    Who should go so Bruce could stay?

    I heart polls.


    This one is pretty simple. Who should go (either by trade, release, DFA, option, being left on the side of the road in the woods with a flashlight and a bag of cookies...etc so that Bruce should comeup (whenever that is).

    If you don't vote, Krono comes to your house and kneecaps you.

    I said CP...but I wouldn't be upset with a Griffey or Dunn trade either

    The fact that Matt chose CP makes me want to rethink my answer.

    I voted Dunn because I want the OF logjam blown up with a splashtastic deal yielding some return.

    If I was in charge of things, I'd give Castro a 300 year contract with 1400 option years.

    I'd choose all of the above, other than keeping Bruce in AAA.

    I really couldn't care less if Dunn, Griffey, Patterson, Freel, and Hopper are all gone next year.

    They just take up space on my desk anyhow.

    I'd like to see a Dunn/Bruce/Junior outfield for a few weeks at least.

    Patterson... Im having a hard time understanding his current employment with the Reds with having Bruce on the farm.

    Perhaps it has to do with the need for someone to chase down fly balls hit in the outfield, particularly to left center and right center field.

    When Bruce settles in with the Reds, it will likely be as their right fielder. The team will want a fleet centerfielder who can cover a lot of ground out there.
    Patterson happens to fill that need. He probably shouldn't hit leadoff and he has slumped badly, but he serves a purpose.

    I voted for Junior to go. I'm not in that much of a hurry but if they can move Junior then replace him with Bruce. Not like bringing Bruce up real soon will turn the season around. I want Patterson in CF, just not hitting leadoff.
