    Prior to Reds???

    Reds considering Mark Prior
    Cincinnati's search for arms has the club taking a hard look at Cubs right-hander Mark Prior.

    Prior, coming off right shoulder surgery, won't be able to pitch before May at the earliest, and perhaps not until August. But he is expected to pitch in 2008, and the Cubs have until Dec. 12 to offer him arbitration. He would be eligible for free agency after the 2008 season, so it is understandable, considering that and his health issues, that the Cubs might entertain offers for him, especially if they can address a need.
    The Cubs are looking for a left-handed-hitting outfielder. The Reds have a few players who fit the bill, including Josh Hamilton, a player the Cubs claimed in the Rule 5 Draft before trading him to Cincinnati

    God that would be bad for Prior. Dusty would just ruin his arm some more.

    If you can get Josh Hamilton for Prior, take it. It's a no-brainer.

    With our luck he will become a cy-young winner... If he stays he will stink.

    It's not very logical, but you do what you have to do to get pitching these days.

    We can get much better than Prior for Hamilton. Throw in one more player and we could probably get Cain from the Giants.

    We better not trade Prior within our own division especially to Dusty. But it looks like we are close to trading for Brian Roberts.
