    The only reason I see why the Reds would make this move is to be a veteran presences in our minor leagues. To help move along the youngsters...other then that, I can not see the guy playing for us in the big leagues. QUE Patterson/Taveras Flashbacks!

    We could use a veteran outfielder.. it would put some pressure on stubbs to hit better

    I was hoping Dickerson would put some pressure on Stubbs, but since he has the worst wrist injury in the world I guess not. Could this mean that Dikerson had a setback in his rehab? Why else would we want a guy like Matthews.

    Stubbs will never hit bad enough to excuse playing GMJ.

    He turned that catch into a ton of money he really didnt deserve.

    I think it's a move to prevent our competitors from getting him.

    Which might be a stupid move.

    I thought that idea of the veteran outfielder that can't get on base was a thing of the past?

    Both Dorn and Terrero are on the DL in Louisville. Anyone who has checked out a Louisville box score knows they need hitters. Neither Sappelt or Henry are held in very high regard either. So right now the Reds are really short outfielders on the minor league level.

    This falls under the low-risk, high reward potential as far as Iím concerned. I have been a little uneasy about the Reds bench all season. Matthews, I think can help in that regard. Who knows, maybe they catch lightning in a bottle.

    He is definitely not the player that he once was, but I donít think the Reds are bringing him in to start either. We know the trade prices are going to be high, especially now, you make this low-risk, high reward signing and do not have to give up anybody.

    He goes to Louisville to start, if it doesnít work out, the Reds arenít out anything. If he does work out, thatís a good thing.
