    Slobberknocker trade proposal

    Here is my ideal trade proposal with the White Sox. I feel like this is a trade that could happen, and it benefits both sides. So here goes:

    Reds trade: Adam Dunn and Todd Coffey

    White Sox trade: Scott Podsednik(Cf) Javier Vasquez(SP) and Sean Tracey(RP)

    Why it works for both Sides- Dunn takes over in Lf for the White Sox and gives them a 3-6 lineup of Konerko,Thome,Dye, and Dunn. thats a powerful lineup, and Coffey gives them a replacement in the pen for McCarthy to join the rotation.

    For the Reds they get a #3 starter for almost even $ for Dunn, and can now have Podsednik play Cf, and move Griffey to left. Also Podsednik becomes the leadoff hitter we have been missing, while Tracey assumes Coffey's role in the pen. This allows us to focus on acquiring a RF, SS, Closer and bench help in the offseason FA market. With this trade we could look like this in 07.

    lineup-
    1.Podsednik-cf
    2.Phillips-2b
    3.griffey-lf
    4.EE-3b
    5.FA right fielder DAVID DELUCCI,PRESTON WILSON,etc
    6.ross-c
    7.JULIO LUGO-SS
    8.Hatteberg-1b

    Rotation: 1.Harang 2. Arroyo 3.Vasquez 4.Milton 5.Lohse/Lizard

    I'm going to have to strongly say no.

    Our offense disappears without Dunn. From all accounts, isn't scotty a terrible CF'er? I know he is fast, but from what I've heard, he is awful (haven't seen him much).

    Also, why do you want to pay a #3 starter that type of money? We already have milton at $9, and Vasquez was relatively bad last year too. 4.84 ERA in Chicago.

    Then you are basically trading Coffey for...well, Coffey.

    Hmm...

    Maybe Dunn for Podsednick, McCarthy, Tracey (or another decent reliever), and a prospect

    Too much to ask for? Probably, but I think that would make me happy.

    Podsednik isn't a good leadoff hitter or a good CF.

    I think he's a good leadoff hitter, but crap, the dude isn't even good enough for center field on the White Sox and they had what's-his-name Anderson over there for part of the year.

    Seriously, just because he runs like a demon doesn't mean he's a good defender. I'd never put him in center field.

    He's good at working the count (4 pitches per PA), but his .330 OPB is poison at the top of the lineup. Ryan Freel is better offensively and defensively and is much cheaper.

    I don't think Podsednik has a good enough OBP to bat lead off.

    .330 last year.

    .342 for career.

    Oh wow, that's lower than I would have expected. I was fooled by the scrappy factor.

    But apparently he can chug six beers in under four minutes. I ask you, what's more important to you in a leadoff hitter? I think we have our trade proposal, kids.

    Does he need a beer bong to do it? because, to me, that's what's really important.

    No, this is au naturale.

    But I bet Freel could do it too, come to that. And he's cheaper and comes with a free tiny talking leprauchan.

    Oh man, we're definitely approaching the off-season.

    I'd like see them head butt simpson's style with buckets on their heada, after they'd drank the bucket full of beer. Now that's something I'd pay for.

    That must be why I'm so patriotic.

    yeah, that's the ticket.

    IMO, the Reds get slobberknockered in the balls in this deal.
    I miss Adam Dunn.
