When Josh Hamilton was dealt for Volquez durimg the offseason, I figured another extension for Dunn was a foregone conclusion, but now it looks like a pipedream.
It would be surprising if either AD or Junior were still a Red a month from now. When we've talked of trades in the past, it was natural to expect that pitching would be the emphasis, but this time it seems apparent that offense needs to be the target (and it's probably a good time to shore up the D too).
I'd love to see them add a couple of OFs, a SS and a C who are solid defensively as well as offensively, but AD & Junior's status mean they'll be lucky to get two of those. There's Hatteburg, Freel, Ross, Fogg, two or three relievers and some decent farmhands to sweeten the pot or move in seperate deals.
What kind of retrun do you think we can look for if both AD & KGJ are dealt?
Also, Bronson has put together strong starts in three of his last four outings, is he reclaiming his spot as a solid number two or is it just a great time to get out from under his contract and add more young talent?
No game tonight, so I thought I'd see if I could get a little discussion going. I love bruce, Votto and Encarnacion, but I'm really worried about where the offense is going to come from. I think they have to add at least one more solid offensive weapon if both corner OFs really go.
