    I often wonder this. The national press doesn't seem to give our guys any amount of credit. I think there is a considerable upside to Austin Kearns, not the least of it his growing leadership on the team. I've noticed in the past month or so, him speaking up more in a "we" voice in interviews.

    I'm not adverse to losing Kearns but the return has to be pretty decent, IMO.

    If it's that much of a blockbuster this might make a little sense. Not going to happen though.


    I think it would have to be a crap load of of cash.

    I haven't looked at Jaret Wright's numbers this year. How's he doing?

    Re: Kearns on the block

    I've been saying for weeks this lineup would be fine without Kearns and even FeLo. if we coudl get something good, I wouldn't mind trading him.

    That would make sense for the Marlins and Angels, I believe. It'd have to be Edwin going to the Marlins, Dunn going to LAA, and us getting back Cabrera from thh Fish and Santana from the Angels. With maybe a prospect from us and the Angels also going to FLA.

    So, three team trade:

    Reds trade: Dunn and Edwn. Reds get M. Cabrera and E. Santana
    Marlins trade: M. Cabrera. Marlins get E. Encarnacion, prospect from LAA, prospect from CIN.
    Angels trade E. Santana. Angels get A. Dunn.

    Makes sense. I'd have to seriously consider that trade if I were the Reds. Cabrera and Dunn's contracts would pretty much be the same over the next 5-6 years with Cabrera being a better defender, a RH bat, and a better hitter for AVG. E. Santana would be a great addition to the rotation for this year and would start with Arroyo, Harang, and maybe Bailey in 2007, with us only needing 1 LHSP between Claussen (if healthy) or Milton (if healthy) to serve as the 5th man.

    Interesting.

    In May, Marty said there was a rumor running wild about a Edwin for D-Train trade.

    The Marlins must have alot of interest in Edwin if they are going after him again.

    Re: Kearns on the block

    Another thing to think about. The Reds wanted to trade Kearns to the Royals for Greinke last season but the Royals said no. Would you do that trade now?

    He started out poorly and has had a couple of dang good games recently. But I still wouldn't trust him. He's inconsistent and injury-prone.

    There's not a Yankees pitcher I'd take whom they'd be willing to give up(Mussina, Wang). A-Rod's contract is untouchable; he has a no-trade clause.

    I like the Santana trade ok -- I think he has a lot of potential -- but still for me there's no way I'd get rid of Dunn, not before free agency. He's the franchise player; you build your team around him, not the other way around.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I am not sure if it is true but if it is an A-Rod type deal, it would have to involve Griffey Jr. Could this be why he did not start and ONLY pinch hit on Sunday?
    (They did not want to risk him getting hurt before a deal was made.)

    Yes, it's probably this one:

    White Sox Pursuing Jason Schmidt?
    Of couple of ESPN columnists seem to have independently arrived at the same trade rumor in their blogs in recent days. Buster Olney's source is a "talent evaluator" while Jayson Stark got word from "an executive who has heard this talk."

    According to Olney and Stark, the White Sox would trade Brandon McCarthy and Brian Anderson to the Giants for Jason Schmidt. The Sox would then acquire a center fielder in a separate trade.

    Gotta say that if you trade Kearns it should only be for an Arroyo type deal--a good, young pitcher with a manageable contract who could be in the rotation for several years. I could see letting Griff go b/c his and Johnson's contracts and years before retirement are probably about the same.

    The Reds could have gotten Freddy Garcia a couple years back for Aaron Boone but Leather Pants was too much of a jerk. Think about that rotation for the Reds.
