    Re: Kearns on the block

    The thing that bothers me about dealing Kearns is the defense factor. He is our only above average defender in the OF and our pitchers need all he help we can get. Denorfia is a good defensive outfielder but not at the caliber of Kearns. He is our only potential gold glover... atleast in the OF (BP)

    As much as I hate to ear crow (I have been a staunch supporter of Dunn and that it would be rediculous deal a franchise cornerstone of his caliber. He is a once in a decade guy but...) dealing him really makes more sense for the team. He is a liablity in left, he really needs to move to 1B. Him and Griffey in the same OF just isn't good. Hell I'd be alright with Griffey to 1b too but in reality this type of move wont happen untill Spring Training. I love Chris Denorfia and really want to see him get a significant amount of playing time, but he'd be the ideal to deal. I think this team has good chemistry and dealing Kearnsy or Dunn will put a serere ripple in that. I think Freel is too important of a super sub to deal is well.

    Its a tough decison Kriv is going to have to make because we clearly still need some help and to get that we are gonna have to deal players of value... should be interesting to see what unfolds.

    I haven't heard it, but who could the reds dangle that would be bigger than an A-Rod deal? Weird.

    Not too hard to believe. I've heard rumor of a possible deal involving EdE and Cabrera. I don't know who else was involved, but I don't think Willis was included in that rumor.

    It'd have to include Griffey and Dunn IMO.

    Heard nothing of it and honestly can't see anyone in the game that is available that would be on this level.

    Maybe a package deal from the Reds to whatever other team...it would be an "EXTREME MAKEOVER" type deal for both teams....that is the only way I could see those sort of words being used.

    Griffey

    the rumor i read was the White Sox trading Anderson & McCarty to the Giants for Jason Schmidt. Then they would need a CF and still have interest in Griffey ( amongst 1-2 others )

    p.s.

    I agree with the trade Dunn ( not Kearns ) opinion

    Dunn for Ervin Santana would be a good trade. The Reds need to look at 2006 but also 2007+

    The Unit is over 40 years old and ready to hang it up, no thank you to that deal.

    I'd do Jr. for Randy Johnson. Don't know if they would, and don't care much.

    I wouldn't do it if it was Jr. and Kearns.

    The Unit's old and getting older fast.

    Thats exactly the deal we dont need to make, sac a potential large part of our future in Kearns for a half a season rental.

    Cabrerra would make sense, he a significant improvement in the field over EE and Reds have always been high on him, we should have signed him in the international market in the first place
    then again it doesnt make sense because it does nothing to address pitching unless we are getting a reliever in the deal. Borowski ne one?

    Re: Kearns on the block

    How about this?

    Dunn
    Jr.
    Lopez

    for Jaret Wright, cash and A-Rod.

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