While I was stirring up trouble over at Bleed Cubbie Blue, one of the posters brought this link at MLB trade rumors to my attention. It cites a story in Newsday and the fact that Adam Dunn started in left field the other day as evidence that the Reds are ready to trade an outfielder.
Now, just because I said the same thing back when the Reds signed Hatteberg doesn't mean I'm convinced now. Who's even offering the kind of pitching that the Reds want? I tend to think that if decent pitching were available for the minor cost of one Reds slugger, we'd have it by now.
Still, I'd be pretty thrilled if there were someone awesome we could get for one of our outfielders. I'm all for giving the Heartthrob a chance.
