Back in December, I recall reading that there was a potential Reds/Rox Mighty Mez for Dexter Fowler deal in the works. My question is, do the Rox still see Mesoraco as a "high octane" prospect, & be willing to trade LH reliever stud Rex Brothers?
Brothers is a 25yr old LH reliever w/ a live arm, & great stats: http://colorado.rockies.mlb.com/team...meType=%27R%27 who could fill a glaring Reds need & help shore up the pen for years to come. (He's also out of Tennesse, & would probably feel right at home in a Reds uniform.)
Also, seeing that the Rox just placed Eric Young Jr. on waivers, we could swap out a couple of players in Young/Heisey who both need a change of scenery & could be good bench players for their new teams. EY hit pretty good last year, has speed to burn (great pinch-runner), & can also backup both infield/outfield positions.
I think this would be a pretty even deal talent-wise. Would you make this deal if you were Jocketty? Do you think the Rockies would pull the trigger?
