    Daily Rumblings

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/


    Just a few tidbits that are floating around today...

    All sorts of emails about the Reds recently. Everyone thinks they're due for a trade, and I can't disagree. Unfortunately I've come up empty on any inside rumblings of a deal. But take a look at this depth chart! The team has three catchers and five middle infielders, but lacks a real first baseman and could use some relief help. Something's gotta give. The Jays could probably spare a corner type, and the Twins could have some use for a middle infielder who can hit. The Mets might not mind another second base option.

    I've also heard that some Boston radio stations are tossing around a possible Red Sox proposal for Dontrelle Willis. Apparently their package would start with Jon Lester. I don't know how much foundation this one has, so I'm just tossing it out there. The D-Train has quieted March concerns by allowing just two earned runs in his first thirteen innings. Of course, he doesn't have a win to show for it yet.

    Carlos Pena is still floating around unemployed, and Barry Zito is starting trade rumors with cab drivers. Tom Powers thinks Torii Hunter will be dealt by August if the Twins aren't in contention. I think the team will at least be within spitting distance of the playoffs this summer and Hunter will stay put.

    What would you deal, if anything, for Torii Hunter?
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Nothing. He's not signed beyond this year, so he'd likely leave, and his offense and defense don't begin to match the salary he would command.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    I like Hunter's game, but his salary would be way too much to take on...even if he would sign on past the season.

    If we look to get a CF, I really hope we start with a player like Gathwright who has speed and can cover some ground...while also holding down the leadoff position for years to come.

    As for now, I still think pitching is where we need to look...a top notch start and bullpen help. I really don't want another Williams type...they really do not bolster the staff, we need a game changing starter...if that can't be had, the pen is where we need to look for help the most.

    Wonder if any of them think that on base percentag doesn't matter?
