    I don't even have to hear the names of the minor leaguers in this one... Walt has lost his mind to give up anything more than Wood for a one-year rental of Sean Marshall.

    For 2012 not a bad deal but if the reds dont resign marshall after 2012 i believe hes a free agent then its a bad deal.

    Let's wait to see the prospects before going nuts. And if Marshall can be extended more than one year I'm ok with it. Wood might be good but he's a fly ball pitcher. His 2011 was fairly awful even in AAA. Marshall is considered by many to be the best lefty reliever in baseball. So let's see what happens. This moves confirms though that the Reds wasnt to win now. Next year. Immediately.

    He is arguably the best reliever in the majors; Wood is a #5-6 this year and who had a bad year last year! Frankly if we are giving him and 2 low expectancy prospects I'm cool with it.

    Meh, "flyball" pitcher is pushing it. I think he can miss some bats and improve his groundball percentage as he matures.

    He may have a middle rotation upside, but the Reds have very little pitching depth now.

    Yes he does have an upside obviously. Scares me too. And depth may be a problem. But most every team has that problem. Also, Marshall is brutal on lefties, including the Reds lefties. Won't have to face him any more at least for a year. I'm guessing Walt's not done. I'm going to plotz.

    So some of you folks are good with giving up more than a guy who came within an eyelash of pitching a perfect game against the Phillies in 2010 for a lefty reliever that the Reds have no shot in hell at signing beyond the one year on his contract. Yeah, thats brilliant.

    People overreact to struggles. Cliff Lee struggled like hell at times putting it together. My guess the Reds soured on Wood after last year. I thought alot of Woods problems were just youth and lack of confidence. The league adjusted to him some and he got a bit flustered. Wouldn't be the first or last young pitcher to have that happen.

    How do you know it's a one year rental, maybe they get a contract extension done...

    You have to give quality to get quality. Marshall has been, arguably, the best reliever in baseball for the past two seasons. He wasn't coming cheaply.

    Besides the jury is still out on Travis Wood. He seems like a nice guy and I wish him well. But his being a successful major league pitcher isn't a given by any means.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Len Barker pitched a perfect game...what is your point? How do you know the Reds have no shot, have you spoken with Walt?
