Raisor, maybe for WMP to play everyday it's Jr. that has to go. There's options beyond moving Dunn to 1B is all I'm saying.
REDREAD, look at what the White Sox dealt for Bart Colon or what the Phillies dealt for Kevin Millwood. The Reds can beat that, easy. What you need is the cash to take on that kind of contract.
Steel, I agree that there's more than one way to trade a Casey and the Reds should scout around for their best deal. Yet the one thing I hope they avoid is not pulling the trigger on him and finding themselves in this exact same situation next year. As cringe-inducing as Jarvis is (and I'd be all for cutting him) that deal would get the Reds out from under Casey's deal two years early.
Heeler, I'm thinking the trade market makes more sense than going the FA route. Livan Hernandez, Byung-Hyun Kim, Odalis Perez - guys like that. That's where the mid-range talent is and that's where shaving $2 million off the payroll by moving Casey might do you some good.
