    Bailey for Rios being discussed?

    per mlbtraderumors:

    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 have always liked Rios too, but to trade a young starter when we NEED starters doesnt make sense,, offer Hamilton straight up for him!

    Alex Rios is a stud. Bailey is a POTENTIAL stud.

    With one you know what you are getting - offensive production.

    With the other you hope what you might get down the road - Ace pitcher.

    I would do it and then worry about trading away outfield parts to get pitching later. Rios is that good.

    Love rumors that don't make sense.

    Unless you're going to trade Bruce for a young starter.

    I doubt Toronto would prefer Bailey over Lincecum. It will probably take another prospect in addition to Bailey to trump the Giants offer.

    Maybe Rios can play RCF next year.

    I think the Jays wanted to make the deal, but it was the Giants who balked. So who Toronto prefers wouldn't necessarily enter into it as the Giants have walked away from the table.

    With that said, another prospect probably wouldn't be needed depending on how they value Bailey.

    Why would this team trade pitching for OF help? That isn't exactly filling our needs

    If you can trade Bruce and change for Bedard and then flip Bailey for Rios, I think you've done a service to the team.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    RMR, as much as I like Bruce (or, really, the thought of Bruce), I completely agree.

    Yeah, the Reds don't need a CF and Homer is just shedding his Jim Maloney shell right?

    Yeah, and I firmly believe that Bruce is as close to untouchable as there is.

    But turning Bruce and Bailey into Bedard and Rios - thats straight up potential for sure fire above average production. Not to mention Bedard is dominant lefty and Rios is righty on a left handed heavy offensive team.

    Agree totally... but I don't think one move should be made without the other.
    When all is said and done more is said than done.
