Harang, Sheets Available?

The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Reds' ace Aaron Harang may be available as the trade deadline approaches, although it would take multiple top prospects to pry him away. All of the teams interested in C.C. Sabathia and Erik Bedard figure to keep their ears open regarding Harang. In other news, the Philadelphia Daily News is reporting that a Phils special assistant has been in Milwaukee the past few days, giving him a chance to take a look at Ben Sheets. Sheets is in interesting player as the deadline nears as he is very injury prone but can be a devastatingly good pitcher when he stays healthy. With the Brewers hot right now and only 5 games out of first place, I don't see them dealing him unless they received an overwhelming offer.

I dont see anyone giving the Reds anything good for Harang, hes 3-10. The Brewers will want atleast 1 majors ready talent plus pitching prospects in return. I could see the Yankees, Dodgers, Mets, and Phillies making a play for him. Injuries are always an issue.

Maybe the Cubs could deal Rich Hill and/or another pitching prospect and Cedeno or Patterson for Harang. That gives the Reds a couple of pitchers and some infield help.

They don't need infield help and they don't really need another starter
