    Oh, man, there's no way that's true (unless the Kriv got FLA and BAL's GMs absolutely hammered last night and took photos of them cavorting with strippers, or something).

    Most people on the ESPN boards are about as reliable as the Reds.com boards. I wouldn't believe anything you read there.

    That is unbelievably ridiculous. Why not just throw in A-Rod, and Santana while you're at it. Ah what the hell? Let's throw in Liriano while we're at it.

    You add Liriano to the deal, and I'd make it.

    Hatteberg was listed as part of the deal. They must be doing it to clear a spot so that Aurila can be the full time 1st Baseman.

    I really doubt it. Wayne is under orders to improve the team immediately. All his moves have been to win now. I bet he'd trade Homer for an ace pitcher without even thinking twice.

    The farm system is so bare that it's going to take several years of drafting to stock it up anyhow. If Cast is willing to pay for Willis or another ace pitcher now, the Reds will make the move it if only costs Homer and some spare parts.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Heck yes, I would do it. Although I doubt it happens.

    I'm fairly certain Krivsky would do Kearns for Westbrook and Mota, but I think that deal has an even higher chance of making the Reds look foolish in the future than Arroyo for Pena.

    I'm not sure that I would do it. I'd give the bullpen without White and Hammond and with Guardado and Standridge two more weeks to stabilize before I went grabbing for Guillermo Mota, who is in the same category as Eddie (formerly dominant, overpaid) with even worse stats in 2006.

    In the three way trade theres no way the marlins give up willis and only get kearns back. I think something like marlins get kearns, bailey and bedard from O's , O's get lopez, hatteberg and larue and reds get tejada and willis. Not sure if even that would work but i think its a little closer to reality.
