    This could also be a sign and trade. LA needs a 3rd baseman as bad as we do. I doubt it, but you never know. LA just signed Jose Valetin, but I don't think they want him to be their answer at 3rd.

    I can't envision Austin Kearns being traded straight up for Javier Vasquez. That would be absolutely stupid IMO. Now, if we get Ishii, Vasquez, and a prospect, I would like that.

    True, but anyone can tinker in proposals. OB stepping up and pulling the trigger on a deal of this nature is unchartered territory.

    You're under the assumption that it was DanO who backed off the trigger. That wasn't the case in the possible deal(s) with Oakland.

    What exactly is the source of this?

    Anyways, I like it. Good stop gap for Edwin. Kearns in RF is the best place for him.

    More than likely, the Reds are the ones that are going to have to kick in something extra on their side in a Kearns for Vazquez deal because you know they'll ask for cash to be kicked in on the LA side. That means the Reds will have to add players of value (Freel?) to get that big chunk o' cash they want in return.

    You're right in that I don't know what all has gone down, but I'm working under the premise that OB has been asking for a lot in return.....a "no brainer" type of arrangement that would offer little to question.

    Much as the name might seem the same, I can back up BRedz. He's on the money here.
