    Would you trade Jay Bruce for Erik Bedard straight up?

    Yay or nay? I think everyone here knows I would do backflips if WK could pull it off...

    I said yes, but ONLY if Adam Dunn is extended to a LTC... Could the Orioles throw in Bradford or Walker to make me feel better about it?

    The Reds have Bedard last year in the number 2 spot and drop Bronson to the 3 spot we would have made the playoffs. I agree that Bruce is worth a great deal but isn't making the playoffs worth something too? I voted to trade. The playoffs are worth it in my opinion.

    I think Jay Bruce has the potential to be a very special player but I would absolutely trade him straight-up for Erik Bedard.

    The question then becomes how much would you be willing to include with Bruce and I wouldn't go any higher than a third tier type prospect. I certainly wouldn't include any other member of the Reds' big five.

    I wouldnt trade Bruce for anyone, he is going to be an MVP candidate within 4 years.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Re: Would you trade Jay Bruce for Erik Bedard straight up?

    I really don't think a straight-up trade would happen. Potential is great (and Bruce's potential is REALLY great) but he's still a prospect a couple of years from the majors. He could very easily wind up being another can't-miss who misses.

    Also, it seems like McPhail values quantity over quality to some extent. I think he's going to want a few bodies in return for Bedard.

    this whole thread is just to prove how much my fellow redzoners over-value our prospects...

    That's why I just can't see a trade with Bruce going down. The O's have multiple holes to fill, and a deal with Bruce just isn't going to include much more then him. If Bruce is included in the deal, You're probably looking at something like Bruce/Maloney/Janish for Bedard and someone else.

    You might be right. Still, I think the Orioles are more concerned with gathering as much young talent as possible than filling positional holes. The money is there to sign stop-gaps or take on a salary dump to fill a position if necessary.
