Reds to trade outfielder?

I would guess that Dunn is the most likely to be traded at this point. His value is extremely high right now. However they had BETTER get a top tier player in return or I'm refusing to call myself a Reds fan from this point forward. No prospects, I want a proven reliable starting pitcher. :-[

No one is going to trade good, proven starting pitching. No one not named Beane at least. Almost all of the top pitchers reside on contenders now. There are a few exceptions like Halladay and Sheets, but that is about it unless I missed someone.

While you are right, I think you have also neglected the fact that not very many are willing to trade proven/reliable/young power also.

if you cant get a top tier player for hudson/mulder...what makes you think you can for dunn? trades nowadays just dont work "evenly". you think CLee for podsednik++ was "even"? i'm from chi-town and everybody says bad deal.
name the last trade that was even or comparable? one that wasnt a salary dumping. one that we can agree that was good for both teams and fairly even..

But it is far far easier to pick up a slugging hitter as a free agent than a top SP. Dunn carries a good deal of value, but I can't see a serious contender trading a top SP for a 1b/of.

they could always move an overpaid Sean Casey and slide Dunn over to first. Casey's value would never be higher after his last season.

You guys do realize that Dunn is 25 years old and made only $445,000 last year right? There would be no salary dumping of any sort if the Reds trade him.

Your points are well taken, but if the Reds can't get a top tier pitcher like I think they should, then they should hold onto him and let him lead the league in homers for another year.

That's a nice thought, but I think trading Casey would be a PR disaster in Cincy. Especially when you are keeping guys like Griffey and Kearns instead of Casey.

That's supposed to be a joke right? I'm not sure what Soriano is due to make for the next however many years A-Rod is under contract, but I'm pretty sure it won't be $20+million.
