Most of this was recently posted on Lance McAlister’s blog (I’ve added some numbers and some of Lance’s numbers might be a bit off b/c of the delay in posting this): Louisville Bats/International League rankings BA .249 (13th of 14) Runs 377 (14th) OBP .313 (13th) SLG .370 (13th) OPS .683 (14th) BB 264 (12th) […]

I’m not sure if you’ve heard or not, but the Reds made a pretty big trade over the weekend, and people disagree strongly on the question of whether or not it was a good deal. Some people don’t think Mat Latos is good enough to merit the cost the Reds paid to acquire him, some […]

According to several sources on twitter, the Reds have traded 1B Yonder Alonso to the San Diego Padres for pitcher Mat Latos.  Latos went 9-14 last season with a 3.47 ERA and 185 strikeouts.  He was 14-10 in 2010 with a 2.92 ERA and 189 strikeouts. So the Reds add another starting pitcher to the […]

But I don’t want to just go flailing and suggest, for instance, that the Reds should trade Drew Stubbs, Homer Bailey, […]

Some of you have referenced the piece in the comments already, but over at the Enquirer, John Fay decided to play GM. The moves he suggests basically boil down to this: 1. Thank CoCo Cordero and tell him you won’t be making any more offers. 2. Sign Josh Willingham to play LF. 3. Package Yonder […]

We talked recently about the sentiment that Brad Boxberger may be in the mix for the Opening Day bullpen. Thanks to our friends over at Redlegs Review, I see that ESPN’s Keith Law is on the same page: “I expect to see Cincinnati Reds right-hander Brad Boxberger in their big league pen in 2012; he […]

John Fay thinks Brad Boxberger’s MLB ETA may be Opening Day 2011: But Boxberger is probably the player with no big-league experience who has the best chance to make the Reds out of spring training. We’re basing that on three things: (1) The Reds are going to need bullpen help; (2) Boxberger has top-shelf stuff; […]
