What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Just to let you know one of my friends who works for the Reds organization said that the Rangers had sent scouts to Ceutos last two starts and vice versa the Reds scouts he said were looking at profar Neil ramirez and scheppers. He also said that another player was being looked at but he couldn't remember who. He said single a tho.
What???? Are you messing with us??? DO IT J.D.
Dc would get his wish! This makes sense because the reds have so much pitching depth
So are they sorting out the details or just talking?
I wish they could get Cueto and Drew Stubbs to play CF. One can dream, can't he?
Why would Cincinnati trade one of their better starting pitchers when they're in contention for the NL Central title?
Because we need him more, Joey! :)
Thinking Positively, you are probably just a troll.............
hahaha in your trade deadline 2011 forum: Reds: they aren't trading ceuto
CIN is only 3 games in the Loss column behind MIL on 29 June. They aren't trading Cuedo.
Why would your friend who allegedly works for CIN tell you what his company is planning to do? He must not like his job very much.
Same troll who floated the Josh Johnson rumor.
yeah, joey, just rename this forum "Troll Crushes DC's dreams and laughs"
the rangers need them some chunky Predator!
Much love to Garrett for knowing my mad man crush on cueto though.
Haha no kidding dc, whoever this troll is seriously needs to get a life
So...if scouts are sent to see a player, then OBVIOUSLY a trade is fixing to happen? Considering how often scouts go see players around the league, I'm surprised there aren't more trades!!!
I'm not a trolll. I'm just letting you know what he told me. Believe me or not.I don't know specifics because he didn't tell me any. All I know is what I put down. The reason Cincinnati wants to trade him is apparently he got in a few arguments with both the manager and pitching coach.
The thing that grates is that it's a secret that only he is privy to because he knows someone on the inside - it's just a low form of name-dropping. It very well could be that Texas is scouting Cincy - and maybe even Cueto - but that could be 100% on Texas. It means nothing. But I suspect Texas is busy scouting real targets.
If they pull a deal for Cueto in July, I guess we all owe this guy an apology. Let's hope we have to apologize! And like I said - make sure we get Stubbs, too, in the deal.
seriously though, just to understand the gravity of the situation. Cueto is a hoss. He's the exact equivelant of CJ. Prior to this, i was starting to contemplate playoffs if we stand pat, I do belive we have a guy in CJ that can get us two wins when needed ala Lee last year. They'll be harder wins, and of course we'll have to shore up the BP because CJ isnt going to pitch into the 8th and 9th each time. so i was willing to accept maybe with CJ, Colby in playoff form and the rest, we could atleast take the ALDS.
However you add Cueto in the mix, and man... now we have two pitchers that can get you those two wins. especially from transition of ALDS to ALCS if it goes 5 and CJ has to be used. Cueto becomes the man.
My only concearn w Cueto is his weight, and some minor injury concerns, but hell david wells was the freakin man and he was a fat ass, so F*** if. If its working for him then i wont worry. however it is hotter than hell in Texas compared to Cincy....
I think your imaginary friend meant DC
Wow...some scouts went to a couple of games. That's some crazy deep-insider information right there.
Must be that a deal is imminent. It's not like organizations send scouts all over the place all year long or anything...they are better utilized sitting at home all the time.
Thinking, Last night on the chat joey looked at this forum and he has an ip and found that you live in california.... Now why the hell would your brother be a scour for the reds?
Man! You mean scouts get to go to real baseball games ... not the computer generated ones you see on PS2? I bet they get to sit behind home plate and have neat radar guns. I bet they show those guns off to their girl friends too. Maybe they catch speeders during the day too!?
HIs buddy is probably a popcorn vendor ... not old enough to sell beer.
His buddy wanting to sound self important ... and our buddy here wanting everyone to think he's got the inside info. Hell ...Wash doesn't even know squat about that.
Cuedo isn't going anywhere. GMAB
Dude may or may not be a troll, but how does living in California have any probative value as to whether his friend is a scout for the Reds?
About the most retarded "gotcha" I've ever seen...
@ Pull T, I mean this dude is probably some troll who is a Angel or Dodger fan... I just mixed up my words
