Rick Ankiel

I just read about a Joel Sherman article discussing a possible Kennedy for Rick Ankiel swap. Sorry but no link.

I`ve got to say no thanks to this one, they`ve given away a lot of their "B Level" prospects lately. For one year of Ankiel I can't really get behind this possible trade. With only one first round pick coming next year the farm is in a bit of trouble. To sell low on Kennedy here would be a mistake. I`d give him up in a package for a guy like DeJesus who could be a fixture on the team for years but Ankiel isn't much better in center than Swisher or Damon. If they can't pull off a trade I`d rather see Adam Dunn signed, pushing either Swisher or Damon to center.
