2016 Cincinnati Redlegs

Post by Orange and Brown » Thu Oct 29, 2015 8:57 am

May as well start it now so we can get it all out of our system before spring training starts lol

The Reds will suck again next year. Chapman will be traded by the all star break, Phillips will be gone by then as well.
If they can get a good deal for Bruce, he will be gone as well.
The farm system is pretty empty (except for a few guys they picked up).

God hates Cincinnati..............
We will never get back to the Series :(

I'm a diehard fan, go to several games every year and watch every game I can on tv whether they suck or not. But, let's be realistic they'll be bad again. #1 and #2 starting pitchers gone. But, I'm pretty confident in the offense for next year!

Catcher - Mesoraco (if his hip holds up)
1B - Joey Votto
2B - Brandon Phillips
3B - Todd Frazier
SS - Zach Cozart (was smoking the ball last year before he got hurt).
LF - Eugenio Suarez (started at short for the season after Cozart got hurt, showed he can hit bombs and hit a high average, they'll find a spot for him).
CF - Billy Hamilton (if he could hit about .270 he will still about 150 bases).
RF - Jay Bruce (needs to get back to his big slugging days).

Not sure about the starting pitching (lots of questions with the age).

Bullpen will be better than last year (sean marshall coming back, having manny parra for a whole season!)

Get ride of Brian Price!!!! He is an idiot!!

They need to fire "Pottymouth Price" and get a decent manager. Sadly, the Reds have become a stepping stone to step up to a team with more talent and resources...

Several test have expressed a high interest in Chapman. Hopefully we don't just give him away for a bag of balls and a couple brooms. :(

Their are reliable sources saying The Todd Father may end up traded as well.

I've heard both of these, don't get rid of Flava Fraz! He kept the seats full even though we sucked last year! Heard that Bruce has some interest as well.

I would guess a starting rotation of DeSclafani, Iglesias, Bailey (when healthy lol) 4/5 will be up for grabs between several guys. Lorenzen, Lamb, Finnegan, Cingrani, Stephenson, Sampson & maybe a vet. Have heard a possible reunion with Bronson Arroyo.

According to reports, the deal that sends Chapman to the Dodgers is on hold. After running a check on him they found out that earlier this year he fired a gun and choked girlfried. So this deal is TBA later.

Don't expect to win more than about 50 games or so for about 5 years The Reds trade away All-Star 3B Todd Frazier to the White Sox in a 3-team,7-player trade with the Dodgers as well. The reds acquire three prospects from the Dodgers in the trade.

Brandon Phillips is also rumored to be on the market, the main team being the Nationals.

You HAVE to tear it down to build it back up. I am not completely against the haul we got.Peraza and Schebler will play for the Big club this year. I liked T odd. But....The Missile and that nonsense has put a complete rebuild on hold. Hopefully they can shed Phillips to somewhere he will agree to go to. THE BIGGEST CANCER in any CLUBHOUSE in professional sports right now. And has been. Has that No-trade clause which is hell. No team wants Jay Bruce. Great person and I know Walt and Dickie dont want to give him away. But...Nobody wants him and he is an ENERGY VAMPIRE to this club with all his struggles.

It looks like the deal that sends Phillips to Washington is complete.

If they can unload Votto by getting him to agree to a trade, the house cleaning would be complete. As the Inspector mentioned up thread, you got to tear it down to build it back, but are there any prospects obtained in these trades or farm hands available to even start building a contender four to five years down the road? Seems like KC and Houston went the same route but had farm team talent to build upon. From afar, the Reds minor league system seems to be as devoid of talent as the parent club. Is there any hope on the horizon?

Young pitching is where it is at for the Reds!! High on Lorenzen,Finnegan,Disco,Mella,Traviesso,Weiss,Moscot,Lamb,and Romano. Almost giddy about the potential of Robert Stephenson,Cody Reed,Amir Garrett,and Raisel Iglesias!! I like Jesse Winker. Hopefully Yorman.Aquino,Ervin,or another hitting prospect can take the next step. They have one of the best prospects in T Stephenson at catcher. LaValley is another prospect I like.

They are still going to trade Chapman. Phillips...what can you say?..$$$$!!...They are still going to trade Bruce for a bag of balls. But he will be addition by subtraction. Get Homer back in May along with Mes and Cozart being healthy. They are going to build around Joey. They also have the 2nd pick and they HAVE to go O and make it count. Peraza and Schebler are nice pickups..IMO

I agree with you on all that! The young pitching for the Reds is terrifying for opposing teams once they all develop, and IF they do. Get rid of Bruce, 30 homers and a .200 BA each year isn't doing much for you, he plays great D, but doesn't provide much else. I'm super excited for Mesoraco and Cozart to come back, Suarez played incredible last year at short! Votto still has several years left where he will be a .300+ hitter and hit 25 homers. They can build around these guys and be real good as contenders again in a couple years.

I love the Chapman trade. 1 Why do we need a closer we are rebuilding. 2. Rookie Davis is 22 and most scouts have him as Yanks 2nd best pitching prospect. Rocky 38 innings in double A but I think hes a future # 3. 3. Jagielo has 24 HRs in 140 minor league games was crushing it before the knee injury. If he can prove he can play 3rd I have him at his peak at 32 Homeruns .280 guy he is really slow and his defense sucks but he can take a walk and has an amazing bat. 4. We traded 1 season of Chapman for potentially a starting 3rd baseman and back end starter. The Reds has traded for young power in Schleber and Jagielo. Pereza is an on base machine. I think Cothem will make the big league team.

I dont agree with you about Cothem at all. But I like your post and agree with the rest of it :) Now convince that prima donna BP to get out of town and hopefully find a landing place for Jay(Which will be very difficult)....Then the rebuild has officially begun

Its a good thing Val...The Missile will blow up in NY City... A little disappointed in the haul....but....He had to go.....He went nuts a couple months ago or it would have been more. He will be suspended for a period of time. He put 7 bullet holes in his garage and roughed his girl up?...
