    Re: Kearns on the block

    Is replacing Dunn with Cabrera a palatable move?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Re: Kearns on the block

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Dunn Season/Career:

    Career	749	2587	482	639	141	6	186	434	43	.247	.381	.522
    Cabrera Sesason/Career:

    Code:
    SPLIT	G	AB	R	H	2B	3B	HR	RBI	SB	BA	OBP	SLG
    Season	86	311	66	104	25	1	15	61	7	.334	.432	.566

    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.
    I would do that deal in a SECOND. That would be the best trade the Reds have made since...Joe Morgan?

    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.

    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.

    Here is the interesting thing about that....

    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.

    Kind of cool and kind of frightening for sure, however, I trust this front office to make the team better. This ownership is all about accountability and results....something we aren't used to seeing.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
