    Anyone See This? (D-Train)

    http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/5488220

    Interesting this could be the pitcher we need!!! What should we offer? Wayne could already be on top of this!

    I would love to have Dontrelle Willis, but I don't think we have enough to offer back.

    It is a very nice dream, but a brutal reality. It will not happen, not here, not us.
    Sure I can pull it off on MVP, but I don't think we can get Willis for Milton, Williams and Womack in the real world.

    They would want Bailey, Votto and EE just for starters, probably even more.

    There is likely nothing the Reds could offer the Marlins that would be competitive with other offers they'll field for Willis.

    Someone will overpay badly for him, and they'll overpay with what the Marlins want: young, highly-projectible talent. The Reds have virtually none of that at the high minor league level or even at the major league level. The one commodity that might secure Willis in a trade, Adam Dunn, is too expensive for Florida to take on in salary.

    Griffey, understandably, would not agree to such a trade. If we waives his 10/5 rights it will only be to a true contender.

    Griffey and D-Train have around the same salary which is interesting which is why i thought of him. I know its a dream but if someones desprate it could happen

    Adding Griffey to the Marlins would double their payroll.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Marlins wouldn't want him, and Junior wouldn't go.

    Edwin Encarnacion
    Ryan Freel

    And probably a good minor league pitcher. It would take a deal like that.

    If we offered Freel/Encarnacion and a minor league pitcher, the Marlins would laugh thier fool heads off at Krivsky.

    Yeah, that would push their payroll to over $20M. No way can they afford that.
