Is replacing Dunn with Cabrera a palatable move?
Is replacing Dunn with Cabrera a palatable move?
Let us all remember one thing. Bailey was not drafted by Mr. K. so it might be possible that he would trade him. Danny O's players have been traded at will in most of the recent activities of this club.

I agree. I would prefer Garcia of the three, and Garland over Vazquez as well. Another buddy of mine I recently talked with who's near Chicago said that there is still interest in Griffey as far as he can tell from a fan's perspective and reading White Sox media and, contingent on the Sox getting Schmidt, they would be likely moving one of their starters besides Buerhle and Contreras to get a CF back. Now it could be a lot of people other than Griffey but Kenny Williams seems to have a real like for Griffey.....and that's great news for Reds fans.Originally Posted by Falls City Beer
He probably heard the same thing on the radio that I heard yesterday: Jeff Rimer was guess hosting with Kirk Herbstreit yesterday afternoon. They were talking about Griffey and Rimer asked Herbie if he'd still like the Reds even if they traded Griffey. Rimer said he had a friend "in the know" who said the Reds were close to a huge move that would change the team down there (or some wording to that effect). Of course, Herbie ignored that part of it and said he didn't care, he'd still like the Reds and off they went on a different subject.Originally Posted by Javy Pornstache
This was on 1460 the Fan in Columbus. Rimer is a hockey broadcaster who has done other sports over the years. He's a veteran with a lot of contacts and doesn't throw stuff around without reason.
I'd say it's almost a push -- Cabrera keeps getting better, though. The thought of him hitting in front of Ken Griffey Jr. is almost frightening. Personally, I take Cabrera 10 days out of 10.Originally Posted by LoganBuck

I would do that deal in a SECOND. That would be the best trade the Reds have made since...Joe Morgan?Originally Posted by Red Leader
IMO, Cabrera = Dunn's production, plus he's 3.5 years younger. So essentially, its like trading EdE for Santana. As much as I'd rather trade Kearns than Dunn or EdE, where do I sign up for this deal?
That said, trading Kearns for a pitcher is exactly what I'd be looking to do if I were Kriv. Kudos to him for doing it (hopefully).
In the next few weeks the franchise is going to make some dramatic changes. That's kind of cool and frightening at the same time.
Absolutely.Originally Posted by LoganBuck

If I can swap out Dunn and EdE for Cabrera, Santana, and add Denorfia to the lineup I would be very happy.
If the other moves where he got rid of players from the previous regime weren't simply because the players didn't fit the team I would possibly agree, but a good GM doesn't trade off a player with the ability and potential Bailey posesses no matter who got them. Homer isn't going anywhere.Originally Posted by alexad

Here is the interesting thing about that....Originally Posted by osuceltic
If you remember on Friday night, when we went up 9-0 Griffey was taken out in the 3rd inning inning. Then Sunday he didn't play at all. Maybe a deal is close to going down, so we are trying to make sure he doesn't get hurt.

The only move they've made I don't like is the Jerry Narron extension...I really wanted to see Lou next year.
Keep in mind Junior has to right to refuse any trade.Originally Posted by reds44
IIRC, Garcia's numbers were ballooning at the time the trade for Boone was being proposed, to the point that teams were afraid to touch the guy.Originally Posted by Handofdeath

Exellent point, but do you really think he'd refuse a trade to the Chi-Sox if he has a shot at a ring and can help the Reds too?Originally Posted by Reds Fanatic
