    Just responded to your thought. Never supported this trade. Read what I posted earlier:

    Correct target, wrong package...

    I think Inge or Thames is a good idea for this team (I'd take both and make Inge the catcher). I wouldn't deal Arroyo though.

    I'd say Coffey and McBeth for Thames when Granderson comes back is a deal Detroit would consider. Inge could slide into Thames RH AB's in LF while continuing as an insurance policy all over the diamond. Granderson takes back over in CF. Coffey and McBeth deepen the pen options for Detroit and the money between Thames and Coffey is about even. Detroit may want a little more and if the Reds parted with a prospect ranked in the 20 something in the system, that guy would probably be in the top 10 in Detroit's depleted system. Coffey and McBeth may both have a role in Detroit's pen freeing a guy like Zach Minor for the rotation until Willis comes back. Coffey wouldn't give up such a high percentage of HR's on his fly balls in Detroit's park.

    It's not a bad idea, but again, it's gotta be arm that's ready to pitch next year and one that projects to pitch well. It's still ballsy though. I think the upside would have to be fantastic at this point, especially with the Reds planning on going for it the next couple of years.

    The Reds have enough offense. The problem has been "clutch" hitting. Maybe that could be fixed with better lineup construction. The Reds would certainly benefit if they could turn Votto, Griffey, or Dunn into a right-hander. Therefore, I don't think replacing Encarnacion is the answer.

    And as RedsManRick said, Arroyo should be considerably more valuable than Inge.

    Why would LA do that? Kemp isn't going anywhere. I doubt the Reds would do that.

    And hey, Todd Jones could teach Todd Coffey a little about relievin'.
