If the Reds are to make any deals this week, the pen is the place to deal from. All these guys could legitimately appear in the big league pen in 2010:
If not Cordero with Masset sliding in at Closer, guys like Burton, Rhodes and maybe Owings and Bray may be able to fetch something back to bolster the SS situation. Rhodes for Brignac would add a LH bat as a SS alternative while cutting cost and supplementing the youth movement. Rhodes was awesome last year, but a repeat is probably too much to expect and he would be viewed as a bargain at $2 Million and IMO would be in demand. Seems like he could fetch something. Guys like Fisher and Del Rosario would be competent backfills for anyone dealt. I'd probably be willing to add Ondrusek to a deal, but there may be reasons to keep him around that I don't know of.
