    No thanks to Maddux...prob. have to overpay for a guy who has been getting knocked around of late. If he could be had without giving up major talent then ok.....

    Wonder what Zito will command as far as trade?

    Talking to Zito??? That must mean they have a deal in place, and they are discussing $$$? Hmmm, I doubt that 1 gets done. And I am actually concerned about what we would have to deal too get him!

    I would take a chance on Maddux if its a mid-level prospect that gets it done. But I wouldn't give up much, even if it's a name #5 starter. I'd almost rather have Cory Lidle.

    No offense to our Reds but Maddux has a no trade clause. I don't think he would approve a trade here (I wish he would though). His home is in Vegas. He would probably only approve a trade on the west coast or MAYBE Atlanta.

    If we get either one, I'd also look for Bailey to be brought up and placed into a limited relief role.

    ESPN insider says he (Maddux) would also consider the Mets now.

    I know, but Maddux being my favorite player and the Reds being my favorite team, one can dream I guess. There's always the Xbox to where I can get him on a Reds team

    According to the STLToday.com the Reds are interested in..."Rodrigo Lopez, SP, Orioles He has terrific stuff, but he has been a disastrous performer this season in Baltimore. Perhaps moving to a contender and several top teams are interested, including the Reds would spur better performance down the stretch."

    If the trade is for Zito, the Reds won't be bringing up Bailey - the A's will...next year.

    That reminds me the night I heard Tom Seaver was traded to the Reds. Before that, he was one of my favorite opposing players. I can understand you wanting this to happen. (fingers crossed)
