Re: Why is everyone so ready to trade Kearns or Willy Mo?
It is good to see some new folks joining the board and posting in this thread. I think with the state of the pitching and the principle of trading from a strength to plug a weakness, if we could land a "3", or consistently average young starter for the price of Pena or Kearns, you have to do it in the name of "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time." This all comes about because there is nothing in the system that allows us to hold onto the offense and wait for the young guy to develop to the point of helping the big league club.
I don't think anyone really wants to trade either of them because both have shown flashes of star potential, but I think its a matter of the Reds have to trade one of them eventually. Of course, I said that last year and they're both still here, so who knows.
