Trade: Denorfia to Oakland for 2 PTBNLs

The Reds traded outfielder Chris Denorfia to Oakland for two players to be named later and cash and cash. Denorfia, the 28-year-old outfielder, is coming off Tommy John surgery and isn't expected to play until October.

The deal was in works in spring training, Wayne Krivsky said, then Denorfia got hurt.

The A's called about two weeks ago and said they were still interested.

"We're hoping it's a win-win," Krivsky said. "Deno is tremendous individual with great makeup."

Maybe Burton is coming back to Cincinnati

I asked. Krivsky said Burton is not involved in the deal.

I thought that players on the DL couldn't be traded, even if it's the 60-day DL (which Denorfia is on.)

Then it has to be a trade, I hope the cash recieved in the A's deal will increase the chance of landing a quality player

Milton sure was taken out early, even for him.

Could it be that he has been traded?

What am I missing
Coffey gets his salary doubled after the start he's had-I better
really start to mess up at work

and Dunn-what happened to the new
Adam Dunn? Two more strike outs so far tonight-bat the guy in the 9th position-I have more confidence
in our pitchers hitting than I do AD-

Thank you Josh Hamilton for being a bright light

This year already has a familiar ring-Dunn leads the league in strike outs, Griffey's out, and
the bullpen sucks-thank goodness that Hamilton is there

Why is Dunn still in this game?

His dogging it in left cost a double.

So much for Narron cracking the whip.

I know Old School, that's bologna. John, if you read this....please, please, please ask Narron why he didn't pull Dunn after he let Jack Wilson get a double in the 5th!!!

When asked about Phillips lack of hustle out of the box last week, Narron said no double standard for his players. Well, it sucks being a fan and getting lied to.

Not sure even they understand the formula, but Welsh is much better since ... and when ... he works with Thom Brennaman.

I think you need to give Wilson more credit for that double than blame on Dunn.

Dunn needs to field the ball and can't watch a runner going to first. Wilson ran slowly to first (maybe to deek Dunn). Did Hatteberg yell 'runner' or '2nd'? Did Dunn charge the ball (not sure)?

I think Wilson could do that on a lot of left fielders.

just my 2 cents.
