    Does anyone get the feeling that DanO threw down all of his binders this morning and said "Screw it, I'm going for it, and I'm going for it all" :MandJ:

    So I'm gonna guess the conference is just to announce Randa and the keeping of Jiminez, nothing more?

    and the resigning of John Allen after Lindner walked in his office and threw his budget projections on his desk...after putting it through the paper shredder :MandJ:

    Now that would make it a good day.

    I'm pleased with the Randa signing. Should be interesting to see what happens with our 4 OFs (Assuming Griffey is healthy...big assumption I know).
    How about this one? If I am DanO and the Dodgers insist on Dunn, I counter with Vasquez (entire contract paid) and Jackson for Dunn. They want to join me in that ballpark, we can talk. Otherwise, they can think about someone else.

    Vasquez for Casey would be interesting, especially since Green goes in that deal, and I don't think LA is ready to give the job to Choi.

    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.
    I think when healthy Kearns is a better all-around player than Dunn by a significant margin, in terms of defensive play, baseball IQ, strike zone selectivity. Dunn made huge strides offensively in 2004, but I'm still not convinced he can impact the game on both sides.

    As for the risk, this is just not the type of risk you take IMO. What's it going to do to the payroll? Vazquez, JR, Casey, Graves would basically take up about 80% of the payroll. And what happens when JR inevitably gets hurt and WMP's #'s slide when pitchers adjust to him? We've always operated under the premise that we've got this tremendous depth in the OF, and that replaceable parts are readily available. That's true to a degree, as Guillen and Encarnacion put up tremendous numbers as Reds. But the return we got on them was minimal, and we ended up going from 4 men for 2 spots to Dunn and two scrubs starting by the time August rolled around.

    And Vazquez has logged a tremendous number of innings for a pretty young guy, and struggled as soon as he got into an environment outside of Montreal (ie more pressure). IMO, if you're going to take a risk, do it with a younger cheaper guy. I agree that the only way Vazquez should come back is if JR is involved, because any other way the payroll would just be strangled for the next 2-3 years.

    Vazquez for Griffey would be a steal. Vazquez for Casey and Vazquez for Kearns would hard to swalow, but might make sense (especially Casey $). Vazquez for Dunn is plain stupid.
