    Maybe so, one of the Dodgers, Angels, Giants or maybe even the Mariners or Pads. Then the New York teams. Then maybe the Cubs/Cards/Dbacks. 1) Location + cash, 2) simply cash and then 3) The other dozen teams like the Reds can think about joining the fun.

    Teams like the Reds are the fourth or fifth rung down on that totem pole, that's a definite.

    He'll get one of the west coast teams to throw out a few arms and legs, probably bidding against themselves in the process

    Reds trade Claussen and Majeski to the Giants for RHP Schimdt.

    Why give up that much for Schmidt? Surely just Majewski would be enough.

    Which means Wayne K. probably has every intention of packaging a reliever or two to acquire a starter. And if the Reds acquire a fifth starter, where does that put Claussen?

    I'm smelling Wayne K's cooking here and just waiting for the main course to be served.

    Re: I'm expecting something bigger than Kyle Lohse

    Schmidt is the premiere starter available, if actually traded and there are teams with more leverage who could use him more than the Reds. If the Reds acquire Schmidt it would look more like Bruce(A-Prospect), Cueto(B-Prospect) and a C-Prospect. The Giants have no need of Claussen and Majewski.

    Re: I'm expecting something bigger than Kyle Lohse

    agreed. No way do they do Schmidt for Claussen and Majewski. I would throw Votto in to that deal, but there is still no way that would be enough.
    Go BLUE!!!
