    Would you trade Dunn for Lidge?

    I think it is obvious that the Reds stand a good chance to see Adam Dunn walk at the end of the season. The Astros are in need of offensive help and the Reds are in need of bullpen help.

    This would also make the Reds a better defensive team because Hamilton could play everyday in left.

    Any thoughts?

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Throw in one Roy Oswalt and then I may start liking the way this sounds.

    Lidge has not been the same since the Cards ended his streak and the 'Stros season two years ago. For 'Stro fans, and my neighor is a HUGE one, he went from the unhittable favorite son to the "Oh NO, don't bring him in!!!"

    I watched him come in last year a number of times vs contenders/winning teams and he did not get the job done then either.

    Yes, the guys in the booth are saying he is "working his way back to being the closer" but I personally would not make that move. He showed me too many "deer in the headlights" looks to put $$$ and faith in him.

    Neither do I subscibe to the "maybe a change of scenery will do him good".

    Please! It's a good chance the Reds will see Dunn walk? Dunn can't walk unless we let him - his option, frankly, will look pretty affordable at year's end. And why would we want Lidge?

    That was a bad one. If they still had Hirsh I would talk to them.

    Not straight up. No way. For all of Dunn's faults, he still is a valuable offensive weapon, he's got to bring more than that. I wouldn't mind if was Lidge was included in the deal, but there would have to be more coming the Reds way than just Lidge.

    I wouldn't trade Adam Dunn straight up for pre-2006 Lidge. That's craziness!

    i would make the trade if i got a couple good prospects along with lidge. I personally wouldn't extend dunn at the end of the year, i would rather have a guy that can hit around 300, strikeout less, and just be a consistent hitter.
