    Nope. The younger Boog has been bouncing around the minors for years. Some last names have common nicknames, take Pop Warner for example.

    Thanks Brian! The picture of the younger Boog eating at “Boogs” Barbecue place is a classic!

    MLB Radio interviewed the older Boog this summer. They discussed his career and his restaurant. He has a great gig with his restaurant being located next to Camden Yard!

    jager, you may ignore this too, but the record shows that the Cards and Reds have not made a player for player trade in 23 years – since Jeff Brantley for Dmitri Young in 1997.

    Why wouldn’t Cincy let him re-establish his health before entertaining trade offers?

    Winker, Ervin, Jankowski, Schebler, these are the duds the Reds better be getting rid of and not Senzel. Senzel is a gamer and could be good for a long time.

    Strop had a 4.97 ERA for the Cubs last season.

    The Reds seem determined to sign NL Central players. Moustakas, Castellanos, Strop.

    Reds see a weakness within the top 3 teams and are trying to take advantage. They should be the favorite unless they just get decimated by injuries.

    No, they shouldn’t…the Cardinals should be.

    Cards got worse over the off-season not better, Reds have done nothing but get better.

    Interesting take. They were a poor team last year, so you believe that Moustakas, Castellanos, Miley and Akiyama are enough to push them 20 games forward from last year?

    You forgot the addition of Trevor Bauer and the deadline last year and Strop today. That move for Bauer was made for a 2020 run at a playoff spot.

    And I think a 13-15 game improvement could be enough with the lack of impact moves by the top 3 teams of last season.

    They do have Suarez out until the beginning of the season. Shoulder injuries are tricky. So maybe they struggle out of the game but they can shift a guy like Senzel to Infield. Which might be why they aren’t so keen on dealing him right away.

    Also consider the Cubs and the addition of a new skipper might inject some life into the lineup and that pitching. Right now I’d say those are the top 2 teams.

    The Reds have an imposing looking lineup and the potential for a good rotation and bullpen but their defense may be the worst in the league.

    Ross may inject some life into the Cubs but their pitching staff still has little depth, just like last year.

    You mean the Bauer who went 2-5 with a 6.39 ERA with the Reds last year and who’s only had one season with an ERA under 4 in his career? And the Strop who looked lost last year?

    booyah, my advice is to run – do not walk – to your local oddsmaker. The Reds are down for 84 1/2 wins, unless the addition of Strop took it down… 😉

    Either the Reds are so good they can play with two fewer players than everyone else, or this is not the final roster.

    The D’backs trade their closer as the Reds get some much-needed relief help.
