    Well smartypants just because a player doesn't reach his ceiling doesn't mean the all knowing scouts were wrong in projecting a ceiling. They concede nothing!

    Given that, you bet I'd undo that trade in a heartbeat.
    I'd overpay again 100 times out of 100 given how all ends of that trade are shaping up. Why would you want to undo that trade? So the Reds could miss the playoffs again? The trade wasn't made with 2009 in mind, it was done for 2010. Mission accomplished.

    I still don't think they overpaid. But if that's the terminology we're using... I'm down.

    I doubt anyone could have predicted tHe effect that Rolen had on this team; however, I'm not sure the Reds win the division last year if Rolen didn't play on the team for the last two months of 2009.

    I am also convinced that the Rolen trade at any point doesn't happen without a top prospect going to Toronto.

    The Blue Jays told the Reds that Stewart must be included in the deal. Otherwise, no deal was possible. If the Blue Jays were telling the truth, then the Reds didn't overpay in any way because there wasn't a Rolen on any other team. Sure, there may be better third basemen in the league, but they would cost significantly more in terms of prospects and/or cash.

    Josh Roenicke, who was apart of the Rolen Deal, was claimed off waivers by the Colorado Rockies from Toronto on Thursday.

    Stewy just has his contract purchased by Toronto. Good for him. I'm happy.

    4-3 with a 4.39 ERA in 12 Double-A Starts. Not great, but not horrible.

    Since Drabek was slated to start on Saturday against Volquez, could it be that Stewart makes his MLB debut in Cincinnati after all?

    Stewart's start is underway on MLB Network right now. 2 K's in the first inning. Ironically, they just highlighted E5 as well, who is "hot" this month.

    Stewart is Sickles' Prospect of the Day:

    Sickles projects him to a #3 or #4 starter. He forgot to mention the part about winning multiple Cy Youngs
