No deals II

We're going to talk to Wayne Krivsky in a bit. I don't think he'll shed a lot of light on what happened.

As for Phil Dumatrait, I wouldn't be stunned if he starts Thursday. I talked to Elizardo Ramirez he said his shoulder still bothers him from time to time.

On Trent's blog, he says Bellhorn would be a filler until Thursday (for Dumatrait)....

Do you think we would go with 13 pitchers?

Who would go down when Josh Hamilton comes back?

What happened is the same thing that's happened all year. The Reds are straddled with hefty contracts for players that aren't worth it. Krivsky could have either traded them and received barely anything in return or hold on to them and hope for something in August after they clear waivers or in the off-season. Either way he'll irritate the fans, so he's best just hanging in there hoping for a decent deal down the road.

Let's face it, when you are rooting for a losing team it really doesn't matter much what moves are or are not made we would be giving Krivsky hell if he made some moves and we're giving him hell for not making any moves.

There's only one way to make the fans happy and that's to win ballgames.

Does anyone recall the crazy contracts free agent pitchers were getting last off season? Trust me, we got Arroyo at under market money. You don't make that trade unless the other team is willing to give up way too much. I guess the Braves weren't that desperate or that stupid.

Let's see some young pitchers up here now and see what they can do for us in the years to come.
