OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: Joe K on the move?
Just read in the CC times I think that Joe K and Byrnes may be moving before the deadline.
this helps, if you want to read an article at cctimes.com:
yeah, bugmenot is the shit
anyway, what has Joe K really done for us so far? or Witasick? I'm still rubbing my head a bit over how much these guys can really help us. our bullpen already has pretty defined roles. I suppose extra arms never hurt...
Hey Ray you catch that 14 inning game last Sunday or did you miss the 3 innings of scoreless ball Joe K. gave us so we could win the game??????????????????????
ok yeah, i did get that, but the guy did give up quite a few hits in those frames and was the benefactor of some great glove work. how about the other night when Witasick couldn't get an out? and what does any of it mean if we trade Joe K? man I hope it's for something good!
But Witasick after that bad first outing gave us 1 1/3 IP of shutout baseball on Sunday.
Kennedy is playing with fire every time! he's escaped a lot of jams by the skin of his teeth. i say, give him the Cruz treatment: send him to Sacto to work things out, and bring up Cruz.
Kennedy is switching leagues and is moving from being a SP to a RP so it's hard on him too.
I don't think they can send him down without clearing waivers. He's most likely out of options, but I'm not sure.
Hmmm, for what it's worth:
There's a weak rumor out there right now that would involved Kennedy, Cruz, and Garcia going to the Reds for Adam Dunn. Again it's a weak rumor so I wouldn't read too much into it right now.
Hell, I'd do that deal in a second, even though Dunn could garner a huge contract after this year.
My friend in cincy says a rumor now is Dunn to LA for Edwin Jackson and Antonio Perez. Now, both those guys are decent prospects, but i felt we could make a better package than that for Dunn.
I think Dunn might drive Billy insane with all his SO's, but he seems to be making strides with taking walks.
LA has been rumored in trading both Weaver and Perez so I don't know what they're doing. They're probably going to trade their two best pitchers, does that mean they're giving up on this season.
Even though Kennedy looks like he's gonna piss his pants when he's on the mound, so far he has done well with the transition. He has stepped up in certain situations. I would like to keep him for a little longer and see how he does. I mean he's coming in and throwing multiple innings of shut out ball.
Do ya really wanna have Ricky Run-Run as the only lefty in the 'pen?.......
Hey, we still can bring back Ron Flores from AAA.
he is doing well in Sac. can't say the same for dan meyer. man i hope he gets it together, or cruz is effective in the bigs, so we can say the huddy deal wasn't a bust.
