    Fay talks trade deadline with Jocketty

    From John Fay:

    I asked Walt Jocketty if there’s a chance the Reds won’t do much as the trade deadline approaches.

    “If there’s a way to improve the club, we’ll do it,” Jocketty said. “But we like our club the way it is quite a bit. You never know for sure who’s available. We’re talking to clubs to see what’s out. But I really can’t gauge who active we’ll be.”

    The Reds one big problem – the bullpen – has been better lately.

    “We feel good about our club,” he said. “But if there’s a way to improve, we’ll look at it.”

    I know Jocketty isn't going to tell Fay much but I really the Reds don't stand pat. This team could use another starting pitcher (preferably a TOR starter) and maybe a LH bat to pair with Gomes. It will be disappointing if the Reds don't make a move.

    Re: Fay talks trades with Jocketty

    They might as well not even talk to Jocketty. The man is a master at holding his cards close to his vest.
    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.

    Re: Fay talks trade deadline with Jocketty

    I asked Walt Jocketty if there’s a chance the Reds won’t do much as the trade deadline approaches.

    “I'm trying to trade Harang to the Mariners right now,” Jocketty said. “But they seem to think he's on the downside of his career. I was asking them if they'd consider Aaron for Lee straight up. I never did get an answer...I kept hearing this insane laughing through the phone.”

    The Reds one big problem – the bullpen – has been better lately.

    “We feel good about our club,” he said. “But if there’s a way to improve, we’ll check with you John for suggestions.”
    Any chance this is what Fay intended to write only the rest was a bunch of typos?
    2014 predictions:

    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    I won't be too upset about standing pat. Adding Chapman, Volquez, Bray, Burton, Bailey, Hanigan, possibly Dickerson is a pretty good haul
