    I love Brad Penny, hopefully the Reds can land him. A top three of Penny, Harang, and Arroyo would give us the best rotation in the NL Central.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Pretty sure it would be Dunn. What kind of contract does Penny have?

    I'd love to get Penny but I don't want to trade our best hitter for him.

    Dunn for Penny and Loney would work for me.. considering what offers were thrown out there for Manny.. which involved Billingsley, Kemp, and Broxton..

    Getting Penny and Either or even Loney and move him to a corner OF spot would seem reasonable. Maybe add a young arm or a bullpen guy to get Either would be fine with me.

    His road splits have been brutal the last two years.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    thanks woy

    I'm wary of Penny's injury history, but that's a nicely affordable contract for a guy who, if healthy, is a top 10-15 guy in the league.
