    Re: Kearns on the block

    I'm not kicking Kearns out the door, but he's the one most likely to be dealt. I think a Freel/Deno combo could offset any loss in offense/defense that kearns leaving would create.

    The trade RedLeader mentioned is an interesting one. I'd hope Krivsky would give some long, hard thoughts to that deal if it were presented...

    It sure would be nice to have all the insiders we had a while back to shed some light on some of this.

    Re: Kearns on the block

    There is truth to a report airing in Columbus stating a big trade was in the beginning stages or something along those lines if there is any question about that. I didn't hear it myself but a buddy was telling me about it from there.

    The two that seem most plausible are something with Florida, more likely for Willis than Cabrera, and something with Chicago White Sox. If they were to do that McCarthy/Anderson for Schmidt trade, they want a CF back and are reported to be offering Garland or Vazquez, maybe Garcia for one. This could make sense for Griffey potentially.

    As much I'd love this to happen, if Willis is on the block the Fish will field better deals than that for him. No way he and Cabrera go in the same deal.

    If Kirvsky wants Willis, he's going to have to part with Bailey, I'd imagine. That's something I'd wager good money that he's not willing to do. If I had to guess, Bailey went from "we'd really like to keep him" to "untouchable" as soon as he started AA.

    Garcia? Definitely interested. Vazquez? Less so. I think his arm is shot.

    I don't think any minor league player should be "untouchable", regardless of what they've done. And while bailey's start in AA is encouraging, 17 innings isn't much to hang your hat on.

    I'd do Bailey - Willis in a heartbeat. But, like you, I doubt that Krivsky would.

    And that's very, very sad.

    Because it's highly likely that Homer Bailey's stock will never be higher than it is right now.

    I'd do it. Bailey might be a succesful pitcher in the bigs. Willis already is.

    I agree completely. I make the deal ten times over. I'm just basing my opinion on a gut feeling that I get from watching the Twins front office moves and the Reds moves thus far.

    I think if Krivsky wants to keep Bailey but still wants to make a big splash, the two names to throw out there are Felipe Lopez and Joey Votto. Votto's value has never been higher (might not get much higher as a prospect, actually) and could be really enticing to a smaller market club looking to get younger while Lopez is a relatively inexpensive bat (for this year) with speed that could help the Reds pull in a good haul of prospects and bullpen help from a larger market club.

    This is a fun thread but I better get back to work.

    Garcia isn't much better. Declining strikeout rate, lots of HR allowed. Blech.

    Kearns for Jake Westbrook? Westbrook is a groundball specialist, which is a big plus, but he can't strike batters out (4.5 K per 9 IP -- ugly). Nothing really exciting, but serviceable. I'd rather deal Kearns for an advanced prospect with a live arm, but Westbrook would be an OK return who could help the team right now.

    Kearns for Westbrook and Guillermo Mota? I think I'd do that deal.

    Re: Kearns on the block

    Votto seems like a logical trade target. High value high ceiling for a smaller market team. We have plenty of guys that could fill in first base in the future (if they would agree to it)
