    Kearns: Still available

    http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/5463408

    The Reds resolved their outfield logjam by trading Wily Mo Pena to the Red Sox for right-hander Bronson Arroyo, but it's not out of the question that they would move Austin Kearns if they got the right pitcher in return.

    Chris Denorfia, a Triple-A player often compared to the Brewers' overachieving Brady Clark, could step in for Kearns, though some view Denorfia as more of a fourth outfielder while Kearns is a potential No. 5 hitter.

    The Reds' depth would be compromised if they traded Kearns, especially if Ken Griffey Jr. were injured, but Ryan Freel, Jacob Cruz and Quinton McCracken still would be in the mix, and outfielders are easier to find than pitchers.

    I don't buy it. Not now. If he gets red hot, maybe. But they'll wait till stock is up

    Why would they start doing that now?

    It depends what you would get for him. If the Marlins come calling with Olsen or Vargas then I would do it. But they have to much better then Dave Williams, OF is no longer overstocked, no need to give away guys.

    I'll trade Pena for Arroyo anyday of the week. It gave us an actual rotation.

    If they're trying to deal Kearns, batting him behind Scott Hatteberg is not exactly the way to help his value.

    The Reds have no surplus of OFs. Counting on Jr to play more than 100 games is likely a losing proposition, Denorfia is insurance for that.

    If Kearns will bring something even decent in return I would move him now. I hate to say it but I only see his value decreasing. As traderumor said his spot in the line-up will sure not help things.

    Kearns won't be traded. No team will offer the pot of gold that the Reds want for him unless he starts playing better. If he starts playing better, then they won't trade him period.

    Maybe the Cards will trade their new superstar Josh Hancock for him?

    If the right deal comes around, I have no doubt that Krivsky will pull the trigger and ship Kearns away.

    At some point, if the Reds want to get back to playing winning baseball, they're going to have to make deals that restock the AA-AAA level of their farm system. Based on what I've heard from Castellini, sitting around and waiting for the O'Brien draft classes to "grow up" isn't an option he's going to consider. Somebody has to be trade fodder, and the team would be beyond foolish to touch Dunn, Lopez or Encarnacion. That doesn't leave a lot of names...

    Speaking of foolish and Dunn. Tracy Jones said the Reds need to move Dunn for pitching.
