    I do too. Every time I mention a 5th starter I always suggest they can just go with either Chatwood/Graveman/Mills or Alzolay.

    Morosi thinks Texas, but they don’t have pitching in their organization. I think Jung is going to hit, but the Cubs probably want a lot of pitching back in a major trade.

    Wonder why he says Texas. Like you said, for who?

    Graveman can also be optioned like Alzolay and Mills, so unless something is wrong with him they should pick up the option. He’ll be good depth in Iowa that they can use as needed.

    Maybe he knows they want to add aggressively going into their new park, but they’d probably need a 3rd team to pull off a big trade with a team looking for pitching.

    Reds have hired Driveline Baseball founder Kyle Boddy as their director of pitching initiatives.

    So much for that option...I know some of you have mentioned him in this forum recently

    He chose the Reds? Interesting choice

    I have a thought. How about Hou moves Gurriel this winter, with the intention of a major upgrade with KB. Is there even an outside chance we could pry Whitley from them?

    My guess is that the Reds offered the most money.

    You're probably right but there's no reason the Reds should be outbidding us for anything. I hope we have someone else better in mind.
