    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Nope, Cordero is worth more than Wood. Especially in the world of old school GMs. In Jocketty's world Cordero is worth more than Scott Rolen.
    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.

    We've got about the same chance of getting Ed Wood from the Angels as we do Brandon Wood.

    How many closers do the Angels need?

    7. they need 7.

    Cordero for Izturis straight up. I jump on it. I enjoy finger painting though, so these opinions might not be valid.

    I have said before that the Angels could use Coco. Fuentes has been very average (ERA+ ~105) and their pen is very thin. Not a good sign for the playoffs.

    I suspect Wood is their third baseman once Figgins leaves this winter.

    They would still have two major league caliber starting shortstops (Aybar and Izturis) even if they keep Wood.

    So...one of their shortstops plus a prospect for Coco. Seems like a win win type of trade.

    The problem is that Cordero's large contract greatly reduces his value in a trade. I am afraid the Reds will get far less for him than many of you hope, since the main point of trading him would be to unload what's left of his $46 million contract.

    I think it's "Brandon Wood is a bust".

    65/9 is his K/W rate in 220 PA in the majors. And it's said he can't play SS in the majors.
