    Potential Buyers and Sellers/Potential Free Agents

    http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?...=.jsp&c_id=mlb

    Sellers:
    The Reds are in the basement in baseball's weakest division, but considering the state of the division race, they could decide to stand pat, unless the Reds do start entertaining offers for some of their more tradeable talent, like first baseman Scott Hatteberg or outfielder Adam Dunn. And we can probably expect the annual round of Ken Griffey Jr. trade rumors to start swirling.
    Free Agents:
    Bobby Abreu, Yankees

    Moises Alou, Mets

    Milton Bradley, Athletics

    Mark Buehrle, White Sox

    Paul Byrd, Indians

    Eric Byrnes, Diamondbacks

    Mike Cameron, Padres

    Luis Castillo, Twins

    Bartolo Colon, Angels

    Francisco Cordero, Brewers

    Adam Dunn, Reds

    Jermaine Dye, White Sox

    David Eckstein, Cardinals

    Scott Eyre, Cubs

    Freddy Garcia, Phillies

    Luis Gonzalez, Dodgers

    Shawn Green, Mets

    Livan Hernandez, Diamondbacks

    Trevor Hoffman, Padres

    Torii Hunter, Twins

    Jason Isringhausen, Cardinals

    Geoff Jenkins, Brewers

    Jason Jennings, Astros

    Andruw Jones, Braves

    Todd Jones, Tigers

    Jason Kendall, Athletics

    Jeff Kent, Dodgers

    Mike Lamb, Astros

    Jon Lieber, Phillies

    Scott Linebrink, Padres

    Paul Lo Duca, Mets

    Mike Lowell, Red Sox

    Joe Nathan, Twins

    Odalis Perez, Royals

    Jorge Posada, Yankees

    Mariano Rivera, Yankees

    *Alex Rodriguez, Yankees

    Ivan Rodriguez, Tigers

    Kenny Rogers, Tigers

    Reggie Sanders, Royals

    Curt Schilling, Red Sox

    Ichiro Suzuki, Mariners

    Mike Sweeney, Royals

    Julian Tavarez, Red Sox

    Omar Vizquel, Giants

    Bob Wickman, Braves

    I certainly hope the Reds are sellers but I could see this front office standing pat and hoping for the best. At the very least they should be shopping guys like Hatteburg and Weathers since they should have some value to playoff contenders and are easily replaceable.

    In regard to the potential free agents, I'm most interested in Scott Linebrink. In my humble opinion he'd be a great fit as a closer and will certainly be more affordable than a premier closer like Joe Nathan. Not only that but brining him in would allow guys like Coffey, Majewski and Bray to assume different roles where they're more likely to succeed.

    I would like to see the Reds get Paul Bryd but I dont have any idea of who we would have to give up for him.

    It never occurred to me that Mr. Hat would be a commodity that would interest other teams. If we can move him, I would do so just so we can get Votto up here and get a look at him.

    I was thinking the exact same thing when I saw his name. But the Indians seem pretty darn solid right now, and wouldn't need anything we could offer them.
    Let's make some noise!
