    Re: David Wright to Cincinnati?

    Seems like nothing but meaningless speculation, sadly. BleacherReport is not a news source, and the article they linked to on ESPN had the author say his list of teams were just 'guesses'.
    "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."

    Ugghh, Bleacher Report. This is not a rumour.

    Would be cool though.

    Sadly if this report was from anywhere else besides the Bleacher Report I might get excited about this rumor. But they are as bad as it gets in Internet reporting and have absolutely no credibility with me. It is a nice thought though to have Wright at 3rd base. It would cure a lot of ills,offensively, for this team.

    It would probably take more than Leake, Stubbs, and Mesoraco. It would have to be closer to Bailey, Frazier, and Mes. And I would still do that deal in a heartbeat.

    I would put the chances of this happening at exactly zero percent.

    That's the easy part. Where's the money going to come from?

    Jamie Ramsey wrote the article if you didn't notice. Better off Red dude.

    ~edit~ My bad. JOSH Ramsey. I saw JRamsey. Sorry.

    Man, that would be a dream acquision..
    I think I would cannonize Walt if he could pull off this trade and extend Wright.
    Would be the perfect fit..
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Re: David Wright to Cincinnati?

    Won't happen, but keep in mind that Wright is becoming a free agent soon and is expensive. So in this regard, his "value" is less than Latos'.

    On the other hand, Wright is a far more proven player than Latos.

    Mesoraco, Gregorius, Corcino/Cingrani (one of them), and Bailey would be a good package.

    Reds might try to substitute Leake or Arroyo for Bailey. Arroyo is effective in NY, but older.

    Another combo - Mesoraco, Gregorius, Cingrani/Corcino, and Frazier. Todd would be a natural in NY.

    Another combo - Stephenson, Mesoraco, Gregorius, and a lesser player, say Stubbs or Heisey.

    Re: David Wright to Cincinnati?

    I don't trade any MLB players, except for Cozart maybe. I really wouldn't want to trade Mesoraco either. But if I could extend Wright, I'd do this.

    Mesoraco, Cozart, Corcino/Cingrani, Lotzkar and maybe Lutz or someone like that if they want him.

    Re: David Wright to Cincinnati?

    Trading Mes just makes zero sense on any level for the Reds.

    Who's catching the next 5 years?

    I can almost assure that Hanigan is not the long term solution. He could become a sub .600 OPS bat awfully fast.

    When Wright is at 3B, honestly I don't really care.
