    Tori Hunter Mentioned With The Reds

    From mlbtraderumors.com:

    ...Hunter has seemingly been connected to half the teams in baseball; you can see all posts involving him here. Today Gleeman added another club to the mix: the Reds. Gleeman's source talks to Dusty Baker, who has suggested the Reds might be interested. That'd create a definite outfielder surplus in Cincy.

    Yes. Torii was spelled incorrectly. :

    It is a far cry from Dusty being interested to Torii Hunter going to the Reds

    Re: Tori Hunter to the Reds

    I just read this as well. I don't know how much hot air this is but this would be a huge pick up. Can you imagine how productive he would be in a ballpark like ours? Plus his defense is obviously superb, Dunn and Griffey's lack of mobility will not be as bad with Hunter in Center. The talk has been pitching but if the Reds sign Hunter we can easily afford to trade Hamilton and even maybe Griffey? Hunter averages around 26 bombs playing in the AL. A stay in Cincy could easily push that to 30. He also will hit around 280 and contribute 25 bags a year. He rarely hits 100RBIs but I think that will be much easier to obtain in our offense. I think this would be a huge sign.

    Re: Tori Hunter Mentioned With The Reds

    I just read that Hunter is looking for a 5 year deal for 75 million at 15 million a year. I believe the Reds have about 20 million to spend this off-season.It would mean at the very least someone would have to be traded, and I can't see the Twins taking Griffey as a rental for 2 years. It could happen, though. We are already looking to give Dunn that sort of deal; I think I would rather give that sort of money to a starting pitcher we receive in a trade. I would like Torii Hunter as much as anyone; I just think the price will be too high.

    Say it ain't so. This would be a horrible move. I don't kknow why the Reds would have any intrest in him.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Exactly.

    If Griffey could be moved, then we could talk. If both Griffey and Dunn stay though, I'd rather go with a younger and cheaper Hamilton in CF.

    If Griffey could be moved then we could talk about Jay Bruce.

    15 million for Torii Hunter? Good lord, I'd rather stick a fork in my eye.

    Sounds like exactly what I'd expect from Dusty. He's a veterans guy. Outfield next year of Hunter, Griffey, maybe Dunn. Bruce sits at AAA, Hamilton goes elsewhere.
