    As far as Lopez goes....I would rather the Reds give Germano a shot then to give up anything of substance for Lopez.

    the only way i would trade for zito is if he signs a new deal.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    This could be the point that dealing off Kearns and Lopez so hastily could come back to haunt Krivsky. Weren't the Cubs interested in Kearns early on?

    I would think that players see the Reds as a real contender with good management...I understand not wanting to come here with Dan O and Linder but things have changed greatly in less than 1 year. I don't get pitchers not wanting to play with a contender...wild card leader...with less than 60 games left in the season.

    Could be. But I'm not sure Kearns/Lopez were very highly valued when they were dealt.

    I don't think they would be principles in any deal for Zito. Maddux? Perhaps.

    Re: Trade rumor from WLW

    At this point we could throw out several names but to me I would think our biggest partners would be KC, Balt, and Philly to trade with. So Redman, Lidle, Lopez would be my top three possibilities. I just can't sse Krivs giving up that much (Wood, Cueto, and others) to get Zito.

    But OTOH, Zito could be a more likely target to add a LH starter to the rotation

    You might be able to get Maddux in a salary dump. Zito, serious chips, more than the Reds have.

    He has a lot of family in the Cincinnati area. I would say he wouldn't mind it.

    Zito does not have the trade value you all think. He is a free agent and signed up Scott Boras. That means there is zero chance he will sign with his new team until he has tested the market. Bailey would not be required to get Zito.

    Also the As are falling out of the race and Harden has been hurt all year.

    I think Beane is looking to the future...
