Who should the Reds pursue to acquire at the July trading deadline? It is obvious this team plans to make a run for a playoff spot and at the same time stay committed to rebuilding the farm system.
So, who do the Reds go after? Bullpen help is obvious, and another starter might be welcomed. Do you trade Brandon Claussen, Chris Denorfia or Ray Olmedo? Do you acquire a rent a player for the final two months of the season or someone who will be around in 2007?
Give me some names. How about the Pirates LHP Damaso Marte or RHP Roberto Hernandez? Kansas City RHP Elmer Dessens or LHP Jermey Gobble? How about this one....RHP Brett Myers of the Phillies? Word is the Phillies might have to trade him given the backlash in Philadelphia for beating his wife.
So, who do you want to see come onboard the Reds train for the stretch run?
