    SS-Jose Reyes

    Saw on ESPN that the Mets will be shopping him. This would not only fill our SS hole but also our leadoff role. However, Reyes has been stricken by the injury bug most of his career.

    Re: SS-Jose Reyes

    I've always liked Jose Reyes, and I think he could fit in nicely with this team. My #1 concern with the Reds is a bona-fide clean-up hitter (preferably a right handed hitting LF), but I would take a shot on Reyes if the cost isn't too much.

    What would it take to get Reyes and Beltran both and we pick up both salaries.

    That deal would be awesome but Mets need to send a little cash our way.

    Could we send Cordero their way to account for some of that money? No way we get both. Too much cash. I would be thrilled if we could land Reyes, but I will be shocked if it happens.

    Less than it would take to get just Reyes

    What do you want with Berkman, new bat boy? He is not playing first for the Reds, and that is the only position he can play in the NL. On top of all of that, put the fork in him, he is done.

    That is still a TON of money. No way that is even in the realm of possibilities. If the Mets give up money, they would want more than that. If the Mets don't give up the cash, no way the Reds can afford it.

    Re: SS-Jose Reyes

    I think if the Reds did a trade for Reyes and Beltran, we'd have to include an equal major leaguer for Reyes, and it would probably be Brandon Phillips ($11M). Reyes is set to make $10M this upcoming season and then he is a free agent. BP is a free agent after this season too, so that would be a wash.

    We'd be taking Beltran off their hands since they've soured on him, but they have to take Cordero off our hands since we've soured on him, and they need a closer in lieu of K-Rod being suspended indefinitely. K-Rod isn't being paid right now and Cordero is in the last year of his contract.

    Beltran ($18.5M) + Reyes ($10M) = $28.5M
    Cordero ($12.1M) + Phillips ($11M) = $23.1M

    All 4 players are in the last year of their contracts, so no long term contracts assumed.
    You also have to consider that Beltran and Reyes have been injured a bunch the last 2 seasons, while Cordero and Phillips have had few health issues. The Reds are taking on more risk than the Mets based on history.

    Reds have to sweeten deal with a few prospects. And maybe they get the Mets to throw in some ca$h.

    Reds get power hitting and multi-talented LFer to protect Votto in the lineup. They also get Beltran in a contract year.
    Reds also get proven leadoff hitter and solid SS in Reyes, also in a contract year.
    Mets get proven gold glove and solid hitting second baseman in Phillips who stays healthy or plays injured in the last year of his contract. And they get a closer to replace the criminally minded K-Rod. Cordero in the last year of his contract obviously.

    Who the Reds throw in is the mystery. I'm sure the Mets want a SS. Either Janish, Valaika or Cozart. Not crazy about giving up Janish or Cozart.

    The best deal would be to trade the 4 main parts and not ask for money in return and then not give up many prospects. Make it mainly a trading of large salaries and players either soured upon or positions of need. Reds need a leadoff hitter and good hitting LFer badly.
