    Podsednik and Renteria

    These are the 2 moves I believe Walt ends up making this off season. I think they would be good moves not great but good. They are good leaders who have been there before. Solid moves i think.

    Please no Renteria. How is that an upgrade over Janish? Renteria hasnt hit for anything since 2007 and his defense is a huge step down from Janish.

    Re: Podsednik and Renteria

    I like Pods because he hits lefty and could platoon with Gomes or Heisey, but please don't play him every day.
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    Wow, these are the additions people are now clamoring for...

    Info: Brewers sold another 1500 Season Ticket sales the day after the Greinke Trade, there was the revenue the Reds needed...

    QUOTE

    MILWAUKEE -- Zack Greinke already is paying off for the Milwaukee Brewers.

    Team officials say they've added more than 1,500 new season-ticket holders since Sunday's trade with the Kansas City Royals, more than tripling the 400 new account holders the team had added in the first few months of the offseason.

    Rick Schlesinger, the Brewers' executive vice president of business operations, says response from fans has exceeded "even our most optimistic expectations." He says the trade also has helped the team's sponsorship and retail sales.

    Just say no to both, neither improve our team and in fact actually take us down a step or two.

    Not the point. Everyone said the Reds couldnt raise the payroll. The revenue would have helped counter the added Salary...

    Oh well, pointless anyway... Greinke is a Brewer and pitching in Cincy Opening Day anyway.

    not that much, and you need to add what monies you have to posititions you really have need for. Adding Greinke would have been a luxury, not filling a need.

    Not that Much? Add up 1500 New Season ticket sales, and thats quite a little cash infusion...

    You will be sorry Opening Day, Mark this Post.

    It depends on where those ST seats are. And again, adding him doesn't make our overall team that much better. He would only contribute to what like 30 games? It is NOT a position of weakness on this team and would stunt the growth probably of either Leake/Wood or Bailey. Of those 3, I believe both Leake and Wood have the good chance of being as good as Grienke if not better. You have glaring issues at LF that needs to be addressed and can and will have greater impact on how this team does. Sorry but Walt was smart, let the Brewers have him, when they have not hitters to score runs he will be back in teh same position he was with the Royals and unhappy again.

    I will take our OD pitcher (probably Bronson) over Grienke this coming season in a heart beat.

    They have a window of opportunity to Win, and they have 5 players with 20 Homers and 80 RBI last year on the roster...

    I think they are the favorites to win the Central.

    Hart
    Weeks
    Braun
    Fielder
    McGahee
    Gomez
    Bentancourt
    Lucroy

    That Lineup will be Lethal!

    Going with the pitching staff, Look out...

    please I see them maybe 3rd, but more like 4th. i see it being us the cards and houston who will be the surprise team this year. The Brewers have 2 good pitchers on their entire staff and 2 very good hitters. plus they will be losing some of that talent come the trading deadline...

    You are living in La La land... That Lineup is probably better than the reds 1-8

    Please see my response in the Walt horse-trader thread. The bottom line is that this would not have happened for the Reds.
