Deadline day

As if you didn’t know…reminder that the non-waivers Trade Deadline is at 4 p.m. ET today. Stay tuned. When I know something, I will let you know ASAP.

Reds lineup vs. Giants

Stubbs 8
Renteria 6

Phillips 4
Bruce 9
Heisey 7
Hernandez 2
Frazier 5
Cueto 1

**UPDATE**  The Braves acquired center fielder Michael Bourn from the Astros Sunday morning in exchange for Jordan Schafer and three Minor League pitchers –  left-hander Brett Oberholtzer and right-handers Paul Clemens and Juan Abreu. As I reported last night, the Reds cooled on Bourn because of a high asking price in return.

As of 11 am, the Reds have not made a deal but it doesn’t mean the club has been idle. Most of the baseball ops department has been on site throughout the weekend with GM Walt Jocketty.

“So far, we have to do with what we’ve got,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “I’ll be glad when this is over. It’s the same every year. It’s an uncomfortable feeling for some guys who might have a job, the fact they might lose a job and guys that have to relocate their families in the middle of a season. That’s always unpleasant.”

Yes dusty its not a good idea to add a huge bat in the middle of the lineup (Like Kemp) because we dont want to make his family upset they have to move… Walt was probably watching the NASCAR race in his office since they didnt do anything!!
