From the Enquirer:

The Johnson move is not going to get fans excited, but more moves could be coming. The Red Sox are reportedly willing to part with veteran left-hander David Wells, who is 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA in five August starts.

“We’ve got a lot of things working,” Krivsky said.

Does anyone think trading for Wells is a good idea?

The longer Krivsky’s the GM of this team, the more he reminds me of Jim Bowden and his theory of “Sign ’em all, let the number of games they lose for the Reds sort ’em out!”

    David Wells? Why, is Denny Neagle not available?

    It’s a good idea if you want somebody to go 4 or 5 innings & give up 5 or 6 runs.

    Go with young guys who can actually throw. Somebody like Homer Bailey. That’s a move that would get fans excited.

    Bailey if he’s gonna give you 1967 vintage Gary Nolan numbers, sure… but if he’s just being “David Clyded” I’ll pass.

    As far as Krivskeys methods, I have no problem dealing the chaft from this organization to eat at the Buffet a little longer, note that word was “chaft” something Reds fans can’t hold onto with hope to watch blossom into anything of worth.

    I don’t see how Wells helps all that much. The Reds would probably have to give up a prospect for the priviledge of renting Wells for the remainder of the season.

    Would Wells help? Heck yeah he would… unless you like running Chris Michalak?
