    There is a difference between "telling it like it is" and simply shooting off your mouth and not even being correct in what you say. The "cowboy" should be told to ride off in the sunset.

    Griffey's offense can be replaced. There are a lot of MLB players that can be signed cheaply that can hit .250 with 25 homers. And even can be an upgrade on his defense too.

    You do bring up a valid point on Dunn though.

    Matt, I think TRF is referring to comments made on TV before EE hit the HR to win a ballgame earlier this year.

    Nick Swisher could use a change of scenery, plus the thought of playing closer to his hometown. Put Swisher or even Votto in LF, and the other at first.

    That being said, the White Sox gave up most of their farm system to get Nick, and his salary wouldn't come close to what the Reds would probably want.

    I'd love to get Swisher. Former OSU Buckeye and a guy that always seems to play hard. The city of Cincinnati would love him.

    My guess is one of them comes to the Reds possibly.

    Jim Scott indicated on WLW this morning when talking to Paul Daugherty that Junior was seen "saying his goodbyes" to the team last night, which would certainly imply that he's going to take the deal.

    It'll be weird to see Griffey in Cooperstown with a White Sox cap.

    Wow. This is shocking.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    The best thing for everyone involved, I think, is for Griffey to approve the trade ... so it probably won't happen. Such is the plight of a Reds fan. I can think of 15-20 upsides of the trade going through, and not a single downside (other than the Reds actually throwing someone else into the deal).

    if the deal goes down I wouldn't be surprised to see Weathers in it as well. With Linebrink going to the DL the Sox need another RH reliever.

    With the Reds trading Dunn's good buddy, will Dunn be even more inclined to say, "I've had it with this town?"

    Also, can the White Sox really be considering playing Jr. in CF, as was being discussed on Mike & Mike this morning?
