    Re: Dunn for Lidge?

    Anyone think the O's would do Dunn for Bedard, Penn, and maybe Markakis?

    Re: Dunn for Lidge?

    As I have said before, once the Reds have five solid openers, they can then worry about a closer. Trading Dunn for Lidge is just a bad idea. Very few closers last more than 4-5 years while a solid hitter can last up to 10.

    Nor did I see any poster say he claimed that. They simply considered if they liked the idea of trading a young stud hitter for a young stud closer. The consensus seems to be no.

    Baltimore wouldn't even do Bedard for Dunn, if you believe the rumors.

    Re: Dunn for Lidge?

    Here's my list of realistic players/packages I'd make for Adam Dunn

    Anaheim : Ervin Santana and Brandon Wood
    Atlanta : Kyle Davies and Brian McCann
    Arizona : Conor Jackson or Carlos Quentin and Stephen Drew
    Baltimore : Erik Bedard and Nick Markasis
    Boston : Jon Papelbon and Jon Lester
    Cleveland : Jeremy Sowers or Adam Miller and Ryan Garko
    Chicago (AL) : Brandon McCarthy and Brian Anderson
    Los Angeles : Chad Billingsley and Andy LaRoche or Russ Martin
    New York (NL) : Lastings Milledge and Aaron Heilman
    New York (AL) : Eric Duncan, Phillip Hughes, and Sean Henn (they're rich!)
    Oakland : Daric Barton and Rich Harden
    Pittsburgh : Zach Duke....straight up
    Texas : Thomas Diamond and Ian Kinsler
    Toronto : Roy Halladay and Orlando Hudson

    That's about it.

    Re: Dunn for Lidge?

    I've said before that any deal with the Astros would have to start with either Oswalt or Lidge. Even at that, while I might do Oswalt close to straight up, it would take more than just Lidge. Say, Burke, Nieves and another very good minor league starter - or maybe Backe and Lane - (with maybe one other player coming from us).

    Don't think the Astros would buy that and I'm still not sure it would be worth it to deal Dunn either.

    dougflynn, you're pretty high on Zach Duke aren't you?

    In a trade with Toronto it takes Hudson in addition to Halladay to get you to move Dunn, but you'll do Dunn for Duke straight up?

    Re: Dunn for Lidge?

    Dunn for Lidge makes sense, if...

    You're going to turn around and deal Lidge for a better haul than you'd get by dealing Dunn.

    (Personally, I have little reason to believe that DanO's the guy to hatch such a scheme, let alone carry it out.)

    I've mentioned it before, but I'll say it again. Two years ago, my uncle did some freelance work for the Cards & MLB.com. He hung around the St. Loo clubhouse during the season, as well as the post-season. The general consensus among the Cards during the '04 playoffs was that Lidge had the sickest stuff of anyone in the NL. Anyone.

    Now it's time to turn in a paper & take a final.

    Ciao.

    I bet St. Louis wouldn't trade Pujols for him, not matter how "sick" his stuff is.

    Speaking of "sick", I've had the head cold for days now, maybe I'll get over it by spring.
