Anybody who isnt stupid realizes the Reds need a lot of help in our bullshit pen. Here r some realistic guys I think da Reds should go after.

LaTroy Hawkins RH RP-Orioles
He's on a 1 year deal makin bout 4.5 mil

Roberto Hernandez RH RP-Pirates
1 year deal 2.75 mil

Damaso Marte LH RP-Pirates
1 year deal 2.25 mil

Ray King LH RP-Rockies
1 year deal 2.5 mil

Jorge Julio RH RP-Diamondbacks
1 year deal 2.5 mil

Scott Shields RH RP-Angels
not sure how many years, makin 2.1 mil

Rafael Soriano RH RP-Mariners
26 years old, can throw 98 mph, makin 450 K, Id bust a load if we got him

Bob Wickman RH RP-Indians
makin 5 mil, dont kno the years

Guillermo Mota RH RP-Indians
He's strugglin this year, but he's still better than our shit, he's makin 3 mil

Most of these teams r already out of the race and all of these guys are pitching good besides Mota. I think if this team is goin to stay where they're at they need to go get help now instead of waitin till the deadline. I kno we need a 5th starter, but we need bullpen help a lot more. Big Bob said he would spend money if we were in it and needed help, so when the hell r we gonna get help?

I kno Shafer and Salmon r pitchin well, but I would much rather see LaTroy Hawkins come in the 8th inning than Brad Salmon. I think if this team was out of it right now, Id be all for putting in ur young guys, but I dont think u can make a playoff run with a bullpen full of new guys. But if they dont make any moves, I would rather see David Shafer than the Weather Man and the other young guys down on the farm.

Well, i agree that it's time to do something. I don't want management to wait to see if we'll be in contention by the trading deadline, because if we continue to play the way we are right now with our shitty bullpen (and this is assuming that we start scoring runs like we should be), we won't be.

If your not willing to try out the young guys then you might as well trade them.
No reason to have them rotting away in the minors when they could be helping out the major league club.
