    Reds trade Juan Francisco to Braves for RHP J.J. Hoover

    From the Reds twitter:

    #Reds acquire from Braves RHP J.J. Hoover in exchange for IF Juan Francisco. Hoover assigned to Louisville.

    https://twitter.com/#!/Reds
    Incredibly stupid move by the Reds

    Counting on Rolen to stay healthy is beyond crazy

    Frasier as a backup is crazy too

    The Brave will use Francisco to replace Chipper next season

    Who the hell are the Reds going to replace Rolen with come this May when he is hurt again


    Would have been much better to avoid the options/roster issue by trading Homer

    Cairo and Frazier. Cairo's done his part these last few seasons (could be a regular starter if we asked him to), and Frazier is ready to be our utility guy with power.

    Why's it stupid? Francisco has a long way to go. If Rolen gets hurt, there's nobody on the Reds' roster that can replace him offensively and defensively. All of the alternatives have flaws.

    Francisco's having a poor spring after coming into camp out of shape. Maybe the Reds were just tired of waiting for it to click with him? In return, the Reds get a pretty decent pitching prospect who hopefully can contribute in the bullpen later this year.

    Well, now we're down to 2 left handed hitters.

    Stubbs adds significant value defensively and in terms of speed.

    his record suggests he'll strike out a ton of guys -- 24 years old -- could be worth a shot

    Juan is an all or nothing prospect - IMHO -- more likely not the long term answer

    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    Exactly, I'll take Frazier and his superior defense, versatility, and overall readiness to hit big league pitching. The last thing the Reds need is a power bat that can't hit breaking pitches and will strike out 150-200 times in a full season.

    I don't understand why anybody would be high on Francisco and have given up on Frazier.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    Much like how you contribute nothing to the conversation here other than amusing me with your foolish remarks?
