    He could be had because he's the D'Back's 4th outfielder.

"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."

    That's why I said OMG. Redszone always favors guys like Dickerson, Encarnacion, Denorfia, and many others. None of them are the answer.

    Arredondo getting squeezed this inning, but alot of it is still of his own doing.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    And, hold on to your hats, it looks like Chris is also on the DL in the minors.

    Except he has 92 PAs. Who would the D-Backs want that the Reds could deal?

    Not sure. When the Nationals were rumored to have interest the name floated to go to Arizona was John Lannan.

    And a lifetime .731 OPS. I'd offer Votto, Bruce and Chapman autographed balls for him and see how they respond
