    Re: RUMOR - RUMOR: Kearns' possible destination

    It all depends on the pitcher. I wouldn't do Encarnacion alone for Meche, let alone throw in Kearns and Bailey to add a 2B and a prospect. If it were a name top of the rotation stud like Harden or someone of similar potential, I'd go for it.

    What if it's Zito and Meillo plus a PBTNL? Zito's certainly a name starter, but I'm a little gun-shy aroung him.

    It would leave you with Freel/Aurilla at 3B, unless there's a late-signing FA out there that I'm not aware of. Maybe the Pirate's would do a Milton-for-Randa deal.

    The A's have an expensive 3rd sacker who has more than a few gold gloves.

    I disagree with this. You only feel it grows on trees because you are a Reds fans. You know Braves fans think good pitching grows on trees.

    If offense grew on trees, the Astros would have dominated the world, and the Cubs would have made the playoffs.

    I understand that the REDS could field a contending offense if we traded those guys, but even an ace-type pitcher wouldn't help this team be better than .500 if our offense falls back this year.

    The Brewers had an average offense (16th in runs scored), and above average pitching (10th in ERA) and still were .500.

    Sorry spitball, missed your mention of Zito. That was my thought too if this has legs.

    I think the Angels are the only logical team for this rumor.

    They wouldn't be able to get EE back and they need offense like a the Reds do.

    Re: RUMOR - RUMOR: Kearns' possible destination

    So the Reds give up their hottest commodity (Kearns), the best prospect to come out of their system recently (EE), and the top-rated prospect in the organization (Bailey) in a deal for one non-ace pitcher, a 2B prospect, and a PTBNL?

    Sounds like your source is smoking crack.

    I'd love to see Howie Kendrick come to the Reds. I just don't see the Angels sacrificing a starter at this point. They're pretty thin there, and Colon is considered something of a question mark, health/conditioning-wise.
    The only team with in the AL West with spare pitching is Oakland.

    I agree that it seems like someone's wishful thinking. I'm sure Krivsky can make a deal like this -- I just hope he's not that desperate to "make something happen."

    The Angels have one of the deepest systems in all of baseball. They are contenders. I just can't believe they would move a difference maker starter for youth.

    Re: RUMOR - RUMOR: Kearns' possible destination

    The A's have Eric Chavez. The Mariners have Adrian Beltre. The Rangers have Hank Blalock. I can't imagine Encarnacion's heading to any of those places.

    The Angels just dealt for Edgardo Alfonso with Chone Figgins and Dallas McPherson as backup options and perhaps Brandon Wood coming as soon as 2007. Encarnacion to that division just doesn't seem to make a lot of sense. At best it would be a case of a team bleeding the Reds for no real reason.

    I doubt Krivsky, or anybody really, would put up with that. So that's a gaping hole off the jump.

    The Rangers and and Mariners don't have much in the way of pitching to deal either.

    r-i-l, I've got to agree with what others saying, this one sounds like wishful thinking on someone's part.
