    I'd be looking for upgrades at all OF positions. Though I would try to keep Gomes.

    Who bat's 2nd now? It should be Hanigan but now it will be AG?
    To be blunt: who cares?

    Part of me feels the same way about this trade as I felt about the Billy Doran trade in 1990
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Re: Heyman says Rolen to the Reds

    Hrmm this deal gets a big "big deal" from me, Rolen's power has evaporated and he's a Joe Randa at this point, all for 10 million bucks next year, IF he's healthy.

    I'd like it better if we hadn't throw in more then EE.
    Go Gators!

    Sign Beltre or Figgens and I'm more ready to include Frazier in a deal - maybe he, Stewart and others for Yunel Escobar. Now, I am very hesitant to deal Frazier because I'm gonna need him if Rolen goes down. If Beltre or Figgens goes elsewhere you can still do the deal for Rolen. Youd have time to think instead of letting Riccardi push your backup against a deadline and panic you into overpaying.

    The OF as it's currently set is ugly, but Gomes would be nothing more than a bench bat. And you might as well reserve yourself to the fact that WT is in CF next year.

    Would you continue to platoon Gomes and Nix in LF?

    That's how I'd view Gomes. I imagine that WT will share time with one of the AAA guys.

    I don't see Bob eating $4+ next year and I gotta believe if he's on the roster he plays.

    IMO, he didn't overpay. So you're arguing over the timing of the deal at that point. Beltre will require a long term commitment. So would Figgens.

    The Reds dumped a guy without a position and a couple of question mark bullpen guys for some certainty at a decent rate for a limited commitment. It's not a world shifter, but it improves the MLB team, and that's what I as a fan ask for.

    He ate so much of Krivsky's gristle I imagine he's still backed up.

    Then why did they waste money on bringing him back?
