Think of it like this. We had Casey, Griffey, Kearns, and Dunn. We traded all four of those guys and who do we have to show for it.

Bill Bray and Nick Masset.

Any other crazy trades come to mind?

 

How are those trades crazy? Dunn was going to leave after the season, Griffey was old, Casey was in decline, and Kearns well I mean is he still even in the majors?

You weren't being serious with the bolded were you? He was a deadline deal to the Yankees, and is one of only 100 guys still playing...

You can't just look at who came in the actual trade. You also have to look at how the money was spent. I'm in the bag for Dunn. However, he wanted more than the Reds were willing to pay so he got shipped and his money was put to use elsewhere. In a perfect world (ie Yanks/Sox/Angels) you can have both. Had the Reds had their cash they could have kept a 40/100/100 guy AND gotten Rolen and Chapman.

 

Budgets have as much determination on trades as talent does.

Budget over talent more so in baseball.

UKM ... this guy? Are you seriously trying to get us to think the Reds are missing something with this guy? Come on now ... you know us better than that.

I can't recall; who did we get in exchange for Sean Casey?

 

We also still have Micah Owings, Dallas Buck & Wilkin Castillo, all of whom we acquired in exchange for Adam Donkey Dunn.

 

 

Casey was traded for Jimmy Anderson.

Where did I say they were missing anything? He asked if he was still in the majors, and I was simply making sure he was joking about that....:confused:

It seemed like you were inferring that he was crazy for asking if Kearns is still in baseball. Sorry about misunderstanding. Personally, I am a little surprised Kearns still is in baseball, but he had a respectable year this year so he may hang on another year. Bottom line, no one in Cincinnati is missing Kearns.
