    D'backs possibly interested in Heisey...

    ...just received this tweet from Dbacks writer Nick Piecoro

    Heard the Dbacks have some interest in Reds OF Chris Heisey. Internal discussions only, at this point.

    What would it take for the Dbacks to pry him away?

    Justin Upton would be a good jumping-off point.

    I'd start by offering Bailey and Heisey for Upton, or Volquez and Heisey, and talk from there.

    I was just joking, btw...I was worried some people would think I was serious.

    Now, a deal involving the two of them, that could happen...but I do not see Bailey nor Volquez being enough to pair with Heisey in an Upton move.

    If they initiated the conversation, the ball should be in the Reds court.

    The D'backs have nobody who fills the Reds 3 immediate needs of 1. leadoff hitter 2. hitter behind Votto in lineup 3. Ace pitcher. Therefore, they need to pony up if they want Heisey.

    Upton for Heisey, and pick one of (Wood, Leake, Volquez, Bailey or Cueto). I might even throw a Maloney or Lecure in there.

    Wood is NOT available in a trade, IMO.

    I agree with Matt. I wouldnt throw Wood into the mix with the rest of our young pitchers. I wouldnt mind parting with Leake, Volquez or Bailey in a trade that addresses a need, but I want to hold onto Wood. He is a notch above those guys.

    I hope they both turn into aces, but personally like Leake a lil better then Wood, but think they both have great futures.

    I think Wood and Leake are going to be like Glavine and Maddux...

    I am serious... Their poise out there is awesome!

    Yeah, I'm a Wood guy.

    I wouldn't trade him, but I'd trade Cueto, Volquez, Bailey or Leake.

    I 120% agree!!!!! Could be one of the best 1-2 punches out there at some point.
