I'd offer Maloney and ask for them to pay at least half of the money due.
Maloney is a poor-man's Lily, which is what we need. NOT the expensive version.
We have enough of a logjam at SP, I'm not trading for an at-best marginal upgrade at #3/#4 SP. Lilly's not going to get us over the proverbial hump.
IMO the only reason to acquire him is to keep him from going to the Cards, and maybe some insurance. I wouldn't give much for that at all.
P.S. - So which of Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, or Stubbs has a comparable OPS to Dunn these days anyhow?
I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008
Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
