    Should the Reds try to get Clement?

    Clement seems to have fallen out of favor in Boston. There's rumors of him having off-field problems.. I think he could be had fairly easily in a trade. Would you trade Kearns or Pena for Clement? Or Someone else?

    Let's assume the money isn't isn't critical (getting him isn't going to affect how long Dunn will stay, etc)
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I don't offer Kearns or Pena for Clement. I offer Freel. He's a good replacement for Damon, and Boston fans will love him.

    I would trade for Clement in an instant. Even struggling last year, partially because of the comebacker incident, he put up a ERA under 4.50 and and a 1.3X WHIP. Unless there are real injury concerns we don't know about, that would be a great addition.

    And the trade will never be completed because the Boston front office will laugh themselves to death. All of them.

    Re: Should the Reds try to get Clement?

    When I watched Clement last year in the playoffs, there was definitely something wrong. The comeback incident could have been the result of a poor 2nd half, but I'm not so sure it is the only problem. I think I only watched him pitch once in the playoffs (might have been his only game I'm not really sure), so I'm no Clement-expert, but I do know that trading for him is risky. He was Rick Ankiel wild with his pitches. Even on the balls that were strikes, they weren't located properly. Catcher sets up outside, he's throwing in, vice versa. Balls high and tight, when the catcher is low and away. Just things like that makes me think something is injured, or he's having mental issues. Either way, I think the value that you would need to give in order to get him is too high. However, if they are willing to trade him for a low return, then by all means, go for it.

    I would definitely trade Freel for him, but like sava said, that would be laughed at.

    I'm not sure the Freel for Clement deal would get completely laughed at, as long as the Reds took on all of his contract (which should be reasonable considering the reports of DanO trying to sign Morris). Someone else may need to be thrown in. Too bad we don't still have Howard. Also I would look at a Freel and Kearns/Pena for Clement and Delcarmen. If you could get Shoppach instead of Delcarmen, all the better.

    Freel and a pitching prospect like Calvin Medlock might do it. With Damon gone, and Manny still a possibility to be traded who exactly plays OF in Boston? And who leads off? It's really not that far-fetched. Clement is obviously out of favor, and the Reds would likely be getting his entire salary, another plus.

    I wouldn't give up much to get Clement--he's really expensive, like a certain other FA that I won't mention.

    I probably would go for a Freel for Clement, but that's about it--unless Boston wants to float up some payroll relief.

    And then I palm off half of M_____'s contract on someone, while picking up the tab on the other.

    I'd be willing to give the Bosox Aurilia and Womack for Clement. Wait, doesn't Boston still need a GM? I'll throw in DanO as well.

    Why Not Throw In David Weathers/ Kent Merker Along With Freel

    Someone From: Milton, Harang, Claussen, Williams, Wilson (If Ready) Would Have To Head To The Pen.. My Choice Would Be Wilson. In Order For Wilson To Regain Strength And Control Again He'd Have To Work Low Innings And Build From That Into More Innings.
