    Replace "Clement" with "Womack".

    Pass.

    Marte is probably a longshot because I think they want to do Marte and Kearns for Crisp and stuff, which is highway robbery.

    We ought to just offer Freel for Marte and Delcarmen and go from there. Freel is everything Crisp is, if not better as a CF/Leadoff.
    I am with you on this one. Boston has several guys that interest me, moreso than Clement. I like Shoppach, Marte & Lester (even though I am not sure Boston is willing to deal him either...ala Papelbon). Clement's salary and inconsistency worry me. I would rather see AK in a Reds uniform with the possibility of boosting his trade value, than taking on Clement. Now if Wily Mo was their interest...

    I don't buy that NL/AL thing, only difference is the NL plays the game right and the AL runs a DH up there..how is that different to a pitcher pitching?

    Most DH's are more proficient with a bat than are pitchers. Obviously, not all NL pitchers are easy outs, but I imagine any pitcher would rather face a pitcher than a designated hitter.
    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.

    The NL is more of a smallball style of baseball, using the stolen base, get 'em on, get 'em over, get 'em in. In the AL it is homerpalooza.

    I like Lester. I think Marte has been overrated, and I want no part of Shoppach (slow bat).

    I think Shoppach would be a good pick up. He may have a slow bat, but hitting improves with experience/repetition. I would have never expected for Larue to have a season like he had last year based on his early years. As for Marte, he could very easily be overrated, but he would be an improvement to our ML system and his talent can't be overlooked, imo. I would love to get Lester, but I just don't see us prying him away. From things I have read, both he & Papelbon are untouchable...unfortunately.

    I tend to overvalue our players (at times) and expect more in return than they are probably worth. I just don't see AK for Clement as a benefit for the Reds in the long haul.

    That doesn't totally disprove what I said. The American League is just really bad at executing their style of play.

    Kearns for Clement just isn't worth it. It's not a deal that is going to maximize the value of our assets.

    Except the "asset" Kearns has a diminished value except for many on this board.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.
