Via the Dayton Daily News:
Well Ken Williams apparently wants an all new team.
Homer Bailey was a stud prospect before stinking up the joint last year to the tune of 0-6 with a 7.93 ERA in eight starts with the Reds and a record of 4-7 with a 4.77 ERA at Class AAA Louisville. I know ERA and W-L aren't great stats, but when you're terrible it shows. Plus I don't feel like looking up better data.
Jermaine Dye meanwhile is the same guy he's always been and gets to go to another hitter friendly park. Plus he's only got one year left on his current contract (with a mutal option for 2010) so don't be suprised if he gets flipped at the deadline for prospects or gets held onto for pick compensation next winter.
Seems like a decent deal for the Reds if they consider Dye as tradebait/pickbait and are not looking at him as the missing piece to a condending ballclub next year.
