The Nats are dealing!

    Gotta me more going on here.

    Seems pretty one-sided ... in favor of the nats.

    it is funny to think the reds may actually believe they are 'a bullpen' away from contending.

    what a joke.

    oh yeah, me too. love the way krivsky's staffing his team with ex-twins like milton, lohse and castro. great moves! ::) ;)

    he didn't get milton, that was dan o'brien

    his major moves this year were arroyo for wily mo pena, and david ross and brandon phillips for two bags of balls

    and if you've watched the reds team in teh field, you'd know why castro was a good deal. he's not there as a starter, he's in cincy to be a defensive replacement

    This is obviously a precursor to Guillen getting shipped out of D.C.

    If the Reds had a pen, they would have taken 2 of 3 from Milwaukee and split with Atlanta. Instead they go 1-6 in that span.

    Yes, they are a bullpen away from contending.
  6. Someone help me out. From what I can tell Austin has 3 more arbitration years left and Lopez has 2? Is this correct?

    FYI: As a Nats fan I am going out of my mind with this deal. What a steal.

    I congratulate the Reds for going after the Cardinals. Majewski will help as setup man for Guardado. But Moddy, be happy. Kearns is loaded with ability he hasn't yet shown. Maybe Frank Robby can bring it out of him. I actually believe the trade helps both teams.

    for what? the wildcard spot?

    FH ... tell me you're kidding.

    they are a 75 win team. no shot, whatsoever at the WC. not even if a rod dropped in their laps tomorrow.

    Frank always liked Kearns. I remember a couple of winter meetings ago when his name came up in possible trade talks, and he was all for it.

    Might even wake him up from his nap, this news. :eek:

    Yes, they have a hell of a shot at the WC.

    No one thinks that Clayton starts at short with Freel doing his part-time 2B-OF gig? Isn't Freel banged up?

    The Reds think they can contend; I think they'll fade to fourth when it's said and done. Either way, their bullpen stinks real bad. This move helps a little, but methinks they overpaid. Badly.

    That said, it's good news for the Nats, especially if Wagner ever comes around. Kearns, however, will max out at 20-25 homers in that canyon of a ballpark.

    Soriano would hit 40 there if he plays all year.
