at the wheel.

    Jim Bowden? You know you are desperate for news when that name starts popping up.

    Re: Deadline Day Rumors

    I'd like to see a move but it is difficult for me to blame WJ for not finding many willing trade partners for what the Reds have to offer. Fans tend to overvalue their players, and being upset that the Reds aren't landing huge returns for the likes of Arroyo, Harang, Weathers, etc. is evidence of this.

    Could he not make a trade that involves all of that "depth" in the minors and find a shortstop? That's my hope anyway.

    While Gonzalez is a great player, the incremental ability above Votto and his much bigger salary makes him a non-essential upgrade.

    Votto is better than Martinez and much cheaper. Martinez is basically a first baseaman these days. I wouldn't trade Alonso for him.

    Tell Walt to dream about a young slick fielding SS.

    I may be way out of the loop...but was the Adrian Gonz or V Mart to the Reds comment tongue in cheek or legit?

    Which comment? Benihana's post says the Red Sox are looking at those two, not the Reds.
