    Reggie Sanders....

    Kansas City basically has one good reliever (Riske) and a good pitcher off surgery who has potential to return to his former self (Dotel).... other than that, they are empty in the BP. Joel Peralta did pretty good, and has done decent in the past so you could argue that he needs to be mentioned.

    Also, Joey Gathright was optioned to Triple A because they couldn't find anyone to take on Sanders. Sanders is platooning with Emil Brown (who is unhappy about it).


    Lets send them Mike Stanton or Rheal Cormier, and prospect who is nothing special (can't really think of any names right now, but nothing major)

    Wonder if they would bite on it? We could use another OFer, and Sanders seems to put up good numbers every year, although you can't count on him for many games. If Griffey/Freel was to get hurt we would desperately need another OF.

    The only way the Royals would trade for Cormier/Stanton would be if they were in a playoff race. Seeing as that they will be no where near that, there's no way a deal like that would be made.

    I don't even think it would take that much if we ate most of the contract.

    They would save money by doing the deal, and add some sort of living & breathing being (debatable) in Cormier/Stanton for Sanders.

    It would be trading an excess for something you lack. I think at this point the Royals just want to win more games so they aren't a complete laughing stock. Explains the trades for LaRue & Perez, signing of Gruz, Sanders, Meche, and Dotel.

    I think trading Stanton/Cormier actually helps us out.

    Teams like that usually blow their load in the offseason. If they do that deal, it's not now, it's a salary dump closer to the deadline. Realistically, how many wins do Cormier or Stanton add to the Royals. If they're to be traded it will be to a contender/semi-contender.

    I doubt KC wants our old junk, but they would definatly be willing to part with Sanders or Brown if we paid most if not all of their salary.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    We could always throw an OK prospect at them, I was just looking for a way to get rid of Stanton too.

    Honestly, I rather give Hamilton the chance to start. If he struggles then I make a deal. I don't want Reggie as my 4th outfielder over Hamilton, and there's no way he'd be happy as the fifth outfielder.

    I'd give them Cormier and and a ML reliever for him.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Lack of Denorfia, offense in general.

    Re: Reggie Sanders....

    basically what I was thinking... right now we have 3 starting OFers, and a potential starter (Hamilton)

    of our 3 starting OFers, one has proved to be durable

    It's a good start. Reggie Sanders just isn't the right piece. He's going to go be a veteran presence on a team that's missing a piece or two here or there. He'll be a RH bat off the bench, not a 3-4 day a week starter by the end of the year. I don't think it's a move the Reds make now or at the break, there's little benefit assuming the injured come back sooner rather than later.

    Griffey always has the potential to miss months with various injuries, and Freel also has many a nagging ache or pain. Believe me, he could very possibly be starting 3-4 times a week, which, with our OF depth a tad on the low side as of now, wouldn't be our worst option (remember, Wayne tried to get Jason Ellison ).

    That's what I mean. I don't see Sanders filling that role on any team this year. It's just my opinion, but I see him as a bit player by mid summer on a contender somewhere. That's why I don't think he's a good fit for the Reds. They need someone a little younger (more durable).
