    Nobody that would be stupid enough to risk their jobs by reporting something like this on a public forum, I'd imagine.

    And, if any of the media types who the 'Z really knew, they'd be rushing to a microphone or a computer to get the scoop.

    Maybe that's why Narron ran Harang out for 135 pitches, getting them ready for the Baker treatment

    But CNNSI did bring up the fact the Reds are dangling Kearns, possibly for Westbrook again...so you wonder what's going on with Kearns in general right now.

    Difference was, Dusty had a bullpen.

    Re: Kearns on the block

    Would people want more than just Willis for EE and Kearns?

    As much as I can't see the Marlins trading both Willis and Cabrera, I could see the Reds making an offer that would be hard to beat for those two.

    I will say that I do not believe this will ever happen. I have been saying it as long as these Marlins/Reds rumors have been on this board.

    BUT, if Bob is willing to pay the jack I could see the Marlins excepting a deal like:

    Kearns, Edwin, Bailey, low level/high ceiling prospect

    for

    Willis and Cabrera

    What other team could offer 2 young ML position players and a #1 pitching prospect like Bailey?

    Just dreaming...but it's fun.

    1. Lopez SS
    2. Dunn LF
    3. Griffey CF
    4. Cabrera 3B
    5. Hatteberg/Aurilia 1B
    6. Phillips 2B
    7. Denorfia RF
    8. Ross/LaRue C

    1. Willis
    2. Harang
    3. Arroyo
    4. Ramirez
    5. Milton

    Mmmmm.... replace Milton and find 2 more bullpen arms and the Central would be ours.

    Re: Kearns on the block

    I have yet to hear any remotely valid reason why the Marlins would give up Dontrelle Willis for anything, anything at this point.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Because the Marlins ownership does not want to pay him 10+ million/year that he is going to want. As well, his value is as high as it will ever be right now. He is THE starter who teams believe could be traded this season.

    Re: Kearns on the block

    I've been checking the team boards on MLB.com and the local televison websites in Baltimore and Miami and have heard nothing else. Let's play devil's advocate for a moment. The deal could have been done. Forget the prospects that might be involved. Willis is going to be traded regardless. So the Marlins get a good and cheap OF in the trade. Tejeda and the Orioles aren't getting along so they trade him and get a good SS and a 1B which they really need. The NL is as weak as it has ever been and will probably ever be. The Reds are still very much in it so I could see them making a run this year.

    That's probably true today moreso than ever as Barry Zito has changed agents and now is a Scott Boras client. That move alone probably raised Willis' stock a little.

    No trade clauses involved?

    (Not that I believe a word of this rumor)
