I think we are going to see a move after the all-star break. I feel that Krivsky will not give up too early and he will come out of the gate hard and fast. I'm willing to bet the only hold up right now is Claussen's DL stint. If I'm a betting man I think this is the deal that's going to go down:
Reds trade: Brandon Claussen, Ty Pelland, Chris Denorfia
Royals trade: Mark Redman and Elmer Dessens with no cash involved.
Redman fills the 5th spot, and Elmer shores up middle relief. Thoughts?
