    Padres looking for a bat

    So mlbtraderumors says that the Pads are looking for a bat, LF among them, and have relievers to trade.

    I wonder how they'd react to a Gomes for Mike Adams offer...
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    How would Redszone react to trading Gomes. He's been one of the biggest bats in the offense this season and trading him, especially to a team in the playoff race also, would possibly hurt the Reds more than help.

    I wouldn't be against such a trade... Gomes has been pretty solid, but I keep waiting for the clock to strike midnight. They'll probably hold onto him and I say he'll be average the rest of the way, but I do wonder how getting Adams and moving Heisey to left would work out.
    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

    Re: Padres looking for a bat

    IMO trading Gomes would be a massive massive mistake. Clubhouse chemistry does matter & moving Gomes would destroy it. I realize the arguements against Gomes and/or for Heisey. I would be totally fine with getting a better LH bat than Nix/Dickerson to play some LF along with Gomes. However I would not trade Gomes after what he has done both between the lines & outside the lines this season.

    SD would laugh, and if RZ didn't like the trade than they haven't paid attention to Mike Adams

    Redszone might or might not be ok with it but I can't imagine it would go over well in the Reds locker room.

    Re: Padres looking for a bat

    I'd love to see the Reds get this guy, but like Gomes in Cincy, he has been too valuable to his team's success. Why rob Peter to pay Paul when you are in first place?

    I believe Great American Ball Park might be the only place he has not pitched well this season.

    If the Reds were looking for a bat would they be trading Arthur Rhodes??

    Because it would make the team better?

    Mike Adams is an absolute beast out of the pen in San Diego. If the Reds could get this deal, they would have to jump on it.

    Okay, I removed the phrases that must have confused you. The Padres are not likely to be trading a key component to their success to shore up a weakness.

    Yep. I don't see the Reds trading him though because of the clubhouse issues.

    Oh... sorry. I misread your post. We are indeed of a like mind on this issue. Sure would like to see the Reds get Mike Adams though!

    Re: Padres looking for a bat

    No matter how good, I don't like trading any real talent for a middle reliever. They should be available for B and C prospects all day, every day. If they are so valuable to their original team, that they want more for him, let them keep him. A middle reliever is never worth creating a whole somewhere else in your organization.
