A-Rod in Cincy Today

I'll eat my hat if:

 

1) The Reds trade Homer Bailey

 

and

 

2) ARod waives his no trade to go to Cincy.

I think Homer Bailey far outweighs any potential offense ARod might bring. While in the case of our Marlins where we can afford to trade young pitching, there is such a dearth of it in Cinci that it would not be wise.

 

 

And why would ARod wave his no-trade clause to go to Cincy? Someone give me a concrete reason.

1. Ballpark

2. Get out of New York

3. Play with Griffey again?

 

I don't think we would trade Homer. It would be Dunn and something else.

Listen, you aren't getting ARod unless it's a trade centered around pitching. An outfielder isn't getting it done. They've already got 4 (Abreu, Damon, Cabrera, Matsui) and a 5th (Sheff) they can bring back.

 

It's Bailey or not even on the table.

 

*1st baseman.

 

And I never said it would just be Dunn, just that I thought he would be included.

 

I think the Yankees want pitching for right now, and Bailey may not be ready.

They've got two of those* too (Giambi, Phillips)

Andy Phillips and his .657 OPS?

Andy Phillips and his homegrown "true Yankee" heart and defense.

 

Tell you what, if ARod ends up in Cincy, without Bailey ending up in New York, I'll buy you his authentic jersey.
