    KEARNS almost Traded last night!

    My Friend works with the Clippers. Last night the press area was a buzz with trade rumors. A trade was supposed to go through but it didnt. KEEP your eyes open. This comes from the High Ups.

    Austin Kearns to the YANKEES

    Wang and Cano to the Reds*

    It's almost for sure that we are gonna give them KEARNS, but the return hasn't been worked out yet. This trade is still in the very early stages, so it might fall through.

    I just thought I'd let you know what the people at the Clippers are talking about.

    If you get this one right, your reputation will get to 200 immediately.

    If you're wrong though... watch out!

    That would be a terrible trade for the Reds..yankee prospects are 90% junk.

    Yeah, I'm not making this up. If it doesnt go through you can ban me for life.

    It could have been knee jerk reactions by cincy and the yanks, but look out.

    My source has been with the Clippers for three years. And NO, he's not a hot dog vender if that's what you think. He works in the press area.

    This trade simply doesn't make much sense. we don't have much of a use for Wang. He's not really very good. We also don't need Cano very badly. We still have two options better than him. If we are going to trade Kearns it better be for a good, pitcher instead of trading for quantity. I wouldn't look too far into this rumor.

    The Reds can certainly get a better return for Kearns...can't they?

    I worry about rumor-mongering on our little minor league board here LOL! I don't know very much about what we would get in this deal. Does someone have stats on these two? Also, I fear another fleecing if pitching is involved. See: Ed Yarnall, Brandon Claussen

    The word here in NY is that the only reason Wang, Cano and now Hinn (P) tonight are in the big leagues is to showcase them. However the Yanks are looking for bullpen/pitching help. Although they'd probably plug Kearns in LF and move Womack back to 2B.

    I'll keep an ear out to NY radio today. Haven't heard much about trades, except for the perpetual "Roger Clemens will be back in NY by July"

    Yankees don't have much to offer for Kearns... I think the Reds will hold out on trading Austin or WMP until they see if they can move JR first.
