    Del Rosario now an Astro

    Looks like Reds traded Del Rosario to the Houston Astros for cash considerations. Found this posted on the Reds Facebook page.

    Better to be silent and thought a fool, than speak and be proven one.

    A few weeks of Bloomquist for Del Rosario...hmm.

    I don't think Del Rosario is going to be a stud reliever or anything...but this just seems like a terrible exchange.

    I don't see how. Del Rosario wasn't even called up when rosters expanded. Clearly he wasn't contributing, so Bloomquist getting one hit last night was more than Del Rosario was going to contribute this year.

    The Reds haven't made the playoffs in 15 years. So yeah, I'm mostly concerned about this year...especially when the player they lost clearly had no long-term role within the organization.

    I'd take Del Rosario in the pen over Cordero.

    It's really not. I believe Del Rosario could contribute more effectively than Cordero. And I'm not even that high on Del Rosario.

    Apples to oranges.

    But to go along with that comment, if Del Rosario had the previous track record and salary of Cordero, he wouldn't have been shipped out.

    This is the reality people when you have strong 40 man. In 2006 you keep him, in 2010 he's 100% expendable. Best of luck.

    Shark, meet Fonzie, I believe you've been jumped.

    I know Cordero has been bad this last week but really?
