Maybe its time that we offer them a deal. We are full of #3 starters and we have to demote Lizard to the pen when Milton comes back. So what about this deal:
Reds trade:Brandon Claussen and Ryan Freel
Mets trade:Lastings Milledge(AAA 21yrs OF)
Evan MacClane (AAA 23yrs SP)
we get one of the best outfield prospects in baseball who will replace Griffrey and a good arm for the future in Macclane.While the Mets get a good #3 guy who is young and a utility guy that can play numerous spots.
2006 rotation then is:
Arroyo,Harang,Milton,Lizard,Williams- I think the lizard has earned a spot in the rotation at this point.
