    Didi - 297 avg, 367obp, 446 slg for an ops 810...which would have Didi as 3rd best offensive SS in NL this year. But he is cooling off quite a bit from his April start.

    Cozart = 250 avg, 275 obp (dude can't take a walk), 392 slg for an ops of 667 ops which is 7th best in NL.

    It fully appears Zack will get to 700 OPS and my bet is Didi ends up between 700-750 ops at the end of this year.

    Adam Dunn is off the interstate. .200/.309/.469/.778 with 21 HR. His HR last night was career Home Run number 427 which moved him past HOF Billy Williams and into a tie with Mike Piazza for 45th on the all time list. Next up are teammate Paul Konerko and HOF Cal Ripken. He might get those by the ALL Star Break.

    FWIW, Dunn is on the block and might be a real shot in the arm for some team. He had a horrid slow start, but over his last 30 days, he's been better than the old Adam Dunn with a line of .289/.420/.622/1.042 with 9 HR in 112 PAs. The Yankees should take a look at him with Texiera out and a need at 1B.

    Just bringing up Dunn to give the board something to really argue about during this cold spell for the Reds. If that doesn't work, maybe I'll start a Pete Rose thread.

    I wish him well.



    Nationals released 1B/OF Micah Owings.

    The 30-year-old was granted his release after opting out of his contract. Owings, who made the full-time transition to position player earlier this year, was batting .265/.305/.480 with eight home runs and a 71/10 K/BB ratio through 57 games with Triple-A Syracuse. It shouldn't be long before he latches on elsewhere.


    Per Rotoworld.

    Astros acquired INF Ronald Torreyes from the Cubs for cash considerations.
    "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."

    It looks like those cash considerations are international bonus pool dollars. Torreyes never really hit at the same level in the Cubs organization and still shows no pop. Still glad that there is less of a chance he tears it up in the Reds division. I really liked following "El Raton" as a propsect.

    It's not like Darwin Barney at second base was an unmovable block for Torreyes.
    The Astros have Altuve, who can hit a bit more.

    Not understanding the move.

    I'm guessing that the Astros figured Torreyes was a better investment than whatever the international signing dollars would get them.

    The trade between the Cubs and LA also involved international signing dollars (I think the Cubs gave up the $$, so I guess they replenished them with this trade).
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Didi is now at .280/.346/.407/.753. Figure the .SLG number will continue to fall.

    It appears Torreyes has entered the realm of minor league chaff. I know some on here are fans, but if he is being sold off like this, he doesn't have much value as a prospect anymore. Wish him the best, he is still young.

    I'm not sure if I interpret the Torreyes trade the same way you do.

    Torreyes still has elite contact skills and has great fielding ability and is an above average baserunner. I believe he still is valued as a prospect.

    I believe the Astros agree as well. The international bonus pool money has some value to teams, at least it does with Theo Epstein. Many have argued, and I may agree, that the international bonus pool money was the most valuable piece coming back for Feldman.

    Granted, Torreyes does not have the same value as Feldman, but I do not believe that hs is being viewed by the Cubs or Astros as minor league chaff.

    Fair point. I would ask though, who is the Reds best prospect that you would be comfortable with putting on sale for international pool money?
