    I'm surprised they're dealing Roenicke and Stewart. Steep price to pay, especially if the Reds are paying Rolen in full.

    i know everyone loves stewart but in the top 100 prospects in baseball hes ranked where???? I mean hes a nice pitching prospect but you do have to give up something to get an all start GG thirdbasemen.

    The report is now looking false, but if it were true, it'd be horrendously stupid.
    Walt has been sent through the ringer for the past week for not adding either real MLB talent or getting great prospects. He just got a legitimate 3b, and now people are complaining.

    Rolen is not going to be an MVP next year, but the upgrade over EdE is tremendous. Rolen doesn't have to hit 320 next year to still be a big upgrade.

    I'm glad to see EdE go.. another guy that could never play defense.

    We can survive losing Roenockie and Zach Stewart.

    And I have to give Cast credit for taking on salary here to improve the team. I just ripped him a new one a few hours ago. Looks like he's still willing to spend some money. Maybe it's not hopeless afterall.

    Maybe I'm the only one, but I'm happy with this trade.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Seriously. No one gets ribbed about that kind of absurd hyperbole.

    odds are high the 2010 Rolen looks a lot more like the 07 and 08 version than the 09 one.

    Re: Heyman says Rolen to the Reds

    Walt is what I thought he was, a non talent evaluating GM. You don't give up those 2 in addition to EE just plain stupid. Roenicke I would have not liked to seen go but I could have understood it depending on the dollars involved. Stewart going in addition is just ludicrous in addition ot Roenicke or not.

    I know Walt is semi geriatric, but has dementia already set in?

    As I was afraid: Target fixation and no other deals to support it.
