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.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'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.
