For Homer Bailey
Clearing some money and room to make a run at Harper....
Here's the full trade
I this makes the Reds kind of interesting.
They're gonna score a lot of runs.
Certainly puts the Reds back on the map.
homer bailey is set to be released. i don’t know how much i like this trade
How much money are they saving taking on Homers big ass contract
Hint: you shouldnt. Because I love it.
fuck yes. we have legitimate stars again. Going to Reds games will be fun again...at least for now
Just eyeballing some of the names the Reds got, a good number. I am on the can so I can’t crunch what the likely arb numbers are gonna be atm
It will sure be interesting to see how this plays out. Cincy now has 6 corner outfielders, so there may still be another deal in the works. Bailey isn't going to help the Dodgers but he sho-nuff wasn't gonna pitch for the Reds.
Good for you Cincy.
I made a thread in Reds forum but mods feel free to merge here.
Yeah, Kemp is at the end of his career but we have prospects in the minors. We need to bring them up in the next year or two. Buying time with a vet isnt the end of the world. Puig, I like. The bat, help in the OF rotation since Billy' gone.....Schlebler or Winker probably going to be trade bait with Cleveland for Kluber is my guess.
Adding Wood's arm and ditching Bailey and his contract is a win win win win for us. A short term fix, but he and Roark, plus hopefully Kluber, Reds look respectable suddenly.
This buys us competitiveness and some time as we bring our key prospects along. Senzel, Trammel, Greene.
Hello 5th place Pirates!
“Look at the Oakland [Athletics] this year, they started the season with the lowest payroll in all of Major League Baseball and they ended up winning 98 games.”
NL Central gonna be a blast to watch between us, MIL, CHI and STL now. Should be a very very stout division.
Clearing space for Harper
F**k Frank Coonelly...
Seriously this deal would get nixed by all Fantasy GM's.
The only thought is they are freeing up the money for Harper and/or Machado?
If Kemp wasn't involved that would have been a dream deal for the Braves. Getting their RF and another SP.
What happens when Harper doesnt sign?
It's amazing how close this team was to being a legit contender, and add in the money saved from Nova, Freese and Harrison that could be used to make the team better. Now we're starring down a $75 million payroll on a team with legit problems in a "contending" year while the president brags about how many games the AL Wild Card losers won with a low salary.
What a fucking joke.
