WE NEED A LEAD-OFF HITTER...................
1.) Atlanta needs a pitcher... Bronson Arroyo and Drew Stubbs for Bourn or Heyward?
2.) Philadelphia needs a pitcher... Bronson Arroyo and Drew Stubbs for Victorna.
3.) Minnesota needs everything... Bronson Arroyo / Drew Stubbs / Ryan Hanigan / Sam LeCure
and Bill Bray for Revere OF / Mauer C and a minor league pitcher ( Good Pitcher)
* Don't make another Mat Latos trade ( Almost as bad as Josh Hamilton /Frank Roberson Trade )
I think you're the only troll on this board that doesn't like the Latos trade.
And why would you want to trade Arroyo?
The Reds have signed left-hander Will Ohman, according to Assistant Director of Media Relations Jamie Ramsey (via Twitter). The 34-year-old will report to Triple-A Louisville.
Ohman was released by the White Sox earlier this month after being designated for assignment. In 26 2/3 innings for Chicago, Ohman posted a 6.41 ERA with 4.4 K/9 and 1.7 BB/9. The veteran likely came to the Reds at a reasonable rate as he will collect on the $2.5MM owed to him on the backend of his two-year deal from the ChiSox.
Still acquiring cast off pitching. Why get rid of Arroyo? He st.inks for what he's getting paid. But even if he didn't have that virtual no-trade contract, nobody would be interested in taking over his $12 M salary. Old CW: Bailey as trade bait. New CW: Bailey is the #2 SP in the rotation. Regardless, we are in no position to deal ANY SP.
Signing left-hander Ohman is probably more of a sign of the status of Bill Bray than anything else. The Reds just want to have another LHP available in case they really, really need one.
From what I've seen, every team signs guys off the scrap heap.
They traded the MVP " Josh Hamilton for a so so pitcher. WHAT ELSE DID THEY GET? Before the Big Red Machine the Reds traded another MVP " Frank Robinson " for another so so
pitcher and WHAT ELSE DID THEY GET?
With the Latos trade our team gave away the company store........... DUH
READ WHAT I SAID, don't make ANOTHER MISTAKE, OK.
I want the REDS to win, NOT LIKE YOU AND DUSTY
