    I this makes the Reds kind of interesting.

    They're gonna score a lot of runs.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
