    "Unfounded Rumors"

    From mlbtraderumors.com:

    This site mentions several rumors that could be pulled off in the next week:

    Dunn to Baltimore or LA Dodgers

    Kerns Still involved in the BoSox/Indians mess

    Griffey to Atlanta

    Once again nothing really concrete but some interesting rumors...

    Rumors of Adam Dunn to LA with possibly Lowe or Penny coming to Cincinnati. The Dodgers can keep Lowe. I'd like for Penney to be a Red, but he alone isn't enough for Dunn.

    Bedard or Penn are rumored to be available for Dunn from the O's.

    Brandon Moss is being reported as the prospect that would come back to Cincy in the three team deal involving Kearns, Clement and Crisp. Anybody know anything about him?

    Brandon Moss is a RF prospect of the Red Sox. I checked a couple sites to get info from him and they all included the words "overrated prospect".

    These are the two most recent entries on him from Rotoworld.com:

    Moss has slumped over the last couple of months, leaving him at .261/.336/.436 in 129 games. He's an overrated prospect, but there's still a chance that the 21-year-old could become a major league right fielder

    After playing just 23 games in the Florida State League last year, Moss made the jump to Double-A this season and hit .268/.337/.441. The Red Sox may use him in right field next year should Trot Nixon get hurt again, but he could also be considered trade bait.

    BAL refused to trade Bedard for Dunn last year, IIRC.

    Re: "Unfounded Rumors"

    Trading Adam Dunn for Derek Lowe or Brad Penny alone was NOT what I had in mind when I was imagining the new owners coming in and making some big moves.

    I don't like the idea of the Matt Clement trade, but I understand its validity. This, though -- they'd have to be downright idiots to make a trade like that.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Here's some facts.

    Kullman has contacted every team about a possible trade, and there are interested participants. I have no names mentioned, or details, but unlike previous regimes, they aren't sitting on their hands - they are trying to make something happen.

    Judging from what you heard at your lunchon yesterday, is there any hope of something getting done either today or tomorrow? If not, how soon?

    At one point, Kullman said pretty much, don't be surprised if I have another media release/newspaper story (can't remember his exact words) for you guys in the next couple days.

    That was yesterday.

    If something is in the works, I would expect it soon.

    I was happy for DanO to do nothing because whenever he "did" something, it tended to make things worse.

    I don't want a move to just make a move. I hope Kullman had the big picture in mind because it is hard to see than anything could be done to make the 06 Reds a contender.

    If a move is to be made it had better be a good for the long term benefit of the Reds. I don't see that trading Dunn or Kearns at this point fits the description unless they get a lot of young talent.

    If a deal has to be made, trade Womack.

    Re: "Unfounded Rumors"

    I posted an article from the Enquirer over on the Matt Clement thread that quotes Kullman as saying that he does not want to trade Austin Kearns. He stated in earlier articles that the interest isn't as high in Wily Mo Pena. But he told the media yesterday basically to be ready....

    This is getting curiouser and curiouser....

    Re: "Unfounded Rumors"

    So if all the rumors are true, the starting outfield will be Freel, Stratton and Denorfia?

    If true, that sure isn't a ringing endorsement for Mike Flanagan as GM.

    edit: Um, I meant Jim Beattie, but I guess it works both ways.
