    I think you can edit the poll - I guess my "others" vote was the only one that registered. I also said Conine and Dunn.

    I think Conine will for sure be moved, to the Mets.

    I'm hoping Freel is traded somewhere.

    There are not really signs pointing in a particular direction.

    No major moves/trades will be made by the Reds before midnight tonight. And it's not due to the fact that Krivsky is a stupid and inept GM either.

    We do have some commodities that teams are interested in. One of them just left in Lohse. But other then that (and maybe Hatteberg), whatever else we may have, teams aren't offering much, and are trying to "steal" for peanuts (like a Dunn)?

    As I look around MLB, I don't think many teams are making much movement for the very same reasons. We're all out looking for the same thing, and the huge "marquee" players, those that may be available, aren't being snagged up. Maybe it's because teams are being more conservative and frugal in this current market.

    Alot of teams are doing "window shopping"; but Mark Teixeira to the Braves may be the biggest one we see.

    I'm guessing that the Reds have a big possible trade brewing in which they will send Dunn, EE, maybe Dumatrait and perhaps one other to. . . . guessing Minnesota.

    Guessing they are trying to get back Garza from the Twins and perhaps an outfielder or reliever.

    This is sheer speculation based on:

    Twins dumping Castillo opens some salary room for them
    Reds need to decide what to do with Dunn, probably trade
    Twins need a third baseman
    Reds desire for top young pitching
    Guy in minor league forum says Bellhorn standing by to fill a spot with Reds.
    Dumatrait removed from minor league game, yet not called up to Reds (yet).

    I think Conine and Dunn will be dealt.

    Dodgers give the Reds Jonathan Meloan and Andre Ethier for Adam Dunn!

    I think Conine is definitely gone. I would not be surprised if he's the only one dealt today.

    If Hatteberg isn't dealt, Krivsky should be prosecuted for malpractice.

    I like Hatteberg. He's fun to watch hit, but Votto has nothing more to prove in AAA. Putting of starting Votto till next year will just put more pressure on the kid. Trade Hatteberg for ANYTHING and the organization is better off.

    I hear you dfs but don't hold your breath waiting on Hat to be traded. I think Krivsky plans on keeping him around next year.

    that could be said of a number of players. My gut feeling is that those hoping for a flurry of activity are going to be disappointed at the end of the day.

    I understand your logic, but is it necessary to looking at 1st base as a platoon. Might it not be possible to see keeping Hatteberg for the bench and occasional fill-in for Votto? Of course, if something of value can be had for both Hatterberg and Conine, by all means, do it. But I like Hatt on our bench nonetheless.

    Re: Who will be gone by the end of today?

    Votto is 23. He has done well at AAA, but not dominant. Reds may just feel he isn't ready to hit consistently in the major leagues, needs work on defense, and at minimum should finish this year at AAA.

    I think people on the board are rushing things with this guy. September call up (only a few weeks away) is fast enough to give him a taste of the bigs.

    He'll be here soon enough.

    Meantime, maybe trade offers for Hatt aren't compelling. Maybe they do want him next year, at least as a backup. I have no problem with that.
