    If a lot of players are moving, I hope we get a catcher.

    Lopez's .287 obp does not indicate to me he has a better eye than pokey.

    Bowden identified Lopez as a 2b/ss so esstenial we traded walker and dessens for a younger cheaper 2b and 2 prospects. Yeah This team is committed to winning.

    29 BB in 173 AAA ABs last season. 35 BB in 459 big league ABs in 2001-2002. Those aren't bad BB rates for a young player.

    JimBo just announced it's only Lopez coming back and compared it to the Burba-Casey deal (mentioned the Smiley, Brantley and Shaw deals too). Hey, weren't the Reds rebuilding back then?

    Don't count on it. I get this feeling that the main objective John Allen has given Bowden is to use that $60 million as frugally as possible. Thus, Dessens is expendable for a worn-out Pete Harnish. It's the same old story over and over. It's driving me NUTS!

    Where are we going to spend this 60 million. Currently we are going backyards. Maybe Reidling can be a Starter ??

    So how much more $ does this put back in Lindners pocket?


    Leave it to Jimbo, only GM to get $#%& in a 4 way deal.

    So now the Reds' rotation is?

    Dempster, Graves, Haynes, Reitsma and ???

    Looked a whole lot better with Dessens in there. The rotation was, at best, average with Dessens. IMO, the need for an ace has gone up in recent days.

    I like the deal.

    Two reasons.

    1. The Reds need Young Middle Infielders, I think this guy is going to be a good one.

    2. This gives us a little more room to bring in a pitcher, another deal will be done!

    Name one pitcher the Reds have traded in the past 5 years that has actually improved from his last season as a red? Remlinger is the only one i can think of. Gabe White. ok 2.

    But never a starter.


    I'll go against the grain and back this trade. Opens a spot in the rotation for Reidling or Willy.
    Suck it up cupcake.
