Don't know why Cinci is interested in yet another outfielder they don't have space for, unless something with Casey is in the works....

That is a puzzling move. Cincy's outfield is already very crowded since Griffey's return. Perhaps they intend to use him as a PH only. Don't know why you'd want Russel "K" for that though...

I agree, who knows what they are thinking. I wonder if Branyan will follow Giles, Casey, Sexson, and Burnitz as being players the Indians traded who became good.

As for the Tribe, this mus be the begiing of cutting burnouts. Branyan was no doubt a burnout.....
