Found June 15, 2012 on Redlegs Review:
It's that time of year again, rumor season The trade deadline is still over a month and a half away, but that doesn't necessarily mean teams aren't looking around the league in search for potential help. The injury-riddled, flu-striken Redlegs (35-27) are no exception as they, like other contending squads, continue to attempt to perfect their roster. And the most intriguing name they're reportedly interested in is Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin. Despite sitting atop the NL Central standings, Cincinnati could desperately use another right-handed stick in the batting order -- specifically one that also plays left field. The Reds haven't gotten the production they hoped for out of the duo of Ryan Ludwick and Chris Heisey this season and the lingering injury to Drew Stubbs isn't helping the cause either. Entering play on Thursday, Cincy ranked last in the National League in left field production in runs scored (20), was 13th in average (.224),...

  • The Reds have too many outfields and one left handed bat on the roster. Walt Jocketty will never waste his time on this deal.

Daily Friar 6.16.12

The Padres were riding high coming into this series after sweeping the Mariners. Oh how quickly that was shot down last night. All in all it was pretty embarrassing to witness. The pitching was off, and the offense wasn't there either. The team hit 5-31 last night, and two of those hits came from Carlos Quentin. The 5-9 hitters went 1-16 collectively. That is not how the Padres...

And both are coming off of three-game sweeps. Chris Biderman previews...

Daily Friar 6.14.12

So I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the Padres won the game last night. And in doing so have also won the series, and are going for the sweep today. The pitching was spot on (though not as spot on as Matt Cain was last night) and got the job done. The bad news is that our RISP hitting is still having issues. Case in point was the 9th inning we had bases...
