    Outfielder to be traded

    Dan O'Brien, on with Lance, just said in order to get pitching, and seeing as the outfield is a surplus for this team, trading one of them is the avenue they will likely go.

    Now the debate....who goes and for what?

    Here's where DanO trades Dunn for Zack Greinke.

    He's going to trade Dunn and get 10 cents on the dollar. I just know it.

    Dunn is the only one that will bring back pitching, and unfortunately DanO's idea of pitching is Milton and Ortiz. I could see him trading Dunn for Bronson Arroyo or Mike Maroth. Really, I could.

    I'm going to hate this offseason.

    I don't know if knee jerk reactions like this are good for the team.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Re: Outfielder to be traded

    Lets ask a question...

    If the Reds would have traded WMP or Kearns in the offseason do you think that would have been wise?

    In hinsight, yes...but in the real world...NO! It would have been STUPID!!! As STUPID as signing Wilson, Ortiz and Milton...though I still have hope for the Milton deal to work out (when we trade him to get a couple MLB ready prospects) here's why.

    Junior had a comeback year but we didn't and HE didn't even know if he was going to be able to play at all on his reconstructed body. Now we are a year down the road and can see that Junior can still perform and we can safely trade one of the outfielders without losing production and performance.

    Just MHO

    Of course it would've been wise. The Indians offered Cliff Lee for Kearns. Had we done that, we'd been a lot better off, even if Jr was injured all year.

    It made no sense to hold onto an OF surplus when we need pitching as badly as we did. Why worry about the depth chart in the OF (possiblity of injuries) when you don't even have 5 legitimate guys for the rotation.

    Had we gotten Cliff Lee, we could've used Ortiz's money to sign a backup OF and had a lot of change left over.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Re: Outfielder to be traded

    Enough of the money whining. Dunn and Griffey(even though he should be) aren't dealable. Lindner has the nix on that.

    It will be Pena, you can almost be sure of that. O'brien never has been high on him and with Denorfia ready to ascend, Pena's been replaced.

    Has he ever publicly acknowledged that he is the GM of this team? LOL!
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...
