    Maybe his ankle?

    People who are advocating trading Brandon Claussen you don't trade quality young arms just for the heck of it. You stockpile it. And even if you don't think that Claussen is a quality young arm you have to give him a chance to succeed and fail. When you're in the situation the Reds are in you don't just start giving away and trading away young pitching. Unless it's crap pitching like Danny Graves.

    Best you can hope for is maybe a low quality A arm. There's just no way anyone is giving up anything of quality for Danny Graves.
    Well, he gave away Colby Lewis and Ben Kozlowski, did he not?

    So a decent prospect isn't out of the question, especially with the Reds picking up most of the tab. No Kinsler, Danks or Arias, though.

    I doubt they want to make that trade.

    People I think we are grossly overestimating the interest in Graves here..I'll be shocked if he's traded at all..I see a release.

    I would venture to guess the reason nothing has been done is that the Reds are trying to see which team will pay the most of his salary for this year. The player in return is probably less important in the FO's mind than trying to squeeze out a few more bucks from the team they are going to eventually send him.
