    Reds Need To Acquire Jose Reyes

    It makes sense for the Reds. Even if it is a stopgap move for this year, the Reds need to pull the trigger. You put Reyes at the top of the lineup and he provides the sparkplug the Reds offense needs. If Stubbs wasn't striking out at an alarming pace, I would say there would be no need for the deal. But the Reds need to make the deal. What would it take to get Reyes, I don't have a clue. But if a Janish/Leake for Reyes deal would work for the Mets, then the Reds need to seriously consider parting with some youngsters if they expect to get back in the playoffs and go beyond the first round.

    Opinions?

    1) Expect seriously strong support on this from Reds44

    2) Reyes currently is tied for the league lead in WAR with Votto. That's impressive.

    You'd probably have to give up a lot more than Janish and Leake. And unless he's willing to sign a reasonable extension (highly unlikely), the price is probably too steep. I'm not paying a ton for a rental unless it's a true ace. Reyes could show up and pop a hammy going for a triple in his first game. Not worth a rental.

    No prospects....

    We agree to take Beltran along with Reyes. Mets save 25 million this year that's what the trade will cost. We give them Gomes, Janish, and Lewis.

    Attitude, cost and poor defense are my concerns.

    We'd have to turn the "Fair trades" option "off" first.

    Walt's done it before. Look at the Larry Walker trade when he was in St. Louis.

    The Mets just got an infusion of cash ($200M) from an investor. They've stated that they will make Reyes an offer in an attempt to keep him. Not sure if it's just posturing, since Reyes' agent says that he expects a "Crawford" contract when he hits free agency. I expect the Mets to trade Beltran, and possibly Wright, before moving Reyes.

    I think it would be great for the Reds to get him, but I wouldn't give up much for him if it was just a three month rental.

    Agree. If the cost is overwhelmingly in Cincy's favor I would consider due to the circumstances we are enjoying right now. I just dislike the tude.

    Re: Reds Need To Acquire Jose Reyes

    The problem is the Mets are asking for the sun and the moon in exchange for him. Plus, he's having one of his best seasons, which increases his value even more. As much as I would LOVE to see Jose Reyes as the Reds' shortstop, I bet it doesn't happen. I don't see the Reds being willing to give up what the Mets are asking. From what I hear, it would take something like Mesoraco, Alonso and one of our good young pitchers like Wood or Leake. That would be a hell of a lot to give up.

    I'd much rather try to trade for Matt Kemp or Andre Ethier.

    I'd love to see the old but rarely seen "swap dugouts" trade for either one of those guys during this series.

    Re: Reds Need To Acquire Jose Reyes

    I'd love to have Reyes and he'd be a huge upgrade for a problem area, but the Reds have bigger needs than SS and if they were to fill them, they could get by with a strong defender who has an OPS of about .600. Given the amount of money the team likely has to work with and that he fills neither a spot in the rotation nor in the middle of the line-up, I don't think Reyes would be my first target.

    I think the Reds would need the Mets to pay some of Reyes deal for the Reds to get him and they'd likely have to give up a lot of talent to make that happen for a rental. If they did, what would be left to deal for a Starter or a mid-order bat?

    The Mets will keep Reyes. If they trade him, they need to trade everyone and start a long term rebuilding program. They aren't going to do that.

    Just go after Beltran. He fills a much bigger need, and will be a lot cheaper prospect wise. If the Reds take on his whole salary, I doubt they have to give up anything more than a few C prospects. And with attendance up, they should be able to.

    I'd pass on Reyes. The Mets are going to ask too much in return for a rental, I'd rather DFA Renteria, caller up Cozart and pursue a deal with the Dodgers.
