    I need somebody to rebut this tweet from Mancuso for me right now before I buy World Series tickets.

    “Sounds to me like they’re paying for a starting CF. Is Senzel for Lindor the next shoe to drop? Would explain Cleveland delay on Lindor.”
    "In our sundown perambulations of late through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base,' a certain game of ball. We wish such sights were more common among us...The game of ball is glorious..." -Walt Whitman, 1846

    That's exactly what I just mentioned to my brother. His response was "to keep on dreaming, that's what I'm good at."

    Reds in agreement with Akiyama per Sherman. He referenced Heyman but seems like separate info.

    He just throwing random crap against the wall.

    Everything I've read suggests he's a corner OF nowadays.

    Most likely roster casualty if/when they sign him? Nick Martini in my opinion.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    I tend to think a Senzel trade is the next move too. I imagine publicly they'll say they see Shogo in a corner spot with Winker/Aquino platoon in the other but given what we've heard about their aims it seems entirely likely that Senzel is traded for a bigger piece.

    Well now I'm highly intrigued to see if a big trade involving a Reds OF is around the corner. If not we have a pretty good 1-5 OF group in Winker, Senzel, Aquino, Akiyama, and Ervin.

    Do you really think they'd trade Senzel while he's injured? That'd be selling low on him. I tend to think they won't trade him before Spring Training

    I’ve been hounding the #Reds about Japanese players for about 13 years. They finally signed one who was born in the same city where I went to high school, Yokosuka, Japan. Those 3 years of Japanese will finally come in handy. (My Japanese history minor may or may not)

    I think they'd trade him in the right deal(for a stud SS) but they certainly wouldn't give him up for pennies on the dollar.

    Curious...how does .301 .376 .454 .829 in the NPB translate to MLB?

    From CTrent Twitter:

    #Reds see Akiyama as someone who can hit atop the order and play all three outfield spots — not solely as a CF
