    So who goes to make room for him or does Nix go to the 60 day DL?

    You cannot be serious. JoePoz is going to have fun with this. We're dropping somebody off the 40 man for a sub-replacement utility guy? Why not just call up Wilkin Castillo?

    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.

    At least we won't have to see him in the postseason

    They also called Burton up from Louisville.

    Just when I start to feel good about things, I hear about a multi-year extension for Dusty and this. I just can't trust this FO.

    oh god
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Does Larkin work for the Reds as an advisor? I watched MLB network about a week ago and for some weird reason Barry was raving on Bloomquist and how versatile he is.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Re: Reds acquire Bloomquist

    Who would you rather have as an emergency OF'er? Bloomquist or Leake? Gosh. The board has been up in arms for nearly two weeks saying "Get a body in here, ANY body". They did. And we're still griping??!! He can't be on the playoff 25, so really the only thing this does is help (at least a little) prevent the Reds from having to do something silly, embarassing, dangerous, or all three should an Armegeddon scenario happen.

    Re: Reds acquire Bloomquist

    No problem with this. He can run a little bit (the Reds have very little speed on the bench) and play anywhere, giving Baker a lot of double switch options. Has hit lefties well this year. I've always kind of liked Bloomquist.
