Isn't that the reason why they call it the Hot Stove league?? It's not the "we like players but we not saying who league".
I can't deny that it would be interesting to know who WK is negotiating with. Still, being aware of those negotiations really doesn't mean anything unless the contracts get signed.
I'm 100% sure that the Reds would be interested in players like Peavy, Rivera, and even A-Rod. What is not 100% positive is that the Reds (among other teams) could afford them or be willing to give up critical players to make the deal happen.
I could be wrong here but my impression is that many have the attitude that Krivsky can walk into a baseball player supermarket and pick guys off the shelf but it just ain't that simple. When it comes to trades between teams and free agency negotiations, the process is extremely complex. Who you get depends on so many factors.
