    Trade Thought

    Homer Bailey to the cards for Colby Rasmus.

    Two talented prospects that people have been down on lately. We need an OF bat, rasmus paired with bruce could give us a powerful lineup for years to come. Cards get some pitching help and depth which they need.

    Don't know that I would want Homer in the division if/when he finally clicks.

    I would be all for that one. Rasmus is another uber prospect. The Cards might actually be open to something similar to that with the state of their pitching staff at the moment. We would probably have to add something in the deal I would think since Bailey's stock may be a little down.

    Giving up on Homer would not be a good move now. I'd give him one more year before I'd even consider trading him.

    Handing Bailey over to Dave Duncan? No thanks.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Jesus. He'd be John Smoltz over there. Probaly take Duncan like 2 sessions and he'd be throwing 97 with all kinds of movment again.

    When is Walt Jocketty going to steal Dave Duncan from the Cards? Let's offer Duncan a multi-year deal........4 years $20 million.
    Who's on first?

    The Cards handing us Rasmus for Bailey is the thing that wouldnt work. But either way trades in division are VERY rare.

    I guarantee you don't. I can see it now, Roy Oswalt reborn to last another 15 years.
