That would make sense for the Marlins and Angels, I believe. It'd have to be Edwin going to the Marlins, Dunn going to LAA, and us getting back Cabrera from thh Fish and Santana from the Angels. With maybe a prospect from us and the Angels also going to FLA.
So, three team trade:
Reds trade: Dunn and Edwn. Reds get M. Cabrera and E. Santana
Marlins trade: M. Cabrera. Marlins get E. Encarnacion, prospect from LAA, prospect from CIN.
Angels trade E. Santana. Angels get A. Dunn.
Makes sense. I'd have to seriously consider that trade if I were the Reds. Cabrera and Dunn's contracts would pretty much be the same over the next 5-6 years with Cabrera being a better defender, a RH bat, and a better hitter for AVG. E. Santana would be a great addition to the rotation for this year and would start with Arroyo, Harang, and maybe Bailey in 2007, with us only needing 1 LHSP between Claussen (if healthy) or Milton (if healthy) to serve as the 5th man.
