    I only take Vasquez on if LA takes Griffey.

    I would be more than willing to do that. I'd even give them Dane Sarhina! :MandJ:

    A statement that will live in infamy

    "As we move to the holidays, we've got discussions with several people and we're hopeful that we can continue to add to our talent base," said O'Brien. "But it's very difficult to predict the outcome, so what you in essence have is, you have Plan A, then the fallback position of Plan B, then Plan C and so on, and they're all sort of going at the same time in various stages."
    Could Plan A, B, and C culminate in the procurement of a third baseman, also known as the "hot corner" (using fingers to make quote marks), thus setting wheels in motion for Plan B to come to fruition, which set off a thermonuclear reaction that allowed Plan C to climax?

    Re: Randa

    best all-around player when he's at his all-time low point in terms of value.
    We're giving up Adam Dunn now?

    Dealing Kearns for Vazquez is risky, but it's not very often that small market teams don't have to take on risk when they make deals.

    If Dan'O does this deal and we get the 2003 Vazquez then the Reds start to look really, really interesting as a sleeper team in 2005.
    We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

    AD is not our best all-around player, Redsfaithful... he strikes out too much.

And John Allen will do it if he thinks the fans want it.

    One year signings are good in theory, but with the Reds FO it will likely turn into another Jimmy Haynes or Paul Wilson.


    It's like my kids when they sy "just five more minutes, dad." Well, it's never just five more minutes. And with the Reds, it's not likely to be just one year.
    What you say is very true. But with EE down on the farm, a shrewd GM would hope for a good couple of months from Randa and a trade deadline flip. That is where the value of signing some of these guys can come in even if you aren't ready for the playoffs yet.
