    Kemp's a right-handed stick with a world of talent. And only 22 or 23. So, younger, different side of the plate, and with talent that has been compared to Dave Winfield. I would love for them to get Kemp. I just don't think they can.

    I don't know. This site needs more of "digging up the past". We spend all kinds of bandwidth arguing over this player or that trade and only time decides who ultimately was right. Unforunately most folks are too busy fighting today's battles to settle yesterday's.

    In a good way....trading a lot more risk for a lot less risk that also happens to fit a primary need.

    Matt Kemp, Wladimir Balentien, and Adam Jones are the guys I'd love to see Jocketty go after, with any of the following guys as trade bait- although I wouldn't give up Bailey for Balentien:

    Homer Bailey
    Matt Maloney
    Juan Francisco
    Alex Gonzalez
    Go BLUE!!!

    The Reds need for a right handed bat is overblown.

    I don't see anything big happening anytime soon.

    Yes and if it was possible to trade Bailey and Hamilton to a team for Volquez and Kemp I would hope they'd do it every day of the week.

    Don't make it a pattern, Bob. There isn't a win-lose switch that just takes flipping.

    An impatient owner in a small/mid market is a liability.

    He's got a point. If you're looking for a RH pinch hitter, that's great but unless you're going to double switch with him, that's a bullet in your gun you only get to use once.

    that's my greatest fear, the quick fix theory. Homer could be gone real fast:thumbdown, so could Waring and other kids of promise. I sure hope not but I will put my faith in Walt as he is a wise man and hopefully in tune with the dynamics of what the Red's organization needs and can afford.

    I see your point but a couple of factors have changed since that trade.

    #1. Volquez and Cueto have actually performed better than most expected and, even though it's early in the season, the confidence that they will fill big slots has increased.

    #2. The further into the season the Reds go the more obvious the need for another solid OF grows (until/unless Dunn and JR are resigned) and the more information the Reds have about what pitching is in the pipeline.

    Your choice of Kemp as an example is interesting: he's a young guy with a world of talent and a RH bat (whereas Hamilton is, of course, LH) and he doesn't have the baggage that Hammy has. I'd make that trade yesterday although I don't think the Dodgers would. But, sometimes there are ways to make things happen and maybe that's why Castellini has turned to an experience GM like Jocketty who knows the landscape. (famous shrug)
