    July 31 4 PM: Who do the Reds get?

    Who will the Reds end up with, if anyone, when the trade deadline comes to pass?

    In my gut I feel that Shields and Upton are coming this way. I of course have no evidence to support my feelings but what fun would proof be? I also think Walt will add a random bullpen arm or two.

    I'd pee myself if the Reds got Pence. and .850 OPS this year against RH pitching.

    Yes please.

    So naturally I see Fister coming. ugh.

    They'll add Ryan Ludwick and a reliever of some sort.

    They'll stay out of the SP game when every trade offer gets a reply of "How about Devin Mesoraco" and they realize that a guy like Doug Fister isn't demonstrably better than Dontrelle Willis.

    I would love to see a real upgrade, but I just don't see it coming. Standing pat leaves this team more option for 2012 and beyond and WJ has proven to be a very patient GM with the Reds.

    There are several options on that list that I'd like to have, but in the end, ny gut says, Nada. Nothing but talk and excuses.

    Ubaldo Jimenez for Grandal, Alonso and Boxberger.

    I think the Rockies aren't really serious about trading Jimenniz.. They are just wasting everyone's time.

    I predict a deal gets done with Tampa.. They have no qualms about dealing anyone. They'll be more motivated to get the prospects.

    I predict Beltran stays in NY.. no one pays the outrageous asking price, and the Mets keep him rather than get less than what they want.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Jason Isringhausen for Chris Valaika. Walt extends him on the cheap for 2012 with unstated intent of the closer's job being his to lose.

    That would be an awesome trade right there.

    I think we get a decent reliever and that's it, say Brandon League.
    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.

    I get the feeling that Bob is going to be willing to up the ante especially after losing out to the Rangers on Lee last season. I think he overpays for Ubaldo and gets someone like Ludwick for the outfield. Or at least that is what I wish would happen.
