    I'd definately trade for Shealy. I'm not sure if I'd give up LaRue for him, but maybe Mercker and some prospects. I'd actually prefer him to Choi. Shealy and Hatteberg would make a nice R/L platoon at first.

    I'd still like to save LaRue for a trade for a pitcher (*cough* Brad Penny *cough*). I know most of you think that LA would never give up Penny for LaRue, but I wouldn't be surprised if that deal went down within the next few days.

    Here's my Rockies trade idea:

    Larue for Shealy, RHP Juan Morillo (AA) and LHP Francisco Morales (High A)

    Uh, yeah. Didn't think you guys were that knowledgable on your Rox prospects. Hey I'd throw in Denorfia too if they gave us those two pitchers.

    Larue and Mercker for Penny.

    Dave Williams and Matt Belisle for Shealy and a minor leaguer.

    Reds rotation is Penny, Harang, Arroyo, Milton, Claussen. Bullpen logjam is cured with following guys left: Shackelford, Hammond, Burns, Weathers, White, Coffey, Wagner.

    Re: Ryan Shealy

    Doubtful that the Rockies would want a catcher in return. They dealt for Torrealba this offseaon and still have J.D. Closser on the roster and Iannetta coming soon. Seems like too much of a logjam for them to be interested in LaRue. What I would like to do is relieve them of Closser (in addition to Shealy) and see if the guy can regain some of his pre-2005 form. Now, they do seem to need an OF, so if you offer Denorfia and at least one and probably two pitchers from a group including Belisle, Dumatrait, Chick, Germano and you may have something. The other possibility would be to substitute those younger pitchers for either Merker or Weathers considering O'Dowd has shown a proclivity for older, overpaid relievers in the past.

    If you can get Closser in addition to Shealy, then that frees you up to deal LaRue or Valentin, which with LaRue offers you the opportunity to get a pretty good return.
