    I don't think Kearns would hit 40 in any MLB park, and probably no more than 30 in Cincy's bandbox.

    They are 1 1/2 back of the WC right now, correct? And only four back in their division with 73 to play. I don't see them making the playoffs either, but I think any GM that doesn't try to make his team better at this juncture, keeping his team in the race and the butts in the seats, should probably find alternative employment.

    I don't think that that line of thinking is conveyed by a post that says the guy could hit 25 in a "canyon of a ballpark."
  5. I think both Lopez and Kearns have two more arb years left. And Moddy - isn't Harris mostly a 2nd baseman? I'd hate to see them trade Soriano and then have something happen to Vidro - they would be out of 2 baggers.

    Is there any chance of Soriano staying in the NL?

    Perhaps I misspoke; I'm just saying he's probably good for no more than 30 in Cincy, no more than 25 in RFK.

    And like Hoops and Freelance, I think Krivsky must have something else on the stove. Taken on its own merits, this one doesn't look as good as most of his other moves to date.
  8. One thing I like about the Nats getting Kearns is that Kearns actually hit better on the road than at home. He has exactly 8 home and 8 road HR this year and last year he also had equal splits - 9 home HR and 9 road HR.

    Don't get too high on Lopez though. Last year the majority of his HR (16 of 25) came at home and he has trouble hitting lefties. He reminds me of Angel Berroa

    I have to once again say that Majewski really looks like Nicholas cage to me.

    chris, this is a pretty darn good comparison... he's also just a poor fundamental player. he makes a lot of mental mistakes and that's not something you can deal with at short

    Lou, Marlon Anderson can hold down second in the short term if need be.

    Hate to lose Bray, the rest of them I can live with losing.

    This is a whole bunch of names that just don't wow me, Moddy, but I'd be happy with the deal. Kearns and Lopez both have all-star potential but both also give their manager headaches, too.
