A caller on WLW SportsTalk last night who claimed to be from South Florida mentioned that the Cards & REDS were in trade talks w/ the Marlins for Dontrelle Willis. The REDS talk..

* Dontrelle Willis & Miguel Cabrera for Austin Kearns, Edwin Encarnacion and Ryan Wagner.

Only talk on the radio from an unknown. I am sure most here would do this deal in a heartbeat.... I know I would. The REDS would have to add payroll to do it, which always makes you wonder about the validity of the rumor.

That's a no brainer.

Gammons said this morning the the Marlins had not opened any discussions for either player. He said that unless they are going to be contracted, it would be foolish to do so, and they won't know for sure if that will be the case until probably the off season. If they can't get a new park, or re-locate then they possibly could be contracted.

If they ARE going to get a new park, or re-locate they won't be any good to anybody without Willis and Cabrera, who are under their control for the next 3years.

I put NO stock into any trade rumors involving these two, personally. I think there is less than 1% chance that either of them are traded beofre the season is over.

Florida would have to be ridiculously stupid to entertain that deal. Three prospects with a lot of upside but a lot still to prove for 2 proven all-stars? Yes please!!!

That might be the biggest joke ever...if Florida even talked about that it should be done immediately.

I can't imagine this trade being possible, with only those players involved. I would think it would take more than that to even reel in Dontrelle....throw in Homer and it's still iffy...especially getting Cabrera with him.

Sounds like a sweet deal. Any chance they throw in Joe Morgan and Jack Billingham? :)

If Wayne Krivsky could pull such a one-sided deal like that, the General Manger of the Year award should immedietly be re-named the Krivsky Award.

Yeah, that package wouldn't get one of those players. I don't think the Reds have enough warm prospect bodies for what it would cost to get both of them. It would take EdE, Homer, Wood, Bruce at least not even counting others.

If we could just go after Willis I would be in favor of that but I don't think either one would be dealt until after this year anyways.

Neither Dontrelle or Cabrera are going anywhere. The bigger question is what will happen wiht the Marlins?

Are they going to get a new stadium built?

Marlins would get more in return if they traded Willis and Cabrera in separate deals.

I think they'll keep them both for the long run if they can just manage to get a new ballpark

So I take it we don't need to run a poll to see how Zoners feel about the validity of this rumor!??!! :)

Next, the Reds will trade Hatteberg, Aurilia, Dave Williams and Jay Bruce to the Cards for Albert Pujols. That has about as much of a chance of happening as the above rumor does...

It would be alittle more realistic if it was for one of them, but not both.

Why would the fish do that deal? Cabrera > Kearns, so why include him why not Kerans, EdE & Wagner for Willis (which is patently ridiculously also) for that matter?

Probably not. Jeb Bush is more concerned with the upcoming Hurricane season than dishing out 100 of millions for a baseball team.

They won't in that town, they are westward bound.

Perhaps to save money (it's the Marlins). I believe Cabrera and Willis both inked new contracts recently.
