    At least that's how I rationalize it.
    Possibly. Making last year 72... And 2013 1973? Which Red will punch Bud Harrelson?

    Asian television is just better than Western television.

    It just is.

    My heart stopped when I read somewhere (Red Reporter?) that the trade included Homer. I'm thrilled that Walt made the trade. Kind of deal he made in StL. No more do we trade for junk. Solid move.

    Not a fan of the trade. Not near as confident in Cozart as a long term solution at SS that most on here are. Have my doubts about Fraizer at 3B as well.

    I'll have to "Choo" on this one for awhile.

    Towers said Gregorius reminds him "of a young Derek Jeter."

    with all his "potential," Drew had to go. I'm just amazed that Cleveland wanted him. Maybe the change of leagues will help. Choo for $4.9 million is a steal. Cozart will be fine and Frazier proved his worth this year. If not, I have faith in Walt to make moves to correct any situation. No longer will we be waiting on some prospect to step up. We're ready.

    Choo will get a raise in arb to 7-8 mil. The Reds supposedly got 3.5 mil from the Indians to cover the difference between Stubbs and Choo's salaries.

    A major hole filled without dealing away one piece of our surplus of starting pitching.

    This is Freaking A Awesome!

    FWIW, judging by D-Back message board responses, they (D-Back fans) are not happy about dealing away Bauer for Gregorius, as they're not convinced that Gregorius will hit at the MLB level.

    We'll see.

    Holy crap!

    I logged into check my email and see "Reds acquire..." and I was about to yawn and delete it until I saw the name involved. WOW.

    Last offseason we got Latos, Marshall, and Madson. This offseason is off to a pretty good start as well.

    How about Mike Leake to the Red Sox for Bryce Brentz (I'd even toss in Ondrusek)?

    Or our future starters. I thought we'd lose one of Corcino or Cingrani at the very least to fill holes.

    I like Gregorius. But I'm not convinced he'll hit at the big-league level either- at least not for another season or two.
