    Latest Kearns rumor

    http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/3601644

    From Ken Rosenthal's latest posting. It mentions the Braves, Royals, and Nationals as interested. Griffey blurb leads the piece with Kearns section a few paragraphs down.

    The Braves remain interested in Reds OF Austin Kearns, who also is on the Royals' and Nationals' wish lists. The Reds, however, don't want to trade Kearns until he increases his value to the point where they will get a quality pitcher in return.
    then maybe they ought to play him instead of Rich Aurilia.

    Hmmm...interesting stuff, if this has any validity at all it seems that Kearns will not be a Red by the end of the season assuming he plays to his potential. While moving him may or may not be good for the team he is my favorite player, and I for one would miss him.

    Yeah, I'd love for the Reds to make a run at one of the A's young guns such as Blanton or Haren. But I highly doubt they'd give up either one.

    Jimbo has nothing we want, the pitchers he has that are good make too much money for us.

    The Braves have been after him for some time now. Perhaps we could aim for position prospects too - Brian McCann perhaps as part of it.

    Honestly, we need a pitcher out of the deal but that shouldn't be the only focus.

    Re: Latest Kearns rumor

    I will say this, the Braves outfield is getting to be atrocious with Brian Jordan and Mondesi running out there. So the value Kearns could possibly bring to them is probably very enticing to the Braves brass. That being said, I agree that I don't like our team trading with the Braves, we always seem to get shafted whenever we deal with them. I say, and some may argue, that if he returns to the rookie Kearns form we don't deal him for anything less than a SOLID number two.

    trading one of the young OFs isn't going to do anything to help in the short help. The Reds need at a minimun of 6-7 new pitchers. The farm system is also devoid of OF prospects for the most part. The only one at the moment is Dickerson who is 23 at High A.
