That would really suck for Leake (for him) to start back in Triple-A.
99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
Bailey CYA winner
Hamilton ROY & GG

In my lifetime, I can't recall a more exciting time to be a Reds fan than right now.
This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.
If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

#Dbacks Towers says Gregorious is one of "premier shortstops in baseball." "We think we're a better ballclub today and in the future..."
I'm blown away by Walt's ability to surprise by exceeding expectations. Feels good to be a Reds fan right now.
This ain't signing Eric Milton just to say you've done something.
No Victims, by me.

I may be the only one, but I wouldn't mind seeing Walt deal a little of the "surplus" for a youngster with upside (and controlable years) - maybe a young 3B or corner OFer - a young starter or high-leverage bullpen arm might be nice too.
Indians will be sending reds $3.5MM as well.
So the Reds can win the WS with Choo in CF and Ludwick in LF this year, then trade Leake, Ludwick and a prospect for Upton in the offseason. Plug him at LF alongside Hamilton and Bruce, and go for the 3-peat!
Rosenthal also just said on Twitter that Indians are sending ~$3.5 million to the Reds to account for the difference between Choo and Stubbs' salaries. Wow.
