    You said he'd win a Cy Young in Toronto. You were wrong.

    The head scratcher I see right now is Casey Megehee for Chad Qualls
    He might be an incredibly small upgrade to Ondrusek and a hurt Bray. I would take Simon and Arredondo over him without thinking about it though. JJ hoover for that matter too.

    My quick opinion: 1) Possibly an overpay, and 2) I don't particularly care. I don't think Joseph is destined to be an elite major-league closer or setup guy, and I can't remember the last time a team seriously regretted trading a 24-year-old minor-league future middle reliever. I'm sure it's happened, but the odds are in the Reds' favor here.

    You don't have any posts in the 'I was wrong about...' thread.
    "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."

    Carry on.

    Meh, it was my initial reaction to the trade. Carry on doing what you do.

    No matter how mediocre Stewart continues to be, you don't think you may have been incorrect?

    The Reds weren't even sure Stewart would cut it as a starter. Just because you thought he would be a future Cy Young candidate doesn't mean the Reds shared your optimism. It could just be that the Reds weren't as high on him, and if that's the case, he's done nothing to really make that seem silly. At what point do you concede that Stewart has not lived up to your expectations, and maybe the Reds didn't overpay because your expectations were way too high?

    before I get to work. My wife might say I'm not very good at that.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    As for the trade? I like it. It was just a couple of weeks ago where it was seeming like the BP was wearing thin. This helps now IMO.

    Wow.
    You thought that Stewart was our #1 prospect. Obviously the Reds thought differently.

    The only guy that ended up having value was EdE as a DH.
    Stewart might eventually make something out of himself, but it's not looking good now

    You've never said what a "Fair price" for Rolen would've been..
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I'm happy to wait and see. I have more questions about Broxton than regrets about Sulbaran and Joseph.
