    I think LaRue is the only one who will be gone for sure. LaRue by himself should be enough to pick up an arm especially if we pick up some of LaRue's money. However with 4 2nd baseman you have to believe one of them will be packaged with him. Not sure who it is but will shocked if by the time the game starts Tuesday in Chicago we havent seen a trade.

    I think one of our catchers might be in the mix. Who knows though. I'm hoping we can get a closer. I think that's the key for this team who scores. WE need someone to shut down teams on the back end and we don't have that ala the past two games.
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!

    Well, if Krivsky can get Bronson Arroyo for Willy Mo Pena, the return should be greater for Austin Kearns.

    And if the Twins offered either RHP Scott Baker or LHP Francisco Liriano along with another pitching prospect like RHP Boof Bonser, I can see Krivsky pulling the trigger and have Denorfia as the everyday rightfielder batting seventh in the lineup. Krivsky is high on Denorfia and knows he has nothing to prove back at Louisville.

    The Twins would laugh at the deal. Liriano is the left-handed version of Felix Hernandez.

    He's off the table. The Twins wouldn't trade him for anybody on the Reds roster...In fact, I doubt there are more than 10-15 players in baseball for whom they trade Liriano.

    They have to do something. Otherwise, the trade for Phillips is just plain stupid. TOO MANY 2b. The way the roster stands now, PHillips would be of little or no use to the Reds. It would be like carrying Wily Mo 3 years ago. I also would not trade Freel unless it gets us a SOLID closer, starting 1B, or # 3 starter.

    Good question. BCast wants to win now, so I think Kriv would more likely trade for MLB-ready players rather than prospects.

    And that sure worked out badly.

    It netted us 2 good years of hittinf, and our current #2 starter, who's signed cheaply for 3 years.

    Let's hope Phillips is of such little use to us.

    Because the Reds have crap in the minors and they'll never get good, by just paying pitchers for something they already did.

    Re: Marty and Hal believe a trade is brewing

    I'd love to believe that the Phillips deal presaged one for either Aurillia or Womack, but don't think there is a market for either. Wo knows? Maybe there's someone out there desperate for help at 2B and we can package RA or TW with a catcher or reliever and get a pitching upgrade.

    Unfortunately, since I don't see much of a market for those two and we have such a MI glut, I see Freel as the one having value and being the odd man out. I'm not saying this is terrible, I just hope they can get true value and something usable for him.

    I also look for Larue or Valentine to be dealt before the deadline if not sooner and it wouldn't surprise me to see White or Williams as a throw-in. I look for Hammond to be released soon and possibly replaced by Shackleford.

    I'm coming around to the idea that Milton is a different pitcher than last year. I'm not saying he's an ace, just exhibiting less suckitude than last year. If he keeps it up, the first time someone approaches me with a deal for a solid young starter he's gone - if for nothing else, to rid myself of the financial risk of his contract.

    Kearns might be dealt, but I'm thinking it more than likely will be Junior after seeing his reduced range in CF. If there's a decent market, I'd only hold on to him if he would consider a move to 1b (I think he might be solid there). I think I'd hold on to Austin.

    Dealing KGJ and Milton though would certainly open up enough space to make a run at a #1 in the off season.

    In return for Junior, I'd like a young CFer to help strengthen the OF, a solid young starter and maybe a young reliever.

    All-in-all, by the deadline, I'd like to see them come up with a better solution at 1B, a young CFer (if KGJ is dealt) and at least three soild young pitching prospects including a starter and closer. I wouldn't say no to an all-round young catcher to solidify the future there and, Brandon Phillips aside, I wouldn't mind a top young MI to team with FeLo for the future and get Womack off the roster.
