Reds pushing for Bedard hard?

Recommended Posts

First off ths is my first post and I am a Reds fan who loves the game of baseball.I visit other teams boards like the hangout here to see what other teams are thinking.But let me tell you I think the hangout is the best BB board around for just bb talk or trade talk.I love this board so far.

Now lets get ot the meat of my post.I am hearing that the Reds and the O's are very close on a Bedard trade.I have heard that it will be Cueto,Votto,Janish or Loo,Stubbs,and another minor leaguer (but not sure of who it is) for Bedard and a reliever(wasnt gave the name).Now take this how you will because I am in no way or claim to be a insider.I came by my info in a weird way.I am a co-founder of a UK bb message board and have ties close to some boosters from the Lexington area.As you may know Lexington is only about a hour or so from Cincinnati and a couple of my booster friends are from the Cincinnati/Fort Mitchell area.They also have insight in the Reds offices aswell.They are season ticket holders and big dollar guys around the ball club.Infact the guy that told me my info is close frineds with a couple guys close to WK.So while I was trying to talk UK BB and recruiting me and my guy starting talking Reds BB.He told me that he heard a trade couple happen as soon as this evening or tomorrow.But he did say that they were deep into conversations about doing the trade.

Now take this how you will because I am UK BB insider and I am not a baseball insider.I decided to post what I heard to see if any of your insiders here as heard about this.So if PEace,Belkast,or any other insiders who may have heard this could post back I would greatly appreciate it.

By the way I think it would be a great trade both ways if it does happen.

Agreed. We'd get a ton of young players (w/ a ton of upside) and you guys would be getting one hell of a pitcher. Don't let the lack of 200 innings fool you. Bedard might not have pitched the entire season last year, but he still set the O's record for strikeouts in a season. And considering the amount of talent we've had on the mound down through the years, that's saying a lot.

Here's hoping the O's and Reds can work something out.

Also, welcome aboard. :)

I could live with that.

Tonight or tomorrow eh? I'm starting to think this whole thing has just been an elaborate plot to get me to do poorly on my finals. Of course tomorrow is my last one, so with that in mind they'll make the trade tonight.

as far as the trade itself, I'm indifferent between Cueto and Bailey, so either is fine. In the absence of Bruce, Votto is a must. That trade strikes me as very even, and very beneficial to our future. I'd be happy.

Cueto,Votto,Janish or Loo,Stubbs,and another minor leaguer (but not sure of who it is) for Bedard and a reliever(wasnt gave the name)

Not a fan of Janish...he's all defense. Loo is 21 and in the GCL?? Stubbs is a free swinger.

I do like Cueto and Votto being the headliners. But what about Maloney (SP), Francisco (3B), Frazer (SS/3B), or Valaika (SS)?

Edit: Take out Frazier, he is a 2007 draftee

    • A little short on job title, but as a grateful longtime reader from back in the day, noticed this in Szymborski's chat today. SEA is one of those teams gotta fight past for AL top 6 in the shorter term. 1:06 Josh R: Noticed this in a transactions list :                                      Mariners Named Dave Cameron senior director, player procurement,                                                 Is this the former FanGraphs Dave Cameron?     1:06  Dan Szymborski: Yes     1:06  Dan Szymborski: (Sorry, was making sure he made it official or I couldn’t say anything)     1:06  Dan Szymborski:     Dave Cameron @OneDaveCameron     I should probably mention this now that it’s official. I get to do some really cool stuff for the @Mariners going forward. Quite a journey from @ussmariner (or asbs-m for us extra old people) to now. I couldn’t be more excited. Sincere thank you to all.
    • It'll be a bad year if the team's competitive situation doesn't put Elias or whoever to a possibly tough decision here. "Controlling the competitive environment" only gets publicized as a virtue for teams doing the stuff of Elias' first four years.     Teams like the Dodgers and Astros earn that privilege with their excellence - these Orioles aren't there yet. Grayson should pitch the 3rd or 4th game of the year, and pitch as well as he can for 20-ish turns.    Then see where we are.     Maybe we trade him then for Burnes and Woodruff and Devin Williams, Milwaukee can let him rest up for next year.
    • Its certainly possible Gunnar's home is shortstop.     The Orioles aren't going to say openly if they have intellectual capital like the cumulative wear and tear of manning SS is known precisely enough it'd be an inefficient use of Gunnar's joints (Royce Lewis' have taken some bumps), and that's why he didn't get to have an everyday SS job in the minor leagues. But they have to play somebody in the major leagues regularly next season, so any developmental guardrails will have to be taken off.     MLB teams seldom platoon shortstops - for me they are like quarterbacks, if you have two, you have none. I'm still on the Occam's razor of shortstops play shortstop (watching you Jackson Holliday in 2023), and almost every pro caliber position player on their Little League, high school, and A-ball teams is the shortstop.   They can't all be Cal Ripken or Ozzie Smith even though the confidence helping them to the Show tells them they probably are. Holliday and Carter Young will probably be teammates for some of 2023 - could be like the Westburg and Gunnar show all over again.
    • I certainly agree that if he follows typical patterns, he’ll have to do most of his damage in the first 4-5 years.   And as I said already, he would have to stay relatively healthy.  That’s often the problem with guys who decline steeply in the back half of their careers.  Judge has only had three fully healthy seasons.
    • Roxette had 4 BillBoard No. 1 hits?!  Who'd a thunk it.
    • They let Hall increase his IP by 65, but you think they’ll only let Grayson increase by 25-35?   I’ll be surprised if they’re that conservative.
