    Ridiculous "Yahoo!" Article About Reds Trading For David Price

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/cincinn...5uxB5jks2FCLcF

    All told, the Reds should be facing a $110-million range in 2014 payroll commitment, which won't give the small-market team much maneuvering to acquire a pricey pitcher like Price.
    Unless of course, the Rays like what they're offered and are willing to help the Reds offset an equal amount of salary for what it would cost to pay Price.

    That would equate to three veterans -- Broxton, Chris Heisey and Logan Ondrusek -- and two top prospects -- Daniel Corcino and Donald Lutz -- for Price.

    It would fill five key positions for the Rays at the cost of one ace, and for the Reds the acquisition of Price would provide a front-end playoff rotation of Price, Cueto and Latos through 2015. Talk about trading Price has already started, but the Reds might be able to fly beneath the radar once again and jerk the carpet out from underneath the baseball world once again.
    Seriously?

    This article was written/posted today. That's more ridiculous than even the most one-side preposterous hypothetical trade I've seen on Redszone!

    If that were on the table, I'm pretty sure Price would be wearing Red tomorrow.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Yeah, you'd have to do that before they got the chance to change their mind.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    You mean before the drugs wore off. (It is a 4/20 weekend, so you never know)

    I think every team in the MLB has had some article written about how they've been connected to either Price or
    Stanton

    Still....I think the Reds need to throw in a Johnny Bench "Batter UP" to get the deal done.
