Got to admit that I was pretty sure the Angels and the Reds were a bad fit in a big deal. But with them missing on Soriano and Lee, I can't believe that they won't trade for a big bat now. Not sure how Figgins helps the Reds much but I like Saunders and Izturis. Dunn makes sense for them, but this deal would sink the Reds IMO. The offense would be dead last in everything. If the Reds could trade Griffey for Saunders and Izturis that would be pretty good. He won't go though and I doubt the Angels would give that much for him. Your scenario is very possible though, even though I don't like the particular players involved.
I'm thinking Pat Burrell is going to end-up there maybe for a Scott Shields or some one like Mike Napoli or Jeff Mathis. I haven't heard anything, it just makes a lot of sense with the Phillies looking to dump Burrell and needing a catcher and pen help. Still gotta wonder about A-Rod or Manny Ramirez now too.
