Re: Haren Vs Santana
There is a part of me that wants to see what we have in Hamilton, Votto, Bruce, Bailey, and Cueto before we start offering them in trades.
The Reds MUST look ahead to 2009 and beyond to when Junior won't be here and a 50-50 chance that Dunn won't be here. Hamilton and Bruce sound awfully nice as replacements in RF and LF. And the Reds desperately need Bailey and Cueto to pan out mainly to legitimize the farm system.
And if Votto gets traded, the Reds will most likely go with Hattiesburg type first basemen for the 4-5 years (Sean Casey anyone?)
Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.
