    Somehow I don't think Cincy'd like Manny very much.

    Plus Manny has 10/5 rights and I'm pretty certain he wouldn't agree to a trade to Cincinnati.

    Manny hustle(or lack thereof) would by comparison make Dunn look like Ryan Freel in terms of hustle.

    And Ramirez is truly the worst OF in baseball, and by a large margin. He is much worse than Dunn.

    No offense, klw, but that trade's about as crazy as Manny.

    Manny can be Manny on somebody else's payroll...

    Manny would set home run records at GABP.

    Manny is Dunn, only more exaggerated in every possible way.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    That's what the Red Sox keep hoping. No responsible NL GM would seriously want to trade any value for Manny. He's a great hitter, probably better than he gets credit for being, but he needs to DH or at least stick to that tiny little left field in Fenway.

    Sometimes I think of WMP as an extreme version of Manny: Bigger, stronger, faster, more awkward, goofier, spacier, streakier, and slumpier.

    I would agree about stronger, faster, streakier and slumpier but I think Manny has cornered the market on goofy, spacy and awkward.

    Wow Manny has one ugly range factor.

    Dunn
    WMP
    Manny

    An outfield that could make you cry.

    But it's a terrific lineup for a homerun derby.

    While I proposed this deal, I don't know that I would do it as the team is currently composed. While I think it helps the Reds next year, the age difference makes it potentially bad long term. Also the outfield defense would be atrocious unless Jr went to right and a fantastic CF with Jim Coombsesqe range was added. Plus at this point I am not in the trade Dunn camp but could be persuaded by the right return obviously.
