    Would you trade Dunn for prospects?

    The idea behind this is too pile up enough to flip to the D-Rays or Marlins. Do you think this may work more in the Reds favor? They could also trade Freel and Milton for prospects. If the Reds get enough prospect with decent to high ceilings the Marlins or Devil Rays are bound to bite.

    Your thoughts? What prospects could be obtained?

    Absolutely not. Dunn needs to bring some real value in return, not the potential for value.

    He would if the prospects netted Cabrera or Crawford and maybe more.

    As I said, I wouldn't trade him for the potential to pick up equal value. The Reds have "built for the future" far too many years, and I hope the new regime doesn't do the same.

    Well no, you wouldn't acquire several prospects and hope the Marlins bite. It would be more like a 3 or 4-way deal.

    I doubt this would happen since Wayne and BC want to win now. If dunn goes it has to be for a good pitcher. If you can get prospects for milton though I am all for that.

    Only if they were say, Erick Aybar, Howie Kendrick, and Brandon Wood.
    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.

    I don't know the reality of that, but I would jump all over something like that. Then Phillips and maybe EE become tradeable. Their demand, especially EE's, would likely be huge. If you could keep one or two of those and combine the others with some of the Red's prospects you could net Cabrera and maybe even Willis too.

    Yes, depending on the prospects. They need to be at the AA level or higher though.

    Oh and there is no way Dunn would bring you Brandon Wood straight up, much less if it included Erick Aybar and Howie Kendrick.

    Erick Aybar is someone I like though as a target.

    I would agree that it depends on the prospects. and I would hope Aybar isn't one of them, he is seriously overhyped(no power, no patience, lots of errors).

    I guess what I like about him is his glove (he does play great defense despite his errors), he hardly ever strikes out (about once out of 10 at bats), he can steal some bases (but still needs work), and he hits a fair share of doubles. He is a slick fielding SS, so I wouldnt expect much power out of him, and the lack of walks is a little worrisome, but he has speed and puts the ball in play a lot of the time. I dunno, maybe I just like him more than most.

    That was sort of my point. Dunn, as it stands now, probably isn't going to bring the type of return that would be necessary to offset his loss. The offense is just too thin to trade Dunn unless we get contributing players in return. That said, I would certainly shop him to see if that deal is out there.
