    From FoxSports.com

    The Reds continue to shop catcher Jason LaRue, and an official with one rival club says the team is willing to pick up part of LaRue's remaining $3.9 million salary this season and $5.2 million salary next season. Good luck: LaRue is batting just .178 in reduced playing time, and most contenders are set at catcher. Rival clubs continue to press the Reds about Triple-A outfielder Chris Denorfia, who boasts a .401 on-base percentage and is 13-for-14 in stlen-base attempts ...

    The Angels are looking for a big HR bat to put with Vlad...would they have any pitching that would justify us sending them Dunn?

    Trading Denorfia would be the single most worstest thing that anyone has ever done in the history of the world and universe.

    Who do the Diamondbacks have behind Johnny Estrada? I hear they are putting Miguel Batista on the block and he would help the Reds quite a bit either in the rotation, or as a setup man / closer.

    I don't know, of the three outfielders I think Dunn is the one you keep. He just has too much more of an upside than the other two. Kearns would be the one I would shop.

    The Diamondbacks have Chris Snyder behind Estrada.

    They also just sent Valverde (who has been awful) to AAA. He should come cheap, although with the way he's been pitching, you'd be taking a big chance on him.

    I don't see it happening. Wayne Krivsky is a huge Denorfia fan. He wants him up here....but as a full time player.




    Somebody's going to go.

    If you thought the Curse of the Bambino was bad in Boston; wait until you see the "Curse of Denorfia" . If we were to get rid of him, we might never sniff the playoffs in my lifetime again.

    Rival teams continue to press about Denorfia translates to rival teams continue to be turned down by Wayne K. That would lead me to believe one of our three starters Kearns, Griffey, and Dunn will soon be traded to open up a spot.

    It might be bad to trade him but the worst ever....eh, I don't know if I would go that far, down the road we might say that but remember all of the previous trades the reds have gotten burnt on.

    How about Dunn to the Angels for RHPs Ervin Santana and Brenden Donnelly?

    The Angels are in love with Carl Crawford's speed, not his stats.

    Well, I just disagree. Kearns would be one of the first I would trade. Denorfia would easily slip into that spot and put up similar numbers. Maybe not quite the power numbers, but that isn't what this team needs. Denorfia is a more disciplined hitter in my opinion. Finding a guy like Dunn who will get you 40+ HRS, 100+ RBIs, and 100+ Runs scored on a yearly basis is very hard to find.
