The Austin Kearns Pipe Dream

There were rumors early in the off season that the Expos Nationals were interested in Austin Kearns.

Buried in the bottom of Ken Rosenthal's latest was this nugget:
Say this for the Reds: They're aiming high in trade discussions. They requested A's RHP Rich Harden for OF Austin Kearns and Marlins RHP Josh Beckett for OF Adam Dunn.

Unless Tony Tavares has developed a way to trade the past rights to Vladimir Guerrero, I wouldn't hold my breath.
