Re: per mlbtraderumors:Reds dangling Keppinger
A deal that makes a little sense might be a deal around Kepp to the Yankees with Melky Cabrera comng back. Kepp could help at 3B until A-Rod comes back and Melky is not going to make the Yanks. I'm not a big Melky fan, but he's a switch hitter and a plus defender at both corner OF spots (but he can't really cut it in CF). His career splts say he's better as a LH Hitter versus RH Pitching. I think he's a 4th OF at best, but I like him better as a LH option than Jones, Nix or Castillo. The Reds would probably need to add something besides Kepp to any deal, but nothing that would kill the organization. The Yankees need bullpen too. Maybe Bray and Kepp for Melky and a prospect with options.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
