    Fay: Reds Willing To Trade For Or Sign A Reliever

    Fay reports on his blog that the Reds are exploring the possibility of signing or trading for a reliever.

    Here's a name for you: Ian Snell

    Either move LeCure to the pen or minors or use Snell in Long Relief along with Owings. Snell is being released by Seattle so maybe the Reds can nab him before the Cards do. Snell has Dave Duncan written all over him..

    Cards have a worst record, they have 1st dibs

    I'd honestly rather have Weathers than Snell.

    If were gonna get someone please don't go after the Ian Snell's of the world. That is what they did in 2006, it was a revolving door of mediocridy. If your gonna make a move, don't be afraid to deal a decent prospect are two for a solid reliever.

    Snell is a bit of a head-case from what I've read; probably not worth the energy.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I hate to see the Cardinals get Snell.

    Snell has talent. With his stuff, you could see him play up as a dominant reliever. I'd certainly kick the tires on that, if possible.

    I saw Snell pitch last night, gave up a quick 4 runs to the Cards.

    No one will claim him on waivers, as he costs to much.

    He'll be free at the end of the day.

    More cutting-edge stuff from Fay. Wow, the Reds are interested in improving their atrocious bullpen? I never even considered the possibility.

    Based on stuff alone.... and maybe working with Price....I'd love Snell here this year.

    I heard that Weathers was potentially interested in pitching half a season with the Reds...I suppose that wouldn't be a horrible option.

    Snell has been horrible for Seattle this year. In fact I'm disappointed he won't start one of the games against us this weekend. If he's horrible pitching in Safeco, think how bad he'd be at Great American. Opposing players would be fighting over the chance to grab a bat and step in against him.

    No thanks

    Let's sign or trade a real pitcher. This isn't 2004. We've got a real chance
