is a guy I'd really like to see the Reds pursue. Equipped with enormous power potential, he basically projects as a right-handed Adam Dunn. Interestingly, he is 22 years old, has mashed the ball since being drafted last year, and he is blocked in Milwaukee by Ryan Braun, Corey Hart, and Prince Fielder.
I know there are a lot of people who say big trades don't happen within the division, and a lot more that would say there's no way the Brewers give this guy up regardless of who is blocking him (a la Taylor Teagarden.)
However, I disagree with both of these assumptions. I think this is a guy we should be looking at, especially if Dunn's future with the club remains clouded. The problem is, what would Milwaukee want? They don't seem to have too many holes. If they lose Sheets to free agency, maybe they would be in the market for starting pitching? Maybe if Arroyo could string together some good starts, (and he has a long way to go before he does that,) a package of Bronson Arroyo and Juan Francisco could be a good start? Thoughts/suggestions?
