    Valdez has pretty much been the perfect backup middle infielder (and did great filling in at CF when the Reds needed him to)
    Now I get your point. LOL.

    Frazier's fiance just referred to Todd as "getting a homerun."

    maybe she was talking about something else
    "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."

    Walt says team chemistry effected the FO's decisions not to pull of a big deal "a lot", along with the interest in the Reds future. Says he and his staff were holed up in a Colorado hotel working on things.

    Walt said they had an opportunity to do better deals but was concerned about the amount of young talent they had to give up..
    He also mentioned chemistry, but Thom prompted him with that in the question.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Sounds like they were working on a few bigger deals.

    The bigger deals probably included people like DiDi or Hamilton.

    Walt lists Ondrusek as being part of the backend of the bullpen.

    Walt says Broxton will be used in the 8th and close on days that Chapman not available.

    Said he looked at all areas to improve the team.. leadoff, cleanup, rotation.. bullpen seemed the best optoin


    Homer gives up a 3 run hr

    Future, present, chemistry, it's all good.I'm glad the GM weighs these things heavily, maybe not equally but they all need to be considered.

    Maybin smokes one then stops at 2nd thinking its a GR double. I'm starting to think he's a bit of a brain-donor.

    walt was asked if they would consider moving chapman into the rotation and broxton close..

    Walt said they haven't thought about it, and at this time, it would be hard to stretch out Chapman.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
