If there is one guy on this team that should be traded, factoring in all considerations, including but not limited to team strengths, value, future earnings, attitude, and relative value at the moment, it is Austin Kearns.
He has been hitting as well as he ever has at the ML level, and he plays a position that we clearly have an abundance of backup talent (Freel, Denoforia) and minor league help in the pipeline with Votto, Bruce, and eventually Stubbs.
Kearns value is as high as its been in three years. If WMP could fetch Arroyo, imagine what Kearns could potentially fetch. Dan Haren? Jeremy Bonderman? Ted Lilly? True, maybe those three are pipe dreams, but I would be shopping Austin harder than any other player if I were Kriv.
