    Stanton is the face of the Marlins. Both he and club management like it that way. There is zero chance they will be moving him anytime soon.

    Cardinals outfielder Carlos Beltran will be in high demand this winter, writes Buster Olney of ESPN.com (Insider sub. req'd). Olney feels that the Mets, Rangers, Yankees, Orioles, Phillies, and Reds could all be players for Beltran. At 36, Beltran may prefer to go to an American League club and DH.

    I like beltran but agree he may need to go to the AL to DH.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    Platoon for 20M a year? That would be $33M for a Ludwick/Choo platoon in 2013 (counting Luddy's $4.5M option in 2015). Not even the Yankees or Dodgers would consider that kind of money for a LF.

    I know. That's why I was incredulous at the suggestion.

    Per MLBTradeRumors; Sheldon is under the impression Bailey will be made available. Their is a sense that Homer isn't perceptive to signing a long term contract so the Reds may look deal him.

    Re: Official trade rumor thread.

    Is anyone else getting the weird feeling this might be the offseason we have been waiting for where the Reds make a bunch of moves and it ends up not being nearly as good of a result we all hoped for?

    Reds might choose to make moves for the long term and the team next year might suffer.

    Reds might choose to make moves for next year, add some tested veterans, which may help next year.

    Or a combination.

    No way to judge until we see the direction. They have plenty of guys who could depart but we have no idea the kinds of players they will add.

    Internal Yankees candidates such as Pete Mackanin, Tony Pena, Don Wakamatsu and Dave Miley are also on Marchand's list, while high-profile names like Dusty Baker, Tony La Russa and Lou Piniella are seen as long shots.
    Since when did the Yankees become the Reds of the last decade? I thought that was Washington's job.

    This would be just like the Reds to grab an ex-Cardinal after he's been productive for them and ready to decline.

    Buster blocked me on twitter because I used to say things like "You just named half of MLB in a trade rumor, you get paid for this?"

    The Cardinals have the same see decision to make with Beltran as the Reds have with Arroyo. I don't know if a qualifying offer will/should be made to Beltran.

    What kind of feeling will you get if they do nothing ? I don't think that they will improve very much, payroll is to high. I don't want them to keep players that don't want to be here. We haven't heard the fallout with Brandon Phillips over the Baker firing yet. That said I don't want them to stand pat.

    Oh, I don't want them to stand pat at all. I am just nervous/anxious I guess - but that does not mean I am not excited as well.
