    I agree but last year is the rub.

    Peavy just expanded his list of acceptable trade destinations, adding Anaheim and the Yankees. The Reds don't appear to be anywhere near his list.

    Well if you disagreed we would have to talk about the validity of my math.

    Last year is a sticking point and why I would certainly be asking them to take on some of the contract, but I wouldn't shy away from him completely either.

    His 2008 season is the reason he might come cheap. Walt would be banking on a rebound.

    Sounds like he's really burned bridges with SD. I'd start trade talks by offering them Gonzo for him.

    If he's part of a bigger plan, I'm all for him.

    On his own, I don't think his defense would outweigh his lack of hitting prowess and what that would mean for the Reds offense in 09.

    Now, if he's just part of a grande scheme that also includes a big outfield bat, and a big time bullpen arm, I say go for it.

    He's by no means a cornerstone for a club on the build.

    FWIW, Greene has a career .802 OPS on the road.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I had a dream last night the Jocketty acquired Martin, Beltre, Winn and Greene without giving up Harang, Volquez or Cueto. The dream ended before I got a chance to see how the Reds did in the summer though.

    My interpretation of the dream.

    It ended that way because the Reds had no one left to pitch on the fourth and fifth days, and no one after the sixth innings, so the season ended early. Harang and Volquez who had been brought in to relieve by Dusty were early entries to the DL.

    Martin, Beltre, Winn
    Works for me.

    So if we get Khalil Greene, what on Earth do we do with Alex Gonzalez?

    Ideally, he'd go in the trade for Greene.

    Sure, ideally....

    ... but why would San Diego want anything to do with Alex Gonzalez?

    ... and, who would we have to give up talent-wise to get Greene, since Gonzalez would be a salary dump to SD?

    Wait for him to get hurt?

    Report on NESN or FSNE was that the Sox have offered Coco Crisp for Khalil.

    Nice Avatar, klw. I have an original of that box in a nice acrylic case in my office at work.
