I was thinking, if we could offer a package say a Claussen, Travis Wood and and 2 top relivers in AA, think they would bite? just curious..

The NL west can be won by anyone, I'd think they would want a lot more..and guys who are ready now.

I think you would get laughed out the door and they'd never answer the phone again. Wood is a top 5 starter in the NL and hasn't even begun arbitration yet. We could call and offer them Dunn and Wood and they'd still need to think about it.

They would want someone viable to fill Webb's rotation spot along with a starting prospect in AAA or AA. Even that might not get it done.

I'd start with Homer and go from there. If ever there was a pitcher designed to succeed in GABP, Webb is it.

Man an extreme groundball pitcher in Great American, from Ashland Kentucky, having as good of a season as anyone in baseball......that being said we dont have a chance to get him. I dont see a package we could put together to even have a chance.

They'd laugh so hard in Phoenix you could hear it from Tucson.

Minimum starting price would probably be Dunn + Bailey

Or alternatively, Harang + Bailey

i was just throwing a idea out their to build on... i dont understand why they want to trade Webb anyway? the way he keeps the ball down and is a huge groundball pitcher,, this is what this team needs... maybe a 3-way trade that could satisfy what they want as long as we can have Webb... just a idea...

Shoot with the way Krivski dealt with Washinton the deal would have to look something like this:

DBacks: Brandon Webb, Tony Clark, Damion Easley, Luis Gonzalez

Reds: Adam Dunn, Homer Bailey, Travis Wood, Joey Votto, Ray Olmedo, and Cash

I met his agent at the DBACKS game in May. Nice guy.
No way to they send Webb anywhere. No way.

As tight as the pitching market is - I strongly doubt it. You don't let a Webb without asking for very high dividends.

And after the Red's deal the other day - GMs are now scared to death of what they are gonna have to now pay for any type of pitching. ;)

I proposed Dunn for Webb a couple years ago, and people thought I was crazy.

Maybe I am, but I may have been on to something... :)

They would say no to that.

They would say no to that.

Maybe now, but a couple years ago, Dunn made less money and they needed a bat.

If only Webb were a Free Agent...

If Webb were a free agent, the only difference would be we'd be lamenting lack of capital to sign him as opposed to lack of tradeable talent.

Hate to burst everyone's bubble on Webb, but it's not like he'd be pitching in front of a "pickin' machine" defense on the Cincinnati infield. Lots of ground balls are awesome -- lots of groundballs that go past a diving Royce Clayton, Edwin Encarnacion and Scott Hatteberg...not so awesome.

Also if you guys look at the inside information the Diamondbacks want a replacement starter, another pitcher and minor league talent for Webb. I just don't think the REDS can package something up. The Diamondbacks are willing to deal him but only if they get what they want in return.

If major league service is still 6 years for an FA, Brandon's got 2 more years.

Add him to the wish list.

Would we trade Harang (at this time) for some propsects???

Of course not. So why would they trade Webb???

I don't often use the word "impossible" when talking about baseball, but it would be impossible for the Reds to acquire Webb in the next several years.

Well..if he tears his arm up or suddenly starts to suck we might have a shot ;)

uh...."impossible"....Team Clark stated in one of his posts that Webb was on the market....so it sounds as if it's very possible....?

Pujols is probably "on the market" as well, for a team willing to trade everything plus a few limbs ;)

Not unless he prices himself out of Arizona and gives Cincinnati a home town discount.

Thats the only way impossible is possible.
