    Yes, Bowden has been known to make outrageous first offers to get conversation going as well. I remember him offering Jr for Vlad shortly after the Reds got Jr.. The point of offering Soriano for Dunn might've been to see what it really would take for the Nationals to get Dunn.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Or it could have been an attempt in trying to cover up one off the stupidist trades in recent memory.

    Looks like the Soriano problem still hasn't been resolved.

    "We've been pretty clear about being unclear," general manager Jim Bowden said
    .

    We've had some doosies around here lately, haven't we?

    Yeah, I liked that one. Sounds like he's gone to the DanO school of obfuscation.

    No wonder this team has lacked direction the past 8-10 years or so. Nobody knows what direction these guys want to go in because nobody understands what they're saying (or doing, for that matter).

    Here's one for you guys...

    Soriano for Pena/Milton

    1. Payroll is basically a wash for this season and gives the Reds some flexibility beyond '06 if they choose to flip Soriano.

    2. Despite his defense, Soriano represents a big upgrade offensively even over guys like Aurilia and Freel.

    3. Gives the Reds a chance to buy Soriano relatively low since the whole squabble is leaving Washington in a bind, and then if he produces as expected the first half, allows them to sell him higher at the trading deadline for prospects/pitching.

    4. Keeps Narron from running Milton out there every fifth day.

    I want no part of Soriano whatsoever. He's Wily Mo Pena with a much larger salary, worse defense, and a bad attitude. I'd rather just pay Milton's full salary and ship him to Washington for a 26 year old catcher in high A who can't hit .200.

    Funny thread, thought I'd revisit it.
