    I’d like to see Weiss get another shot in Cincy. Rainey got pounded yet again, and while Weiss didn’t record an out in his first shot (2 hits and 2 BB), he only got the one shot. He’s had a good year in Louisville, there’s really nothing to lose giving him another shot and send Rainey back down.

      Was just looking at the 40 man and Rainey was already optioned yesterday (save that service time lol). So on the 40 Weiss seems like the only logical choice. Could always get a long over due Aquino DFA and purchase the contract of Herget or Quackenbush perhaps.

    Random out-there trade proposal. Let me know how crazy I am.

    Trade Senzel, Shed, Jose Lopez (or comparable AAA starter…maybe BobSteve if the Reds won’t give him a shot?) to the Rays for Blake Snell. Lefty controlled through the 2022 season, currently 4.2 WAR (2.27 ERA, 1.067 WHIP in the AL East). Think the Rays would do this? Not sure what kind of other big-time offers they are getting.

    Given this trade, extend Scooter for ~3-4 years, will bridge the gap until JIndia, Jeter Downs, etc is ready to take over at 2B.

    Go ahead, tell me how wrong I am.

      Or for that matter, still try to trade Scooter and give Dilson a shot at 2B for a couple years. Or include in him the trade in place of Shed since he is MLB-ready and that may be what the Rays are looking for.

      I think overall that’s fairly realistic, maybe a little heavy on the prospects going to Tampa. I couldn’t pull that trigger if I was the Reds though, something about Blake Snell scares me, maybe it’s visions of Matt Moore redux dancing in my head. Something about Tampa pitching has always been very volatile, Shields, Kazmir, Moore, Archer, Cobb, even Price has had some major hiccups over the years. Of course that’s kinda pitching in general but it seems to happen almost like clockwork to Tampa pitchers.

        Thanks for the feedback, I’ll take fairly realistic as a soft compliment. I just think our middle infield depth, especially at 2B, needs to be leveraged and give our rotation a shot in the arm. I know that’s not a hot take by any means, and definitely not new to this site, but it seems inevitable.

        A 2019 rotation of Snell, Disco, FA (Keuchel?), Castillo, Mahle would be very promising paired with a starting 8 of Schebler, Votto, Suarez, Scooter, Winker, Barnhart, Peraza, Hamilton (or new CF).

        Remaining 2B depth would be Scooter, Blandino, Dixon, Dilson/Shed, possibly India, Downs, Case, Willems. While none of those guys may have Senzel’s ceiling, one of them should be a quality starter at 2B in a couple years.

      • redlegs4ever

        It was meant to be a compliment. Compared to 90% of trades people on the internets make up that has a legit chance to happen. I have no problem moving Senzel for a top of the rotation arm, my concerns lie with Snell being that arm for previously stated reasons.

        Personally I would move Gennett for the best return I could get now and then still look to move Senzel for a top of the rotation arm. I have full faith that one or a combination of Dilson, Blandino, Dixon, and Long can provide more than adequate production from 2B in 2019 and beyond.

    • The Duke

      I don’t think they’d trade Snell for Nick Senzel, Hunter Greene, Shed Long, and Jose Lopez

      • Doug

        :-/ There goes my pitch to be assistant GM. I hope the Reds have at least called the Rays. Syndergaard (3 years of control) or Snell (4) would be the move to make us a legitimate contender next year. Our prospect depth is there. Make it happen Nicholas & Richard!

      • Alex

        I agree with Duke. The package would be so huge for Snell that I farm would be nonexistent afterward.

  3. Matthew O'Neal

    Next year’s AAA rotation is shaping up nicely. Gutierrez, Santillan, Mella (unless he is promoted before then), Lopez (same), and Varner/Reed/other.

    Aneurys Zabala might have a chance to become a quality closer in the Fernando Rodney style. His 100+ fastball is real and looks to be very effective.
