    Speculation: Aurilia to Pads?

    I labeled this as speculation because it's not really even a rumor at this juncture.

    Word on the street [or is it the internet? I can't recall] is that the Padres are interested in a veteran third baseman and might be interested in someone like Aurilia. The talk mentioned AA catching prospect George Kottaras as the 'bait' they'd be willing to deal in such a trade. [Note this is not a rumor, just speculation on potential trading partners and the parts being available based on this writers opinions.]

    Does anyone here believe Rich could even be shopped based on Narron's man love for him?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    That would be a deal you would have to make. Kottaras is a stud and it would get Edwin more at bats. I can't wait for the day that Rich is no longer our cleanup hitter.

    Souns like they need the guy they had last year. Mr. Randa

    I like the idea of moving aurrilla for one of their relievers alot more. Like linebrink, of course not sure they would be interested in doing any deal like that.

    I was just looking at that the other day. The good thing is the Reds have a young kid to man the position and don't lose much by sending the veteran player over to San Diego to play 3rd. The vet should provide the Padres with a good righthanded bat and decent defense at 3rd.

    I'm thinking if we offered, we might able to get Travis Chick and Justin Germano for our veteran 3rd baseman. They're both highly regarded prospects in the San Diego system. Should be worth a veteran corner infielder.

    But, I might be wrong about that.

    Well, Joe Randa = Germano and Eddie Guardado... Will Kevin Towers buy in to another overachieving Reds veteran 3B?
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Kottaras for Aurilia? Sign me up.

    Kottaras and Votto on the same team? Are the Reds cornering the Market on Canadiens?

    I'll bet we could even get Germano and Eddie Guardado.

    PLEASE DO THIS!!!!!

    Thankfully Narron isn't the GM. Hopefully WK has brains (which he has proved so far). It would make my year if this happened. I don't care who we get back.
