    Nothing against Rolen, what if Arizona would have taken our players toronoto got?

    I am curious if others on here feel a Mark Reynolds over Scott Rolen would have been a better deal for what we gave Toronto? Mark has 32 homers! and alot cheaper contract

    He strikes out too much... Reds fans would have hated him and laid the blame of all losses at his feet.
    I know a lot of people are talking about his on-base percentage (.308 in 2008), but I like to think more in terms of him his in-scoring position percentage. - Our Beloved Manager

    I don't think the Dbacks would've been willing to give up a guy with 32 HR's. The team already sucks, and that'd probably be a PR nightmare trading one of the few guys worth having on the team.

    I don't think the D'backs even would have traded Reynolds for Rolen and EE, Roenicke and Stewart.

    Dude are you serious? Do at least a little research before posting a poll. Reynolds is a young 26 year old putting up huge numbers. They would not ever take what we gave them for Rolen.

    Pretty sure you meant for Rolen...

    But yeah, the Snakes would have wanted more than EE, Roenicke and Stewart for Reynolds I'm assuming...

    Although adding Reynolds to this roster would make Marty's head explode due to all the strikeouts

    Why stop at Reynolds?

    David Wright would have been a great trade target, Albert Pujols too.

    Would the Rays have accepted that for Longoria?
