    Who to trade?

    So what (if anything) is going to happen in the next few days? They obviosuly need a lot of help in the bullpen department. Who would you trade, and what relievers are you interested in? At the current time I'm thinking Freel has a lot of value, but I really don't want to see him go.
    And this one belongs to the Reds

    I think Rich might be on the block.

    Which would be no problem with me. Crowded on 2nd.

    Freel and Kearns seem to me to be the most likely candidates although I really don't want the Reds to trade either of them. TMBS, the Reds have some serious bullpen issue that aren't likely to resolve themselves.

    Those are the only two guys I could really see being traded who are going to bring anything in return.

    Freel is a fire cracker. Put emphasis on his power and trade Aurillia. Womack can be Freel's relief.

    I don't think so. He seems to be a pretty good fit for the Reds as a platoon / utilty for the Reds and I don't think anyone would offer anything for him. Remeber, anyone could have had him in the offseason for nothing and no one chose to sign him.

    Trading Freel and Kearns would hurt the offense. But I'd be willing to trade both of them for immediate and long-term bullpen (or, obviously, starter) help.

    Well they chose not to pay what the Reds would pay. Someone could have been interested, though only at a veteran minimum type price. If a team had a need now, they might well be willing to up the ante for him.

    That said I still think of him more as a corner IFer now and someone the Reds should hang on to for depth at all 4 IF positions.

    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I agree.

    If the trades were good ones.

    I think they could slot Denorfia and/or Phillips in the lineup and get by.

    LaRue seems the most obvious choice ... rumors were swirling a while back about a LaRue for Penny trade.

    True, I could see either Larue or Valentin being traded.

    I'd love to see Valentin moved for another starter or a decent reliever. Don't know if any GM will pay that price though.

    If we got Penny for LaRue, Krivsky would be arrested for grand larceny. Valentin murders righties and Ross can hit against lefties. And penny can come in for DWill. Winners all around.

    Except for the bullpen. Need more help there than anywhere. If Penny is out there, we should try for Brazoban as well.

    I actually think it would be a pretty fair trade. Good catchers have a lot more value than you think.
