Well, it’s been an interesting week, hasn’t it? Use this thread to discuss whatever you want. There are some interesting games on the schedule that have a bearing on the Reds (division and wild card), so feel free to discuss them here.
Shawn has an interesting post that might stimulate some discussion, as well; he lists some tweaks he’d like to see the Reds make at this point. Getting rid of Mays would be a good first start.
Also, take a look at another superb post by Brian at Baseball Minutia about “The Power of Tradition.”
So, what’s on your mind? Now that it’s obvious the trade won’t be rescinded, what should the Reds do to improve between now and the end of July? What rumors are out there? Who is available, and who would you like to see the Reds seek?
Someone mentioned John Smoltz in last night’s game thread; what do you think?
