The Reds have scored an average of just over 2 R per game when Cueto has pitched. He always faces the oppositions #1 or #2 SP. Suffice it to say that he won’t miss the consistent lack of support. Today’s score…1-0 into the 4th.

Report: Jay Bruce among Reds’ top trade targets
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
With rival teams looking at Johnny Cueto, Aroldis Chapman and Mike Leake as potential acquisitions at this year’s trade deadline, some Reds personnel believe right fielder Jay Bruce has as good of chance as getting traded as anyone on the roster, according to Fox Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal.

The 28-year-old Bruce rejected a pair of contract extensions from the Reds last season. He is slated to make $12.5 million in 2016 and has a $13 million team option ($1 million buyout) for 2017.

Bruce’s contract gives him the right to reject trades to eight teams. They are the Diamondbacks, Red Sox, Marlins, Twins, Yankees, Athletics, Rays and Blue Jays, according to BaseballProspectus.com.

The Reds SUCK !!!! Top to bottom .

The Reds have flat out QUIT . They are an embarrassment to all the great fans that have followed and spent their hard earned money on them . They can’t hit or pitch and Mr . “Stuck on himself ” Votto is one of the worst ones His defense sucks and he ‘s as selfish as they come .

You know how this is going to go. Bruce’ll go, and then against the Reds he’ll rake – ha!

I remain very hesitant to trade Bruce. He is very, very inconsistent, however he has talent that isn’t necessarily found elsewhere. And, when he gets hot, there are few hotter than him. Let’s deal with Cueto, Leake, Chapman, Parra and Byrd before we go out of our way to trade Bruce. Not very happy that he turned down two offers to extend his contract with the Reds, but…when he gets hot, he can literally carry the team on his back. Lastly, he’s good for two more seasons (inexpensive too!), so we have more time than most. Once again, there are bigger timber to cut down before we whack at this one. Of course, extremely positive offers make my above statements mute.

Neb . Bruce has been cold a lot more than hot the past two seasons . Trade him while he has at least a little value and if does become a better hitter , then we need to look no further than Reds’ development and coaching .

Totally agree Jim. He’s hot now and at best value. I don’t think his stats are that hot with RISP though. My prediction is if the Reds don’t trade him NOW, he will cool and we will have the same old Bruce with everyone saying just wait he will get hot again and carry the team and we will be singing the same song next year and the next.

Amen !!!

From MLBTR:
•Corner infielder Josh Satin has an opt-out clause in his minor league deal with the Reds that he could exercise on Wednesday, reports Andy Martino of the New York Daily News. Should Satin exercise the clause, the Reds would be required to either add Satin to their 25-man roster or let all 29 other clubs know that he is available to be added to their 25-man roster within 48 hours. (Cincinnati would choose Satin’s destination if multiple teams expressed interest.) Satin, 30, is batting .263/.368/.387 in 225 Triple-A plate appearances this season. He’s a career .243/.346/.351 hitter in the Majors and has been much more effective against left-handed pitching (.793 OPS) than right-handed pitching (.613 OPS). All of Satin’s big league experience has come with the Mets.

The Reds already have plenty of those type hitters on the roster now .
