    Re: Kearns on the block

    I would like to see the Reds give the Pirates a call. Marte and Oliver Perez are two guys I wouldn't mind seeing in a Reds uniform.

    I'm not sure why the Angels would want to deal Shields either...but, I would see what they would want for him as well.

    As for Hawkins, I'm not a big fan, but considering our bullpen, he even sounds A LITTLE intruiging.

    Re: Kearns on the block

    rah rah ri.

    I'd rather take a practical look at the health of the organization and develop a realistic plan around the assets and liabilities that currently exist. Sure there's an outside chance the Reds can contend for the balance of this season. At what long term cost?

    To me, this team is perfectly poised to really go for the gusto in 2008. The core team is the right age. The 2008 season should be a year that some bad contracts come off the books, or so. There is some promising pitching beginning to creep up the org charts (yeah, I know we've been there before). To move some of that young core for marginal improvements in the really bad area (bullpen, pitching in general) will do neither [contend now, or then]. The ability to contend before 2008 should not be the carrot; It should be a happy coincidence.

    If whatever move they make doesn't dramatically detract from this teams 2-3 year projectable peak window, then sure. Go for it this year.

    I would rather stay away from Pirates pitching. Look what the last two has done for us...

    Far from even considered to be 'good'.

    I love how some of us claim to know that a major trade is about to happen, and some of us claim to know that a trade proposal is definately a made up internet rumor. I wish I had all of your perceptive abilities.

    Perez and Marte have FAR better stuff than either of those two ever had.

    that says it all to me. more retreads coming to the riverfront.

    I saw this line and had the opposite response. What gem is out there needing a change of scenery, not unlike Brandon Phillips or an excess pitcher like Brandon Arroyo. Why the doom and gloom?

    Here's some pitchers not exactly tearing it up and maybe needing a change of scenery.

    Tim Hudson
    Jason Marquis
    Josh Beckett
    Kris Benson (and you know who!)
    Kevin Millwood
    Freddy Garcia

    because that is what I see it as. just exactly what I said. Why not go out and get someone that is actually good? You are not going to find many Brandon Phillips on the waiver wire. It was just a fortunate, for the Reds, mistake by the Indians.

    I don't think that this Reds team is good enough to win anything without actually getting some pitching. Latroy Hawkins isn't going to get it done. Someone like Dontrelle Willis could. There are players to be had, if you believe the news rags. The Reds just have to be willing to give up something to get them. I just have this bad feeling that they are going to trade Kearns or Encarnacion for someone like Mark Redman or Tony Armas.

    You can't wait until July 31 to make a deal either. The first team to really go out and help themselves are going to make the playoffs in the NL.

    Jason Marquis I don't think the Cards are looking to trade anyone to us.
    Josh Beckett - He has 11 wins and I don't think the Red Sox are going to be trading him.
    Kris Benson (and you know who!)I think they're divorced.
    Kevin Millwood
    Freddy Garcia I don't think the W Sox are looking to move him.
    Just my opinion.

    Re: Kearns on the block

    The Reds have just traded KEARNS and LOPEZ to the Nationals! I just heard it on the XM baseball channel.

    Anyone think that guy on the ESPN board had some inkling of what was going on? He got the Kearns and Lopez part right and no one else even had a clue.
