I've got a feeling that Bedard, Haren or Linecum will be a Red in the next 48 hrs (and I'm hoping that Bruce isn't included if it's one of the first two - no way do I send him for Linecum).
If I'm wrong and WK does not pull the trigger on any of them, how's this for Plan B?
Reds send to Cubs: Hamilton, Cueto & McBeth
Reds receive from Cubs: (LHP) Rich Hill & (RHP) Carlos Marmol
Reds send to Brewers: Weathers, Freel & Majewski
Reds receive from Brewers: (LHP) Dan Capuano & a prospect
Then deal from among : Stanton, Hatteburg, Gonzalez, Coffey or prospects for a RH 4th OF and maybe a young MI or two
I also sign Tomko cheap and make Bailey earn the 5th spot or work in out at DaVille.
