I'm staring at the TV with the Reds on the recieving end of a 6-0 deficit after two innings versus Washington, all I can say is something need to be done. I make the topic on the Yankees because they're struggling too, and they have no qualms about taking on big bats and big salaries. And face it - every prospect they get is usually trade bait for some type of established veteran. If we could get Hughes, and a couple of negligable young class A prospects - I would do this trade in a heartbeat. Hughes isn't going to go in with the Yankees having so many established guys in the rotation, and they have a win now mentality. Giambi looks to be on the outs, they get Dunn to replace him, and an everyday OF'er and DH in Dunn - and the Reds get salary relief, and another young arm with Bailey to work with for the future.
It's wishful thinking, it's not at all likely to happen, but I think it would be something both sides could consider.
