    Olney's Latest: Broxton, Guthrie, Hunter, Mariners

    There has been substantial interest in Broxton so far, and it appears he could receive one of the largest contracts of the relief market.

    Love this. No Bourn, no trading Cozart (but didn't exempt DiDi), no Bruce extension.

    Yes signing a closer to move Chapman to the rotation (I just hope it's not Broxton).
    Yes getting a leadoff man as top priority.
    Yes they talked to Hunter but the money was too much.

    Didn't rule out trading for Upton, Ellsbury, Fowler or Choo. Also didn't rule out signing Sizemore or Youkilis.

    I love the way Jocketty is thinking about this offseason.
    Go BLUE!!!

    He didn't rule trading for some of those guys but did he even mention it? Is he allowed to talk about players on other teams?

    Wow. Blue Jays are all in.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Read it again. He didn't rule out trading Cozart either.

    Honestly, I would take everything Walt says with a grain of salt. The guy does not share his thinking with the public -- nor should he.

    The Royals are listening to offers for Wil Myers. I wonder what it would take... *sigh*

    He looks like a great prospect. Why are the Royals shopping him?

    I heard they wouldn't deal him for Shields or Hellickson. Not sure if the Reds could/would want to top that.

    I'd do Leake straight up, or their choice of any 2-3 prospect outside of Hamilton and Stephenson. Not sure that gets it done though. I'd hesitate on moving Bailey or Chapman (their likely ask) for a prospect.

    Pitching. Pitching. Pitching.

    I doubt the Reds have what it would take to acquire him, but I would at least check in.

    If Bailey+Stubbs+Cozart or Didi+top prospect could bring us Myers and Aaron Crow + Alcides Escobar, I would do it. But I bet the asking price is much higher.

    Crow replaces Chapman in the pen. Chapman to the rotation. Escobar at SS. Myers LF. Billy Ham in CF.

    I'm guessing Kansas City is looking for pitching depth and upside. So a Leake, Lotzkar, and Corcino for Myers and a middling prospect would be ideal for the Royals. Perhaps the Reds could add Drew Stubbs as a fourth OF/ possible CFer for another middling prospect.

    Myers as a LF for this season and beyond looks great.

    Power, good defense-- yes, please.

    My guess is that name only came up from the Royals end in connection with the name Price.

    The Royals want the Reds pitching coach? I like Bryan Price but if I am the Reds I'd swap him for Myers and not look back.
