    Hasn't reached the upper minors yet, so I didn't list him.

    Yeah but chances are he'll be with the big league team by the end of the year. I think he has to be considered when evaluating the franchise.

    Maybe, but I just haven't been listing anyone below AA.

    They might leave Braun at 3B with the idea that LaPorta will be along to play LF late in 2008 or in 2009, but I doubt LaPorta's in the opening day plans.

    I wonder if Hart could play CF? He is pretty lanky but he does have good speed.

    Here's a radical suggestion: Trade Prince Fielder for pitching. They could probably put Braun at 1st and not miss too much defensively. Prince could fetch quite a haul since he's still cheap. Maybe to the Yankees for Hughes. If they added a frontline pitcher, it would put them at the head of the class in the NL Central.

    I think they could get a LOT more than just Hughes for Fielder. How many 23 year old players have hit 50 HRs in a season?

    Possibly. I don't know if they could get more than 1 front line pitcher but they could get quite a haul for him.

    Thats actually thinking I like. Prince scares me long terms as a 1B. If a NYY want to give Hughes and some other pitchers/prospects, I'd be all over that. Yes he's a huge chunk of offense, but you win with pitching and if you can turn 50 HRs into 30 wins worth of pitchers, you gotta do that.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I'm wondering if there's a market for Bill Hall. I'll bet there is because he's got tools.

    I would think so. He's pretty versatile, has speed and power and would be perfect for some American League team so he wouldn't have to face the Reds anymore. Of course the caveat for the team acquiring him is that he wouldn't be facing the Reds anymore.

    Maybe to the Twins for Scott Baker and something. The Mets might have some interest in him as a 2B.

    I thought about that. Maybe Chad Cordero for Hall would do the trick and JimBo could stick Hall at SS.
