    Re: Heyman says Rolen to the Reds

    The glass:

    1/2 empty: Stewart could be quite a pitcher down the road, Roenicke seemed to be a decent reliever and EE could end up hitting ok. And Rolen could go back to his gimpy ways.

    1/2 full: Defense is upgraded tremendously--3b is better and Votto won't have to work as hard at 1b. The Reds still have lots of prospects to develop and/or trade. Rolen is a much more consistent hitter than EE and makes LF easier to fill (no need for as big a bat as before).

    Going to be a while before we hear the accurate amount of cash coming this way. You can bank on it being a nice amount with the two pitchers thrown in.

    Hate to lose the prospects, but if BJs send cash, there's still decent money to get a SS or LF next season. Just saying.

    Thats what I was thinking.

    Right, you have to pay to get stuff. I don't hate this deal, and I can breathe again now that I know it's not Alonso. I just don't know if I understand the timing of it all.

    Expect some waiver deals next month for Arroyo or Harang.

    In short, he's a Reds' pitching prospect. Useless to the Reds.

    But it's entirely possible that the Jays' farm system can develop him into something.

    Then we should have made this deal in 2002.

    Cue Walt supporters with: Edwin had a bad attitude and was a clubhouse cancer
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    This is so sad, but I'd almost rather see good pitchers from the Reds' farm system go elsewhere while they're young, so they still have a chance.

    Pathetic.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Trading Stewart is going to look really dumb in a few years. They should have let Walt take his afternoon nap.

    Rolen is one of my favorite players of all time, it's a shame that we're going to get the Griffey-esque "Fat Elvis" years of his career.

    So, "there is no such thing as a pitching prospect" doesn't apply here? I really know nothing about Stewart other than he is highly thought of on RZ, but I shrug anymore on dealing prospects. So many of them don't pan out or are fringe players. I laughed the other night when Jeff Stevens appeared for the Cubs, who was the PTBNL for Brandon Phillips. He made it to the majors, but I think we got our money's worth out of that prospect deal. Here's hoping Rolen is the beginning of rebuilding the O.
