    Re: Reds interested in Rios

    Why would we trade away one strength in our biggest weakness to overload our outfield even more?

    Unless there is another pending move....

    Re: Reds interested in Rios

    Elliott also said the Reds are interested in Alex Rios. If the Giants are pondering sending Tim Lincecum to the Jays for him, I imagine the Reds would have to counter with Homer Bailey. Bailey, however, is less proven than Lincecum.
    I'm a big fan of Rios, if we truly are going after him does this mean we are unloading on Griffey, Hamilton, or Dunn? Rios has a TON of upside and is only 24 or 25 I believe.


    I'd rather see us get pitching, but if we somehow go Bailey for Rios then trade Dunn/Griff/ or Hamilton for Bedard or another pitcher then I would be even more happy with this move.

    The only way a move like Bailey for Rios would happen is if WK plans on dealing Hammy or another outfielder for a SP.

    How about Hamilton and Votto?

    Re: Reds interested in Rios

    One other interesting thing

    http://mlb.mlb.com/team/player_caree...ayer_id=425567

    Rios is 6'5, could he possibly go to first base?

    Send Bailey + spec to Toronto for Rios
    Hamilton, Votto, etc for Bedard.

    Move Rios, Griff, or Dunn to first.

    Anyone know if Rios has played first base before or how good his outfield defense/arm is?

    Re: Reds interested in Rios

    I would have to think if we traded Bailey for Rios that Bruce would have to be included for Bedard. Bailey, Bruce for Bedard, Rios?

    I'll take it. You think it'd look something like this:

    Rios for Bailey + spect (no clue what the Blue Jays would need, but if they would accept Lincecum for Rios i'd think we'd need to add one average spect)

    Bedard for Bruce, Votto, ??

    If not for the existance of Vernon Wells, Rios would be playing CF in Toronto. As is, he is a very good right fielder. First base should not be an option for him.

    Thanks, Toronto must be solid at drafting outfielders, Vernon Wells is spectacular as well as Rios.

    How is Rios' arm compared to Wells'?

    I would take it as well. Sounds pretty reasonable. But you can't deal Bailey without knowing you are getting Bedard.

    Re: Reds interested in Rios

    Maybe its some type of 3-way thing where
    Jays end up w/ Bailey
    Giants end up w/ Hamilton & Votto & others
    Reds end up w/ Rios & Lincecum

    There better be a lot more coming the Reds way in that proposed trade. Lincecum is not much better than Bailey (if at all; polished, yes, but not better).

    Essentially you would be trading Hamilton, Votto, 3-4 prospects for Alex Rios. That is not a good idea. IMO, this would be much better if it involved Bedard or Haren, but not Lincecum.

    Re: Reds interested in Rios

    I have been a fan of Rios for awhile and he would be an excellent bat to add the RH pop along with BP and EE.
    JH,Dunn,Jr,Votto and eventually Bruce has the scale tipped a little too far to the left.

    They both have good arms.
