    Trade Possibilities

    With Votto done for a month, will that accelerate Walt's deadline dealings?Now you must think he will go after someone that hits left handed, can play first and the outfield and can be had without surrendering many prospects as we dealt away a bunch in the off season. It will more than likely have to come from a team out of contention as well. Here are a list of a few candidates I could realistically see happening.
    Lahair, Luke Scott, Parmalee (Min), Adam Lind (hitting well lately, may have too big of a contract), Overbay, Branyan, Kotsay, Lance Nix.
    Any other ideas?

    Their fans don't seem to think much of him....but he was bad until about a month ago. Not sure how much missing spring training and starting in late April hindered him.....but he's been good for a significant stretch.

    I would trade Bailey and Bruce for Upton and a package of prospects for Carlos.

    I don't want Upton for those two.....both have high sides (as does Upton)...especially if Dusty moves on.

    I don't think they can deplete the entire farm system for CarGo.

    you would trade jay bruce who is young cost controlled and productive with a lot of upside as well as homer bailey who is having his best year of his career might i add he has improved each year since his rookie season for juston upton who is having a down year and going to get expensive, don't get me wrong I would love upton as much as the next guy but that is just ridiculous

    Re: Trade Possibilities

    Lets see:
    1.Phillips
    2.Heisey/Stubbs
    3.Votto(when he returns)
    4.Carlos
    5.Upton
    6.Frazier
    7.Mes/Hanigan
    8.Cozart

    That is a powerpacked potential of a offense. Yes, the Reds could have it. But they would have to let go of Bruce,Bailey,Cingrani,Hamilton and Corcino. They could rebuild the system with Stephenson,Triv,Winker and future draft classes while this group wins a title.

    Josh Willingham has played some 1B before. Trade for him and Span.

    Or Trade for Juan Pierre and sign Derek Lee
