    Reds discussing Jose Reyes?

    Hat tip to the SunDeck:

    http://network.yardbarker.com/mlb/ar...h_mets/3778439

    Not sure how credible this is given it's listed as a blog.

    Leake or Bailey, Cordero, and Kris Negron for Reyes?

    Yes, please.

    Re: Reds discussing Jose Reyes?

    Best rumor of the offseason imo.Health and an expiring contract might be the only issues here.Other then that, Reyes leading off and playing SS makes the Reds a much better team.He will be, if healthy, one of the top SS in the game.

    I would have to imagine that the Mets could get some other teams interested if they're serious about dealing Reyes.I doubt any trade discussion with them will fly under the radar for too long if there's any truth to it.

    Re: Reds discussing Jose Reyes?

    When I first saw this rumor on the SunDeck, I thought "awesome." However, I looked into the numbers, and just don't like what I see. He had a miserable 2010 with a .321 OBP in over 600 PAs. He can't take a walk and was injured for most of the 2009 season and his 2010 production showed a major drop off. He is making $11,000,000 next year and has had a negative UZR each of the last two years. I don't think I give up any of the young pitchers for Reyes and think I would rather use that hypothetical payroll space on Zach Greinke. I don't want the Reds to make a move for Jose Reyes.

    Re: Reds discussing Jose Reyes?

    Outside of whether Reyes is worth the trade or not, a trade could work for both teams. Someone on here posted a proposal involving Cordero + chaff for the Mets. That makes the money even for both. I just read on the Cairo thread the Reds could have anywhere from 4-10MM left to spend this offseason. A trade of prospects could work with NY chipping in some $$ to cover some of the contract.

    I doubt there is any truth to the rumor, but the Reds match up well with almost any team as a trade partner and they have some money to spend.

    However given the option, I'm with Edd in wanting Grienke over Reyes.

    Per Fay's Twitter:

    Asked Jocketty about Reyes rumor. "No, we've had no discussions."
    This will not change until the Reds win the World Series.......

    Greinke > Reyes
    Reyes > Janish
    Going by WAR, Reyes was the 8th most productive SS in baseball last year. Its worth looking into.

    This is what gives bloggers a bad name. Loses credibility. If you have something concrete and honest and you want to risk maybe making the club (and possibly your source) angry you run with it. But I can bet Fay (Mark Sheldon too) will never take anything serious again on "The Blog Red Machine".

    I'd like to ask the blogger--who are these Reds "insiders" who have discussed the deal? I knew after reading sentence it was bogus. We could be the Reds insiders for all we know. Another Reds message board could be, etc. and so on.

    People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. And I don't mean that personally, but bloggers are simply people with opinions, just like you. So they're no different from you or your site.

    Maybe they know what they're talking about, maybe not. But you're not really in any position to judge that, as none of us are, since we don't know who they really are or who they know.

    Re: Reds discussing Jose Reyes?

    I would love this. And not just because the Reds would win the yearly Salsa-dancing contest. Forget about finding a LF that can be the leadoff hitter. Getting Reyes would fill two voids: Leadoff hitter and starting shortstop. (I am not ready to make Janish the starting SS, but I think he's a solid backup.)

    Course, that still leaves a ? in LF, but if the Reds gets Reyes, I might have to throw a party.
