CINCINNATI - Cincinnati Reds executive vice president and general manager Wayne Krivsky today announced the acquisition of LHP Matt Maloney from the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for RHP Kyle Lohse.

On paper this looks to have great possiblities - anyone know anything on Maloney other than what is listed? Anything beats losing Lohse to free agency and not getting anything in return.

Its not about getting a player actually... its 4 million off the books.

Another 9 million when Milton goes

And 8 million saved when they dont renew Dunn's contract

20 million will help alot

This looks like a decent trade to me based on this guys minor league numbers. Back to the Cantu trade, I still don't like the fact we gave up Medlock. Now we need to make a move to free up a roster spot for Joey Votto. We have to play him this year and see what we have here before spring training. I mean, maybe we trade both Conine and Hatteberg for minor league pitchers like this Maloney and we go with Votto and Cantu at first the rest of this season? Anyone think that is just rediculous to consider? Don't get me wrong, I love Hatte but we have to promote Votto soon, he has earned it by his play at AAA.

He looks like another Belisle: ERA with no runners on base is 1.02. ERA with runners on base is 7.69. ERA with runners in scoring position is 11.61.

With this trade and Harang missing a start, do we finally get to see Phil Dumatrait up here?

It should come as no surprise to see Lohse traded. Better to get a good pitching prospect now than losing Lohse in free agency with nothing in return. I wonder who will start now tomorrow against Washington? I know Lohse was the scheduled starter.

So, now what does this leave for us as Lohse was to pitch Tuesday vs Nationals. Is Homer ready? Whom else is getting the call.

Krivsky said Bobby Livingston will start tomorrow.
