Re: Fixing the Reds in One Fell Swoop
The only realistic trade out of those is the first one. Guthrie can be had, but doesn't Baltimore want to lock up Hardy long-term?
Los Angeles is not going to deal Matt Kemp, who is one of the best players in baseball right now. They aren't going to deal him off right now, even with the money issues.
And the Marlins trade. No. Despite what these dumb beat reporters are saying, the Marlins are not going to trade Hanley. Not going to happen. And nor are they going to trade Anibal. He's been their ace this year (with JJ out) and they are likely going to lock him up. And does anyone remember that Hanley has been one of the top three position players in baseball the past five years? I guess not. Yea, he's struggling mightily, but he's not Edgar Renteria. Come on.
