    Pierre would be a fine addition. Not sure why the hate for him.

    He gets on base, lifetime .346 OBP, .338 the last three years, .355 this season.

    And he would't cost much in terms of prospects.

    "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."

    Was just going to post the same thing. Team is starving for OBP, he is at .344 since start of 2009. Numbers compare well to DeJesus, who is on everyone's Christmas (in July) list.

    You know after you posted this I went and looked and saw his stats. You are right he is not a crappy as I thought. I think the issue has always been that his contract with LA was so high and for the money he was seen as an underachiever esp at first. Not great but could serve a role at the top of the order.

    Pierre isn't an ideal guy, but at this point I will accept anyone who can actually get on base in front of Joey Votto.

    Pierre hasn't played any centerfield (the position where we most need an upgrade) since 2009, and his arm is a wet noodle.

    He's having a bit of a down year thus far, but I think I'd rather have Victorino.

    As compared with the Reds' lead off hitter OBP so far this year of .241.

    Victorino would cost a lot more in prospects and isn't having a good year.

    I'd be concerned about giving up a lot of good prospects for Victorino at this stage of his career given his numbers this year.
