Re: Sheffield placed on DL
now is the time for us to possibly make a trade with the Bronx bombers. I know this is going to upset a lot of people but here is my proposal.
Reds trade: Adam Dunn
Yanks trade:Phillip Hughes-19yrs old AA prospect RSP
Melky Cabrera-21yrs old ML of
Scott Proctor-29yrs old Middle reliever
Reds then place Cabrera as their lf to platoon with freel and get one of the top pitching prospects in the game in Hughes. Proctor provides some much needed bullpen depth and is in his prime to only get better.
I know the Reds give up a lot in Dunn, but it allows us to reload with young talent and still be able to keep guys like Lopez,EE,Kearns,Harang,Arroyo,and Coffey for a long time. Eventually Dunn will be overpriced, and to be honest I would rather have a guy like Jason Bay than Dunn, Bay is the better all around player. Remember not too long ago the A's dumped Hudson and Mulder, and got a boatload of young talent in return, I see this trade as such.
this trade allows us to go after a couple of high priced Fa's at the end of the season to fill some holes.
