The Toronto Sun reported that resident LOOGY Scott Schoeneweis has been dealt to the Cincinnati Reds for a Player to be Named Later. This usually means that the player was drafted this year and is not eligible to be traded just yet, and will his name will be announced once he reaches his eligibility. Please correct me if I am wrong on this.
You must all know how I feel about unloading veteran these days and I am happy to unload any potential free agent we have, even for the most uninteresting prospects, cause you never know when you strike lightning in a bottle. Scott Schoeneweis has largely been a dissapointment this year and in my mind has been overtaken by fellow lefties Scott Downs and Brian Tallet on the depth chart, as Schoeneweis is borderline unusable against Righthanded hitters.
With Reds GM Wayne Krivsky overpaying for relievers, I quietly hope that we get something significant in return, but that's probably just wishful thinking.
I believe a move to the NL will benefit his career, he should be a useful part in the Cincy bullpen during their stretchdrive.
I wish the best of luck to Schoeneweis. Even though he was uneffective this year, he was one of the more stable arms in the bullpen in past years. I thoroughly enjoyed his stint as a Jay.
