So you read SoSH? The Overbay idea has been bounced around a lot on there. If not Dunn, I would definitely like to see Overbay in a sox uniform


I don't read SOSH actually, too many Red Sox fans at one time can be overwhelming for me :*) . But I'm not surprised the idea's been kicking around, as it would be a pretty perfect match.

At least we're mediocre by choice.

As long as we don't flat out give away players like the Mets seem to do, I'm fine with it. The Reds desperately need some contact hitters, as all of their power guys are strikeout prone, which really hurts the run production. I don't really want to trade Dunn, but if he won't be affordable anyways, I see no reason to not trade him. It's not like Cincy is going to be a contender within the next season or two. I do like their talent, but they can't seem to put it together consistently. That, and their overall pitching is terrible (bullpen, starters, and even middle relief).

I would try to get either a Sean Casey who's an OBP machine or Huff and offer Shoppach.


You realize Dunn leads the majors in walks going into today, right?

If you hate how Bellhorn grounds in to DPs, just wait until you get Casey. :-°

He's one of the greatest guys in the game, but he's slower than poop.

Why haven't they given up on Paul Wilson & Rich Ageoruilla?? Hey if the Rays could get rid of Zambrano last year maybe the Reds can get rid of Milton as well. :-o
Please help me out...
