    They're fighting for first place in the West. Why on earth would they trade their ace at this point in time?

    Thoughts?
    Besides what others have mentioned -- if Counsell becomes a question, Arizona already has answers on hand -- what you're basically proposing is a variation on the old fantasy-league "but it's a 5-for-1!!!" when someone's trying to trade a collection of Just Guys for your star. Now, Lopez isn't filler, but the rest of those guys? You could throw in another ten just like them and it's not going to get the Snakes to turn loose of Webb.

    You have the right type of target in Webb, but the wrong timing. Webb is signed to a favorable deal with his current team. Outside of a mega-market team with an excess of pitchers (yes, I'm pointing at you, Bronson) you aren't going to pry one of those guys away without gutting your team and farms system. The guy to get on the cheap is a 2nd or 3rd year arbitration eligible who has not quite lived up to expectations, but who has the stuff to translate into a plus pitcher. Think Ben Sheets winter of '04.

    Taken in to account our BP,Valverde would be a good fit.

    I'm pretty sure I would send Dunn to the D'Backs for Webb, he's that good. But no way would FeLo be able to get Webb. Like lollipopcurve said, Drew is the future at SS for them.

    Re: Random Trade Thought w/ Arizona

    I wouldn't be so sure that Josh Byrnes would not trade away Brandon Webb for Adam Dunn. You might be right. I don't know.

    I agree that the premise of this thread is incorrect. The minute that Counsell stops producing at shortstop, Stephen Drew comes to the majors an contends for rookie of the year honors.
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    Young, Quentin, Gonzalez, Jackson and Upton say that would not be a good idea.

    Re: Random Trade Thought w/ Arizona

    Why would you trade Felipe Lopez for anyone like Brandon Webb???

    Maybe for a guy like Oswalt or Zito....But Lopez is an impact player at a premier position (SS). There isn't very many A-Rods, Jeters, Nomars, or Tejadas around so I would prefer to keep him....

    I'd want Chris Young.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    I guess Young has some time on his hands to evaluate fantasy baseball trades since he's not playing baseball.

    Could have had him in a Grif deal last year, but for some unknown reason we said no.
