    Since the Arizona Diamondbacks traded T. Pena,, Is Reynolds possibly available??

    Saw they traded Pena, and I wondered if Reynolds is available? Maybe the Reds could offer a deal including either Frazier OR Francisco for him??

    Travis Wood, Frazier/OR Francisco (or Edwin if they would take him) and another low level prospect for him?
    He would be the perfect protection for Votto!!

    It would be interesting to follow EE to see if his new team's fanbase continues to underappreciate him as well.

    And Marty would love Dunn @ 3B.

    He's a second year player making a bit over 400K. There is no possible way he is available for anything close to what you proposed. End of discussion.

    Arizona probably likes Reynolds more than they like the above scenario.

    Why would the Diamondbacks do that? It doesn't make them either better or cheaper and they give up the best player in the deal.
    I guess you could offer the mets that same deal for David Wright and see how many takers you get?

    I would love to see the Reds acquire Reynolds. His bat would look nice sandwiched between Joey Votto and Jay Bruce.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    he set the strikeout record last year and is on pace to smash it this year ... not the Reds type.

    I don't know if I could handle a guy that strikes out in more than a third of his plate appearances. Of course, he's definitely one of your three true outcomes kind of guy.

    He's intriguing though. His power and speed combination is impressive. I think he's actually got a chance to become a more complete hitter with seasoning. That said, the Diamondbacks almost assuredly have no intentions of trading him and if they were receptive to the idea, it would take more than the Reds should throw at them to get it done.

    Slight edit to reflect my thoughts.

    He's already up to 114 K's before the all-star break.
    Last year he had 204 K's and 34 errors.

    Why should strikeouts matter?

    Focus on the HRs and RBIs.

    Actually, I wouldn't mind having him at all. Just don't think Arizona would be willing to trade him.

    For someone that strikes out 200 times in a season, with an average BABIP, that's an additional 30 hits in a season he would get by merely cutting down to 100 strikeouts. Though you might have a few double plays in there, I'm guessing that would add an additional 15 runs by just Reynolds cutting down on those K's. That's an extra win or two.
