Really tough call on what to do because despite our leading the NL Central this team isn't on the Dodgers level. Or honestly most of those teams mentioned in the article. 

Depending on day part of me says trade Bryant and Kimbrel for massive haul.....and another part of me says we should be adding a starter and find another outfield bat and make a run at playoffs. If we just didn't dump Darvish the decision would be so much easier.

All I know is he's earned every day playing time. We haven't seen a kid do this since Schwarber in 2015 when he was called up. Happ can take a seat or just be a starter for when the other guys need a rest.

Wisdom isn't exactly a kid.  Saw somewhere where he is 29.

Crane Kenney was just on radio and said Cubs will definitely lose money this year even with full attendance starting Friday. He quickly added money won't be a factor in midseason moves. Haha. Tell me another funny one Crane.

I don't see how teams actually lose money, at least not significant money, with the TV revenue being what it is.

OK gents.  You have been promoted to the GM of your favorite team.  What do you change?  Whether it be lineup, trade, coaching staff, uniforms, or concessions.  

And, be specific.  Don't just say "I would trade for Babe Ruth".  What are you giving up to acquire the Bambino?  And, is it realistically something the Yankees would have accepted had Ruth actually still been playing at peak level.

Since I started this new job I have listened to a lot of Reds games.  During the Cardinal series they hit 8 Red batters and Jeff Brantley think it is time for the Reds pitchers to do something about it. For the season the Cardinals pitchers had hit 14 Reds batters.  Brantley wants the Reds pitchers to stand up for their teammates

I like for the Reds to put Antone in the starting rotation.  I would like for Bell to learn how to handle his pitching staff.  Don't know what names but the Reds have to go out and get at least 2 or 3 relievers.

The Reds glaring weakness is their bullpen.  I would use Naquin, Aquino, and Senzel to acquire such needed arms.  

*-My GM wizardry only applies if Cincy remains in the race.

I wouldn't have traded Darvish for starters...

How in the world is Milwaukee in first place with a NL worst .211 batting average.  Also the Refs lead the NL and 4th in baseball with a .249 average.  What is pathetic is that .249 is one of the top averages in baseball.

That and a few other things. For starters. Act like a large market team instead of trying to figure out why the cost overruns for your Wrigleyville developments are impacting payroll.

Reds lose 5-1 and the main difference was the bullpen.

Brewers Bullpen- 3.2 IP, 0 runs, 1 hit, 3 walks.

Refs Bullpen- 6IP, 5 runs, 6 hits, 7 walks, 2 intentional walks. 

Also Bell messed with a win streak by changing the lineup with bringing Votto back into the lineup and not starting Naquin.

The bullpen is a given but you aren't going to win a bunch of games scoring 1 run.
