Reds Unlikely To Make Deal By Deadline

There's a "very good chance" the Reds don't make a trade by Saturday's deadline, GM Walt Jocketty told John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Jocketty acknowledged that he's still looking for a veteran reliever, but he already acquired protection by signing free agents Russ Springer and Jason Isringhausen.  Jocketty doesn't appear to be pursuing offensive help.

Jocketty always says this.

then comes out of no where and and acquires a guy like scott rolen(twice).

For some reason I get the feeling the Jocketty won’t do anything unless the cardinals make a splash.

or sending Griffey off to Chicago. Something will happen. As you said, it always does.

Reds are playing young guys they have to be patient with in spite of low averages or high era’s. Bruce, Stubbs, Masset, Heisy etc. They also have vets make big bucks like Harang, and Cordero that they can’t give away. They’ll make a run with the guys they have and bring up Izzy, Springer and Chapman (to give him a taste of a pennant race), but there isn’t anybody out there aside from Soria worth overpaying for.

The Reds aren’t good enough to win without a few additions. They could use a LF bat, outside of May Gomes has been very ordinary, and a RP perhaps even a closer.

Soria Podsednik wouldn’t be bad, but I’d prefer the OF to have some more power.

Dickerson is doing very well on hi rehab assignment. He might be up soon if Giomes continues to struggle.

LF bat??? JFYI…Gomes is having as good a season as MIL’s Ryan Braun…(The NL’s starting LF in the All Star game)…And is on track for a 25HR/30DB/100RBI yr…all for less than $1M.

I’ll take that all day long & twice on SUN’s.

if you look deeper you’ll see that outside of May he’s been a .240/.300/.400 slash line player with poor defense and some power.

There is a reason he’s been a minor league contract guy the last two years.

After 102 games, the Reds are tied for first!

They’re plenty good enough to win this division as currently constructed.

I suspect the “unlikely to make a deal” line is to bring the price tag down, on the player Walt is after…
