    Still wondering whether this is all an elaborate hoax perpetrated by the dastardly HammerTime.
    Same. This is the first time in I don't know how long is that I've seen a headline about a Reds deal come across and thought, "Wow, how did they pull THAT one off??"

    I would think Winker would have a lot of value, particularly to an AL team that can DH him and hide his defensive shortcomings. With his injury and Riggleman's goofy outfield rotation we didn't get to completely see just how good a hitter that he is. He could maybe allow them to hang on to Senzel, Trammel or India if they trade for a number 1. Of course, they might be able to spin Kemp to a contender if they'd rather keep their young guys. Solid deal for the Reds and the Dodgers pick up a couple of nice prospects and some luxury tax relief.

    Goodness that lineup....

    Peraza
    Scooter
    Votto
    Puig
    Suarez
    Kemp
    Winker/Schebler
    Barnhart

    If they go out and bring Kluber or Keuchel in, this team is legit.

    Puig in GABP is going to be insane. He stays healthy and I see 40 HRs in his future.

    Maybe. He’s a head case. I can’t imagine he will be happy playing for the Reds.

    He’s reunited with his battting coach with whom he has a great relationship.

    Also don't minimize the Cuba connection with Iglesias.

    "I've been around both those guys for the past three years," Ward said. "Puig is going to bring some excitement to the club and the Cincinnati fans are going to really appreciate him. He's going to give it all he's got. I just got off the phone with him a few minutes ago, he's so pumped and fired up about coming. Matt Kemp, again, he was an All-Star, he's an impact bat. We're surrounding guys with the type of offense that the Reds have right now, we're going to have an offensive team that can do a lot of damage.

    Reds add Puig, Kemp and Wood in trade with Dodgers for Homer BaileyReds add Puig, Kemp and Wood in Dodgers trade

    I stand corrected. That should definitely make Cincinnati more appealing than LA...

    Downs is a future all star but Reds fans are ready for some form of a competitor.

    He needs to get to 30 first, for the first time in his career lol. I love seeing the city pumped up after years of losing.
