    Mez/Heisey for Brothers/Young Jr.

    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?

    No, it seems like selling Mez way too low, and I would take Heisey over Young. Brothers' walk rate is also scary, and his LOB% is obviously not sustainable.

    The rockies would def make this trade because it is so one-sided in their favor.

    The reds would never consider doing this trade for one simple reason: who would the backup catcher be?

    There were rumors that they wanted Mez in the off-season. Personally, since you brought it up, I just checked out Rosario's stats & he does look like the better of the two C prospects. It looks like we may have missed the train on striking a Mez deal.

    I do like Rex Brothers alot though. 25yr LH, '09 1st rd (comp) pick, two good years experience in MLB, 0.31 era this year (heck he just picked up the save against us last week). '09 Scouting report: http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/events/draft/...ntent=brothers. If not Mez highlighting the deal, do u think the Rox might have their eye on someone else that we've got?

    Can't wait to have Corky catch 50 games! In two years The Reds will have a 34 year old catcher and Corky, can't get any better than that.

    Step back for a moment and realize you are talking about trading one of the hardest positions to fill on a baseball team with one of the easiest positions to fill on a baseball team.

    Would rather have Fowler for prospects than Young Jr and Brothers.

    Heisey and a few prospects for Willingham and Perkins?

    That sounds like a bad APBA trade

    Re: Mez/Heisey for Brothers/Young Jr.

    On an afternoon where "The Confederate" Curtis Partch was by far our best reliever, I'm pretty sure a 25yr old LH 1st rd pick w/ a 0.30 era (1 run in 29.2 innings) could've infact made quite a difference........just sayin'

    So offer up something that isn't a mid 20's second year catcher.

    Re: Mez/Heisey for Brothers/Young Jr.

    You know, by the end of the year you all are gonna wish that we had made this trade. Maz can't even beat out Hanigan offensively, and is also 1/2 a disease defensively. Heisey will make 0 Cincinnati impact this year & will be let go either this year or next.

    Rex Brothers: http://colorado.rockies.mlb.com/team...meType=%27R%27 is gonna be a superstar for the next 4 years, and even EY Jr. will catch on somewhere and end up having a better career than either Robinson or Lutz.

    We shall all see

    Re: Mez/Heisey for Brothers/Young Jr.

    I Like Brothers, mostly because he's the second major leaguer from my alma mater (the first is his pitching coach and the third is in Pensacola) but trading Mez for his would be a mistake.
