    Hal McCoy reports that Krivsky is ready to sell

    Tim Lewis had Hal McCoy on his show tonight (or last night I guess), and Hal had this to say.

    "I have been told by several inside people with other teams that Krivsky has let it be known that the Reds are ready to start dumping some big salaries."

    So take that for what it's worth. It's nice to Wayne is trying to sell some parts instead of thinking the Reds are actually close to competing. Hal also said that the Yankees aren't the only team showing interest in Hatteberg.

    The Reds were one game under .500 in April, so in the last 2 months they've been horrible. It's about time Krivsky figured this out. Of course, selling just to be selling is pointless. It only matters if he can get something worthwhile back.

    Hopefully he's selling with plans to get some good value in return, rather than just a big salary dump. I have little faith in Krivsky effectively managing a rebuilding process at this point.

    I do think some teams will be buying once it gets closer to the trade deadline. No need to rush things yet (aside from parting ways with the trash like Narron/Castro, those moves should have been done over a month ago)

    If we traded Dunn and brought up Bruce he would have basically jumped from high A to the Majors. Thats a heck of a jump. I am fine waiting on Bruce to finish this year up at AA and see how he does.

    As for trading Hatteberg and bringing up Votto, I think its the right time. I am a big fan of Hatteberg, I think he does a lot of good at the plate. However if we can get something good for him, I am all for letting him go.

    On the MLB roster I feel these players are untouchable: Phillips, EE, Hamilton, Harang, and Bailey. If we get a good offer that will make this team better for the 2009/2010 run then I'd sell anyone else. But I wouldn't trade them for the sake of trading.

    Why keep Griffey? I don't understand that one at all from a Reds standpoint.

    Dump everyone except Bailey, Harang, Hamilton, Phillips and Encarnacion. Trade for pitching, speed and defense.

    Why? This is a small ballpark perfect for power hitters. Why not try to get a right handed power hitter to compliment Dunn and Griffey?

    I wouldn't call him a power hitter. Maybe a few years down the road he will be but not right now

    I hate to say it because of the year he's saving but Weathers would make a great trading chip. If you look at his numbers he's really having a terrific year. He'd make a great right handed set up guy for any contender who doesn't already have a great set up guy.

    Has putting a softball team out there worked? Has having a power hitting line up worked? Small ball park or not the Reds need to get some speed and some guys who can manufacture some runs. Do you really want to go through another season of the same type team? I dont trade Dunn for some pitching or speed and trade Griffey for his own sake.
