    I'm skeptical of the Reds going after Aramis.

    I can see it now. The first ever instance of a GM trading himself to another team.

    I have to admit, that's an end-of-Jocketty's-tenure-with-the-Reds scenario that hadn't crossed my mind.

    I wonder if MLB would issue some kind of FO hat trick award for serving as GM of 3 different teams in the same division?

    If Walt is having thoughts about another team - another division team, no less - do we really want him in charge of making trades and/or signings right now? And could it explain his lack of activity this year?

    I wouldn't be opposed to going after Aramis. That could then free up a lot of trade chips to go after an affordable SP like Shields or even Pineda.

    Question is could the Reds afford it.

    I'm not sure which would be more dangerous to the Reds, losing Jocketty to the Cubs or watching the Cubs hire Friedman or Beane.

    Same would be true of Ramirez, who would be following in Edmonds' footsteps for the NL Central tour.

    So our solution to having an 37 year old injury prone 3B would be to sign a 34 year old 3B?
    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.

    You could always trade for Evan Longoria or David Wright. For some reason I don't see those teams trading their franchise players.

    There is a possibility that David Wright could become available. Of course the Mets would demand an absolute king's ransom in return, and I'm not sure I'd empty the farm for him instead of the Reds' other needs.
