No to Fowler. Period. Look at his home and away splits...
Dexter is a JOKE on the Road... Maybe not JOKE but not worth the asking price and anyone who wants to trade Bailey for Fowler is NUTS.
Just say No.
Take a look at Upton's road splits. Just as bad as Fowler's. Then take a look at Fowler's 2011 Home/Road splits. He was better on the road than at home. Take a look at Upton's career #'s at GABP, yes, it's only 15 games, but not good...
I have facts behind my question. I'm not blindly spouting just to be a jerk
This is what is going to happen.
The Reds won't get Fowler, our leadoff will either be stubbs/cozart, or we will sign a cheap and short term deal to someone who can play unitll Hamilton comes up. In left field we will either have Ludwick back, or Heisey and someone else like Fraizer or someone from the farm. If we do get involved in a trade, I see it being for the back end of the bullpen.
How about Homer and Stubbs for Fowler and Pomeranz?
I think that evens the trade out a bit. I still like Fowler despite all of the talk about home/road splits. It could be a red flag, but I think it's a little bit overblown. Fowler isn't really quite as good as he was in 2012, but he's still a solid .350-.360 OBP guy who can switch hit. I'll take that at the top of my lineup any day.
Fowler talks heating up. Looks like the Rox have finally noticed how dire their potential starting 5 looks.
Fowler for Leake, Stubbs, Soto/Lotzkar. I would include both Soto and Lotzkar if that's what it takes. Get it done Walt.
The Rockies and Reds have engaged in preliminary trade talks about Dexter Fowler, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports. Cincinnati could trade players from its MLB roster, but right-hander Homer Bailey will likely remain with the Reds, according to Rosenthal.
