Re: Best trade partner for the Reds based on needs
The Tigers and Angels seem to fit well as trade partners IF Dunn is the bait. I would take a stab at some of the Tigers young pitching (starters and bullpen). I have been intrigued by Thames as well. He had a good year for a guy that wasn't an everyday player.
As for the Angels, they have some nice young SS (as has been discussed), Ervin Santana, and another guy I would take a chance at if he could be had cheap, Dallas McPherson. He has been hurt and I wouldn't mind grabbing him if the Angels were getting tired of waiting on him to develop.
