Talk about your ACE!
Give them Dunn and other fodder and get back maybe a young OF with Willis.
Give me Willis, Arroyo, Harang and Homer and I will start printing playoff tickets.
I believe the Reds should try Olemdo and Phillips as the DP duo. Move JR to LF and platoon Freel and Denorfia in CF. Pick up a hitter in the mold of Juan Encarncion or Reggie Sanders to play RF.
Shoot, I might even consider playing JR in RF and EdwinE in LF with Aurillia at 3B.
Florida is going to want Major League ready prospects.. With last years payroll I don't see them looking to add 10.5 million to the payroll when there payroll was not even 20 million last year. However I would make an effort to deal for Willis. Bailey would probably be the only Reds prospect that could be ML ready. I'm not ready to deal a 20 yr old rising star for Willis unless Cabrera is involved. I just feel Bailey can put up similar numbers Willis can with a cheaper base pay.
