I'd hate for the Reds to deal Junior.. but a move to Boston might get him a ring. A line-up of Ortiz, Ramirez, Drew, Junior.. yikes!There is a potential deal to be made here, but the price could be high.
The Reds. Sure, Ken Griffey Jr. would look nice in that No. 5 hole, but he is also signed for next year ($12.5 million) and has had lots of injury problems. Still, Cincinnati is always looking to move money and might have some interest in the cost-controlled Coco Crisp [stats], as well as prospects.
The Reds also have bullpen help to move in David Weathers, but canít the Sox do better?
I take Coco Crisp, Kason Gabbard, Wily Mo Pena, and Kyle Jackson for Ken Griffey Jr. and David Weathers
