    Catchers make good managers. Look at how many have one a World Series.

    If you guys don't want to deal LaRue for Wilson, how would you feel about Valentin for Wilson? I know the Bucs want a pitcher for Craig, but they need catching too.

    I'd do Valentin for Wilson, if that's the deal on the table...pull the trigger. I like Wilson.

    Wilson's career OPS is 20 points higher then Casey's.

    He K's a ton, but I say, the more the merrier.

    Why not Jr. in LF and Denorfia in CF keeping Dunn at 1B? Dunn is a terrible OF with very poor range. Junior would be a phenomenal LF.

    2 problems with that:

    1. Dunn doesn't want to play firstbase;
    2. Griffey doesn't want to play LF, as he feels it will be harder on his legs.

    Re: Reds interested in Craig Wilson

    A couple of months ago on this board, I suggested Valentin for Wilson after listening to KDKA. I decided at the time that it wasn't likely because of Wilson's salary.

    'course, you know the way teams like to bring back players who started their career with the team? The Pirates are weak at second base. Seems the Reds might throw in a certain aging second baseman who used to play for the Pirates....

    I wouldn't doubt that. Put me on the Valentin and Womack for Wilson bandwagon!!

    True, and I agree whole heartedly. I was just curious why that scenario was not brought up.
