    Big name trade targets

    I don't think any of these players will be traded, especially to the Reds, but I still think its interesting to discuss.

    Jose Bautista to Reds

    Cozart, Heisey, Corcino, Lotzkar, and Rodriguez to Toronto

    I'm being optimistic here. Probably would take Cingrani too. No way I trade Hamilton in any circumstance.


    Jon Lester to Reds
    Corcino, Cingrani, Lotzkar to Boston

    Not sure we need another pitcher, but Lester has been a #1 through out his career and Boston needs young pitching sorely. They probably want to dump him after the ridiculous chicken and beer incident.

    To be honest, I would pass on both if those deals. Keeping good, young pitching flowing through the farm system is an absolute must if we want to compete long term. We may part with one of Corcino/Lotzkar/Cingrani for a deal, but there are fingers I'd rather cut off than give up even two, let alone all three for Lester.

    Lotzkar really isn't that good though and has a bad bad injury history. I could see the Reds offer Ludwick,Cingrani,Cozart and Lotzkar for Jose. Bring Gregorius up for defense and move Phillips to the leadoff spot:
    1.Phillips
    2.Stubbs
    3.Votto
    4.Jose
    5.Bruce
    6.Rolen/Frazier
    7.Hanigan/Mes
    8.Gregorius

    Sick potential in that lineup.

    Per ORG: someone tweeted to Lance McAlister that on LA radio they said the Reds were the primary bidder against the Dodgers for an All-Star player from the AL East. They didnt specify whether it's a 2012 All-Star, or a past All-Star...as if there aren't enough rumors to try and decipher right now...

    Got to be Jose. I would offer Cozart,Ludwick,Cingrani,Corcino and Bailey/Leake. Bring up Redmond to fill in the 5th starter role and Gregorius as the defensive minded SS batting 8th.

    If they want Leake instead of Bailey, I would probably still do it.

    Homer Bailey is the 2nd best pitcher on this team, one of the top in the league. Your issue with him is very bizarre.

    I have no issue with Bailey. He has had a decent year. But hardly in the company of the best. I just threw out his name because that is likely who the Jays would ask for with Leake also very likely. They would probably prefer Latos over both. But the Reds won't trade their crown jewel.

    I would pretty much tend to agree, he's a pending FA, not much value there. I'd rather send Heisey, who they'd probably value seeing as he's controllable and a good fit for the RH pull happy hitters haven Rogers Centre.

    Sure. But at this point I'd value Bailey the same as Latos, to be quite honest. Give them Leake if they want him. Aside from that, there's no way I trade a starter.

    The only one that really twists my arm is Corcino. Realistically, Cingrani is a bullpen arm to me. Lotzkar is a mess of injuries. Corcino might be great someday. Lester already is. Plus, he's only get better moving to the NL Central from the AL East.

    According to MLB Trade rumers, the Reds were scouting the Red Sox extensively.

    Carl Crawford or Ellsbury, that said, the Red Sox are still hanging on with the 2nd wild card.

    Ellsbury would be great...could have been had in 2010 for a smaller price...last year he was everything anyone could ever want.
