    But you're also talking about 3 players (both in performance and salaries) that makes it hard to deal them.

    Wilson is finished as far as I'm concerned, and no one is gonna take on Jr and Milton's contracts until there performance shows otherwise.

    Baseball Prospectus doesn't like Rogowski's outlook, and neither do I. He's 25 and putting up mediocre numbers in his first season of AAA ball. He's never really shown much power in the minors.

    Griffey is not likely to be traded, he makes entirely too much gets hurt too often and is not a very good center fielder. Not many teams are going to want that at 36 years of age. I like Griffey and hope he would think about a shift in position so Dunn could go to first or Griffey would. Love to see what we have in Denofria. To me starting pitching is not the problem relief is what is costing us games. Make a deal so we can start shutting teams down in the late innings.

    Exactly. Do you think Arroyo would be here if he had a choice?

    It seems like something out of Bizarro World, but I agree. The starting pitching isn't Cy Young caliber, but it's been darn good. But this offensive slump and, most importantly, crummy relief pitching, is costing us right now.

    You don't rebuild this team around 36-year old hall of famers that are broken down more than they play.

    With that said, I think the White Sox would be interested in Griffey with the idea of him playing LF and Podesnik shifting to CF. And if I'm the Reds, I would ask for RHP Freddie Garcia in return. The White Sox could easily replace Garcia with Brandon McCarthy in their rotation. Even if the Reds had to pay a portion of Griffey's contract, it would be small considering what Garcia makes. On top of that, you create a starting spot for Chris Denorfia who would upgrade the outfield defensively.

    Griffey for Garcia? It is begging to happen. Improves both clubs. White Sox still have the pitching to go with a potent lineup while the Reds upgrade their rotation, outfield defense and overall speed in the lineup.
    If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.

    NO WAY would Jr. approve a trade. Why would he if the Reds are in it? He might go if the Reds are out of the race. So the title of the article is ridiculous, because if the Reds are "in the hunt" Grif will want to be here for that.

    well, he could feel that the Reds don't have the pitching to actually make it to the playoffs. he wouldn't be the only one.
