I'm not advocating Pierre because of his defensive limitations, but this is NOT Wily Taveras or Corey Patterson. Excellent contact hitter over a relatively long career.
It's gonna be real hard to mix up the team chemistry with a trade, during this hot streak.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
Maybe we should get this guy? Could provide the boost needed at the top of the lineup?

A poster on the minor-league forum, 19braves77, lives in Pensacola and attends a lot of Blue Wahoos games. He just posted this:
Everybody hugging and shaking hands with Daniel in Pensacola after todays game. He has either been promoted or traded.
Tony was also told something is happening.....
Of course, Daniel would be Corcino and Tony would be Cingrani. Why does that unsettle me?

I think a deal of some kind has gone down - a poster in the game thread tonight said he was tweeted that a Victorino for Joseph and Lotzkar - perhaps more may be brewing up to change the deal a bit, someone else from Philly or more prospects or a change in prospects? Supposedly the deal is done in principle though just not announced yet. May be they are still working on other options but have a basic deal done if nothing else works out?
Well, it's either a blockbuster, difference-making deal. Or an overpay.

But I don't think Pierre is coming to the Reds because he can't play CF any more. Too bad, because he would be on base for Votto fairly frequently.
