    Trade him for what? nothing that would help much, unless the Reds pay about 90% of the contract, so no salary relief.

    But come on: Dunn's proven time and time again to be great and bounce back.

    Keep Griffey and let him hit the crap out of the ball, we couldn't trade him unless he wanted it anyway.

    I could definitely handle getting rid of Griffey, if it was possible, if he accepted and if we got solid value for it. 3 big IFs. Seeing him go down time and time again just kills me.

    That was a bad deal. We're talking DanO bad. The Reds would have had to pay a huge chunk of Griffey's salary and wouldn't have acquired any pitching.

    Oh, and the Reds have no business thinking about "staying in any hunts" this season. Time to solidify around Enc., Dunn, Harang, and Arroyo; everything else is up for sale.

    You must have been late getting to this post, FCB. 2nd reply, and you already threw Kearns under the bus. Time to show our appreciation for the guy's hard work by trading him? Usually a more LOYAL reward would be a LTC. You live in Philly, you must have Kearns confused with Abreu. Let's railroad one of our best players out of town... I have my shrine of hating Felipe Lopez, and you have your shrine to all things Austin Kearns.

    I'm not sure why you dislike Lopez--he's either produced or tried to produce since he's been with the Reds. I'm not opposed to trading him, but I'd much prefer to have Lopez in my platoon than Kearns, all things being equal.

    Re: To stay in hunt, Reds must trade Griffey

    Chi Sox need a CFer desperately, and they have a speedy CFer in the minors ready to come up. When the Reds don't have a leadoff hitter the offense struggles (look at offense when Freel was hot, and look at it now).

    I would pay some of Griffey's salary to get that speedy CFer (somebody tell me his name) and a solid pitching prospect.

    If you want to realistically deal Junior, you have to eat some of his salary.
