    Reds Listening on "About Everyone"

    One scout familiar with the Reds said they "are listening on about everyone."

    Aside from Cueto, Bruce, Votto, Phillips, and Volquez, this team has no major assets.

    Shouldn't be "their MLB team masquerading as a AAA team"?

    I'd say Hannigan for a rookie might be a keeper. HE can hit and great defense. He's a keeper. You could probably throw some relievers in there as far as trade value - not so much the future.

    So true. We might make some trades but I'm not expecting much in return. All of our trading chips are old, declining, and overpaid. One of the above would net a nice return but are likely untouchable (for obvious reasons).

    There are two types of trades to expect.

    1-Trade of veterans for salary relief. Not much player return. David Weathers seems to be the most likely to go, I thought the Reds were showcasing him in Los Angeles. But trading the highly paid vets will not bring you very good players or prospects, just payroll flexibility.

    2-Trade of kids for veterans. The Reds have a lot of prospects to trade and they are valuable. Reds would need to be willing to take on salary for this to happen. They would have to shoot pretty high because you don't want to give away good prospects for medium level vets.

    My guess is that this trade deadline we will see the first type of trade --- veterans for salary relief.

    My guess is that the offseason will bring trades of kids for veterans because the FO will not be able to stand the pressure of constant losing at the major league level. And the FO would be right to add some top notch veterans because most fans aren't that interested in AA progress.

    I expect Weathers to be traded to Texas and Rhodes traded to Boston or LA.

    Could be. But for the Reds to be successful "sellers" they have to get rid of one major contract. Arroyo or Harang most likely. Or, sadly in my view, Cordero.

    If the Reds could move Arroyo, Cordero & Weathers for value I would consider the trade deadline a big plus.

    Kc61 - i agree with you. ideally the Reds move vets and salary off the books now. then they could have money to either sign free agents or take on contracts this offseason. then they could also trade some of the plethora of 'B' & 'C' prospects for vets this offseason.

    So we get one report that Walt's really out there "making things happen" to land us Hallady, and now this one saying the team is up for sale.

    I know which one I believe.

    He said last night that he's working on some deals or a deal. He's got 6 days to get whatever it is. He said a "bat." Brandon Phillips and Bob Miller told me in March that the Reds don't need a "bat." I bet he is singing a different tune now.

    Who is that bat? What impact bats are left that are available?

    Is he looking for a bat to try and salvage '09 or is he looking for one that would be around a while?

    It would be correct that they don't need a bat. They need bats, up and down the lineup. They have a #3 hitter and a collection of lower in the order junk. Turning over position players in order to get better is going to be a challenge, esp. without giving away any gains on the pitching staff, which is currently looking equally putrid.
