Carl Crawford
Rocco Baldeli

Both can be had this offseason. Does either of them interest you? I would love to get Carl Crawford, but I'm not sure what to give up.

I'd take either of them for the right price, I just don't know that the Reds have to chits.

Crawford in 2006
24 years old - .151 games - 305AVG/.348OBP/.482SLG/.830OPS

Baldelli in 2006
24 years old - 92 games - .302AVG/.339OBP/.533SLG/.872OPS

Freel in 2006
30 years old - 132 games - .271AVG/.363OBP/.399SLG/.762OPS

Denorfia in 2006
26 years old - 49 games - .283AVG/.356OBP/.368SLG/.724OPS

Hmm..no thanks. Not to mention Tampa has already stated they want a Front Line starter for Crawford, which he's not worth.

And for what it's worth - as both are supposed to be "Speedy leadoff" type guys, they rank, among players with 300PA in '06, 135th & 160th overall in OBP.

Bet Houston would love to get Crawford to play instead of Taveras.
They could give up Buchholz or Sampson or something.

Why in the world is TB even thinking of giving up either of these two? If was WK, I'd offer Dunn for Crawford, Jr. for Baldelli and start a dialogue.

I had to stop laughing before I could pick up the phone. Reminded me of the Airplane 2 movie.

Crawford will get moved for his asking price. Baldelli I am not so sure about. The guy is a very good player but there are a lot of health questions. I think Crawford could really flourish in a better lineup.

TC.. Tell the front office to shy away from dealing with Washington. Word around Cincinnati is that Jimbo goes after healthy OFers in return for damaged goods..

Hmmm. "Speedy leadoff guy" Crawford had 77 RBIs. That would rank highly on this team.

I would be ecstatic if Crawford was a Redleg. I'd like to see what a player like Crawford could do with a team that has at least a fantasy of competing.

Their OF has a ton of guys who could be seeing significant playing time next season. Crawford's going to be a FA soon and Baldelli's been battling all sorts of injury problems in his career, so they might as well get some value for them while they can.

I like Crawford's run and punch game. Though the Reds ought not to be trading quality starters for OFs under any circumstance. In fact, I'll be curious to see whether anyone puts a "frontline starter" on the market. I can see someone moving a kid like Chris Young was last year (talented, but unestablished), but I have a hard time envisioning a real stud getting moved. Mind you, if I were Dave Dombrowski, I'd be trying to cash in Nate Robertson for a guy like Crawford this winter.

Crawford is arbitration eligable and probably getting close to double digits as far as millions. He probably would recieve 6-9 million. Might be a factor in dangling him. His value is high due to productivity, youth, and health. Plus D-Rays have names like Young, Gomes, Hollins, Dukes, even McDonald showed he has AAA numbers to get a shot at the big league level. I'm sure the asking price is going to be high for Crawford.. but would it really start with Homer?

Why not Wood, Pelland, Medlock, and Chris Denorfia

I'm pretty sure that Crawford was signed through 2010 for about $5M or $6M a season.
