You have to trade Reyes. He is as valuable right now as he ever will be. Get something good for him now and let him go to a team in a pennant chase. I don't think he will be worth his price next year, so lets move him along. He has been very good for us in 4 months, but it is time to let him go. Heck maybe Arizona wants to trade a good young bat for some pen help with RJ out.

We own his rights for next year so I think unless you get true value you keep him to setup for next year and trade him mid season next year. I think if we trade him a lot of fans will be ticked

The Devil Rays have a 2.85 million option on Reyes for next year. That is not exactly a great deal. His value is much higher right now then it will be this offseason or this time next year because he a great run in April and May that he will never reproduce again. You move him now easily. One of these teams should be willing to give up a decent arm or bat for some bullpen help.

I read that sometime last week. I would love to get Clement to strengthen our catcher position, but I think Seattle would want a bit more even with Johjima blocking the way for Clement to come up. I think our best hope for this trade to happen would be for the Angels to pull off a huge trade and force Seattle's hand in improving their team.

It looks like the USS Mariner is worried about this proposed Reyes for Clement deal as well.

There just might be something to this Reyes deal, as the Mariner is normally a very good read and pretty straight forward.
