From ESPN the insider.
Interesting...... yeah it makes some sense, come to think of it. You deal Austin and you have a gazillion players to replace him with @ AAA some of which could bring as much to the table This year as Austin can. You could then play Freel, Denorfia, Mc Cracken etc. in the OF.Pitching a trade?
Apr 10 - Even though their outfield logjam is settled, the Reds are still shopping Austin Kearns to see if he can bring back a decent starting pitcher in a trade, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Here's another thought, Griffey said that the natural progression would be CF to RF to LF to 1st Base. How about Jr. to RF and Freel/ McCracken/Sanchez to CF (for this season) that might make the overall defense better. This would make some sense as to why we dealt for Phillips.
Just a note here, I'm not trying to come up with a plan, I am merely trying to figure out what the FO may be thinking. I also happen to think Larue might be headed somewhere too. Maybe both to the Dodgers? Things that make ya go hmmm.
