    Would you...Bailey for Kazmir?

    Would you trade Homer Bailey straight up for Scott Kazmir right now? Interesting question given the Reds brass' history with Kazmir. I don't think I would, given Kazmir's proximity to free agency, and the fact that the Reds are built to contend in 2008/2009/2010 more than this year.

    I need to see Kazmir's contract.

    Off hand, I'd say no. Kazmir's injury last year kind of scares me as being a long term problem or a lingering injury. You add in that Kazmir isn't as cheap as Bailey and that, like you said, they are better built to contend on Homer's time frame, and it's a little easier to pick Homer.

    Nope.

    Bailey's size portends to better long term success.

    Roster churn for the sake of roster churn is never a good thing.
    Hurts the team and all that.

    No. Bailey has too much upside. Kazmir is really good but not worth trading Bailey at this point. I wouldn't mind sending Milton, Belisle, and just about anybody else in that shoddy bullpen to get Kaz. That is a pipe dream but a nice young, talented rotation. Harang, Arroyo, Bailey, Kazmir and who cares!
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    As much as I love Kazmir, I have to say no. Like was mentioned earlier, his injury worries me.

    I'd rather invent a time machine and go back and hold a gun to Obie/Lindner's respective heads and make them draft the kid. Ohhhhh how sweet he would look right now pencilled into our rotation!

    No.

    I would rather the Reds take a chance on their own prospect. I am really starting to have some serious man love for HB.

    You mean draft him like they drafted Sowers?

    How'd that work out?

    No. Homer has the better frame, is cheaper, and will have a better career IMO.

    Homer also has the control problems of Bea Arthur.
