Winter Meetings Start tomorrow

A little blast from the hot stove for the Reds. Meetings start tomorrow. Of course, the only question is can or will we deal a bat for some badly needed pitching...and if we do, will it be someone who helps or does harm? Apparently, those going to the meetings have the word from the new NOW! No patience is available...

I like this attitude, and hope we can pull it off. Problem is, I 'm not sure there is a win NOW option out there. Free agent pitchers are way overpriced, and it takes time for your own guys to develop. Trades are the only way. Rumors are Casey to Boston for Arroyo or Youlikis, either of which is a fine deal. If you have Casey and Kearns/Pena, and you get two decent starters to go with Harang and Claussen, then maybe you have enough pitching to get you by, if you keep scoring. That's the only way I see it happening.
