    What about EdE, Pena, and Homer for Crisp and Sowers? Seems a lot more even, and therefore a tough call. Trading top prospects, and a future 3B stud and mammoth of an OF for a more polished one? Would you do it?

    For that, I want Ryan Garko coming back the Reds way as well. And I'd be willing to include Kearns instead of Pena to get it. Heck, I'd throw in any other single tradeable prospect the Indians would want if that would be enough. They love Sowers, but there's a point at which you have to re-evaluate.

    Batting Order 2006:

    2B- Ryan Freel
    CF- Covelli Crisp
    RF- Adam Dunn
    LF- Ken Griffey Jr.
    1B- Ryan Garko
    SS- Felipe Lopez
    C- Larue/Valentin
    3B- Rich Aurilia

    Yes, for that return, I would live with Rich Aurilia manning third base. What to do with Pena? Send him to Anaheim for one of the bajillion MLB-ready prospects they don't seem to want to actually give a position to (among other possibilities).

    I was thinking, I would pull the trigger to a Kearns for Westbrook deal especially if we could get RHP Fernando Cabrera in the deal. Of course we might have to add a player to the deal.

    Kearns for Westbrook is heavily in the Indians favor, they should throw in the prospects, not us.
    Go Gators!

    IMO, no. He needs time in AAA. But he's the right age and, thusfar, has had the right kind of success that he may not need an entire year in AAA.
