    Trevor Bauer has been an option that long intrigued Sandy Alderson, he was one of the early targets before hiring Porter.

    Now that Porter is gone, the interest (and as youíve seen the reports) has picked back up.

    I believe the reported interest is real.

    The Reds would still like to bring Trevor Bauer back, and thatís where the Mets fit in again potentially.

    To afford Bauer, the Reds would have to shed payroll and the Mets have shown interest in both Eugenio Suarez and Sonny Gray as reported by

    .
    If their offer is in line with these California teams, Bauer will go back home. If they really want Bauer, they need to be the most aggressive team in his bidding.

    You have us confused with Yankee fans.

    I think I'd rather the Mets get Gray and Suarez than Bauer.

    Depends on the prospect price. Saurez's team friendly deal will make his price in young talent fairly expensive.

    I would assume so too, but I wonder if some of that is mitigated by their desire to clear payroll for Bauer.

    At a minimum, Baty would be a headliner of that deal. I like Baty but goodbye if we're bringing in Suarez AND Gray.

    On the baseball trade values site, I'm having a hard time finding equal value for us to send to the Reds and Suarez and Gray. I've got Baty and JD as the main pieces, and still not even close to the value of what we'd be getting back. Unless they love Baty, it might have to be Mauricio to make that deal happen.

    Try Dom and JD with a mid level prospect. Steve Phillips and Eduardo Perez were discussing it this morning and they said that's where it would work.

    All reports indicate he wanted a one year deal, prefers the DC area and wanted assurance that he'd be closing. Presumably to set himself up for a bigger payday if he excels as the Nat's closer.

    The Mets, rightfully, could not promise that he would close and, IMO, rightfully didn't overpay to make up for the fact.

    We were in it and competitive. He wanted something beyond money that we wouldn't promise.

    I like him as a piece to a great bullpen. I don't think he will be a great closer in DC.

    It would be funny if after all is said and done, the Mets circle back and sign Bauer.

    This comes pretty close to equal value...

    Dom Smith, JD Davis
    Prospects Brett Baty, Shervyen Newton, and Alexander Ramirez

    Not because he's a lefty. But because he was probably our best reliever in these two years. You have an idea what you get with him...

    What I don't understand is, why would the Reds trade two quality players to get rid of salary just to sign someone?
    They are weakening their team.

    Yea I fully expect that to be all rumors. If they trade Suarez and Gray to sign Bauer and have JD Davis at 3B now, they are probably equal or worse than they were before.
