What they really need is a new pitching staff.


That's true but getting rid of the guy who signed Eric Milton to a $25MM contract and traded for Ramon Ortiz is a step in the right direction. Just saying those names makes me ill

Getting rid of Milton may be as easy. :-B

I find that hard to believe, and I am even trying to believe it.

Who exactly would want him at that ridiculous price?

The Reds would definately have to throw in some cash to move him.

Maybe he could be useful somewhere like Petco where all the flyballs he puts into play don't glide over the fences, and with an excellent centrefielder to flag them down.
