    Trade Kearns

    If the Reds are going to trade an 'everyday-player' for pitching, Kearns would be my choice. Denorfia would provide better range in RF and, based on scouting reports, his arm isn't anything to sneeze at either.

    I just don't think that the offense would suffer that big of a hit if Kearns was replaced by Deno.

    Kearns is on pace to hit 30 hrs. and his D is solid.

    What caliber of ML-pitching could he fetch, either alone or packaged with someone else?

    I think if you package Kearns and Lopez, you could land yourself a pretty nice return-- a team like the Astros could be very intruiged by those two.

    Re: Trade Kearns

    Kearns, Lopez and a catcher are your trading chips.

    If used wisely, could bring some good returns...

    Re: Trade Kearns

    I would rather trade Lopez than Kearns, but if both need to go and we get a good return, go for it !!!

    Re: Trade Kearns

    If you trade Kearns you have a heavily left handed lineup, particularly from the power perspective.

    I guess EE is a good righty bat, but Kearns plays an important role in the lineup. Denorfia is not a power guy. Votto hits lefty.

    I don't mind trading Kearns in the right deal, but I think it will require some restructuring of the lineup. Another potent righty bat will have to be added someplace.

    As for Lopez, you have to consider a deal if enough pitching comes back.

    If you trade Kearns, then Narron can get Castro the start at the new position of ss/rf, and let him patrol 41% of the field Chuck Norris style.

    What he said.

    We would still have a solid offense without Kearns and Felipe, and they would bring some good things in return.

    Amusingly, I think Aurilia plays that role. Hitting clean up between the lefthanded Griffey and Dunn.

    Re: Trade Kearns

    I don't mind trading Lopez, but not Kearns, I think Dunn could bring you a better return, it's pretty obvious that Jr. is not going anywhere, so he is our left handed power. With Dunn and FeLo gone, that puts Deno out in left, with canon arms at the corners and totally upgrades the defense in left. Phillips moves to short and Freel plays second. That leaves room for Aurilia and Hatteburg to platoon at 1st, and gives Narron a chance to play Aurilia a little more at 2nd and 3rd, to rest Freel and EE. Just my opinion. Then my lineup looks like this -

    Freel 2b
    phillips ss
    Jr. cf
    Kearns rf
    Aurilia 1b / Hatteberg
    EE 3b
    Ross c
    Deno lf (just until he gets some quality ab's)

    After he gets his quality big league cuts, and if he is hitting well, then put him in the 2 hole and shoot Phillips to #3.

    You better get the pitching motherload for Dunn and FeLo because that lineup is going to score a significantly fewer amount of Runs.

    Yup, taking Dunn out of the lineup really makes it a lot weaker. I don't mind trading FeLo, but who plays the open middle position that Phillips doesn't? Not Aurillia, his middle D is bad, Castro shouldn't be an everyday guy. Ray Ray? Bergolla?
