I think Walt's looking to make a splash, but I doubt he drops the deed to the farm for anyone. Left fielder would be much appreciated.

More than any other Reds GM in recent history, I trust WJ not to do anything stupid that would jeopardize the progress that has been made within the organization.

I agree. But strangely, I also trust that he will pull the trigger on a calculated, strategic blockbuster if one presents itself. Good feeling to have about a GM, eh?

I also. I suspect that he has one or two in mind. If they can't be done for what he has in mind, he stands pat. I also think that the contracts we have seen in the last few days, make it a little less likely that he deals.

Josh Willingham.


I've been wanting the Reds to get Willingham for a few years now.

I'm not sure but it seems to me most of the Reds trades and FA signings the past several years have happened after the Winter Meetings.

Anyone remember the last significant trade the Reds made during the Winter Meetings?

Don't know how possible it would be, but I'd love to see the Reds pick up Jose Reyes.

I say this only half tongue in cheek: Tim Leary for Hal Morris?

I like Willingham, too, but I don't see them spending for a LF. Too many cheap in-house alternatives to spend money on this spot: Heisey, Frazier, Sappelt.

The Josh Hamilton/Edinson Volquez trade was made after the Winter Meetings, but IIRC, the talks really heated up at the Winter Meetings. I know that doesn't count though. :D

Hopefully Jay Bruce is signed to a 6 year deal by the time this is said and done.
