Reds have to at least consider this trade...anybody but Robert Stephansen and or Billy Hamilton included. Move him to LF and go for that ring

Reader beware. Any time you see " Yahoo Contributor Network " in the byline, 9.9 times out of 10 it's just a college kid writing about his favorite team. Think Bleacher Report.

I know that the kid that writes the Cardinals' articles has already proposed trades for Stanton and Tulowitzki. Pure speculation.

Sure, Stanton would be a great get, but it's going to take a boatload that will include at least 1 player off the big club, a couple arms and some change. Of those players, expect the Reds' top prospects to be in the mix.

Stanton is off to a slow start (.227, 3 HR, 33% K rate), so even a moron like Loria will wait until he heats up to maximize his haul.

I WOULD trade Leake and Hamilton for Stanton.

Put stanton in right, bruce to center and choo in left.

I'd be willing to include Hamilton in the trade for Stanton, only if they re-signed Choo. But then the problem is, Choo would have to stay in CF.

What I really think needs to happen if they could acquire Stanton and re-sign Choo is.......

LF Stanton
CF Bruce
RF Choo

Bruce is younger and would be no worse than Choo in CF. My gut feeling is that he'd be an improvement over him. Maybe not as good as Stubbs.........but still much better than Choo.

If you resolve the defense issues in the outfield of who plays where.........offensively it's a huge improvement to the lineup.

If you offered Leake and Hamilton for Stanton, their GM would laugh and hang up. Add your 2 best pitching prospects, you might get his attention.

It was speculated that for the Cardinals to get Stanton, they'd have to offer Taveras, Miller, Rosenthal and a lower prospect. The first 3 would be the top 3 prospects in the Reds organization, although all of those would be up with the big club.

Idk if it'd take that much but it'd definitely take more that what most reds fans think it would take to acquire Stanton. Idk if the marlins would even want Hamilton. Isn't their best prospect a center fielder?

I proposed:
Cingrani
Corcino
Travieso
Frazier
Heisey

Plus the reds take back nolascos salary too. Most people said that'd be an overpay. I could actually see the fish wanting more.

Okay lets say Reds can only pick one option...which would you pick?

1. Reds sign Choo to a 5 year deal
or
2. Reds trade for Stanton, lose 4 quality minor leaguers and don't resign Choo

Depends who the prospects are. I say neither. Lets go for Headley spend less/lower impact prospects for a player that could fill the cleanup spot while leaving us with opinions in the outfield.

I don't see the Padres parting with him unless it was for mega players and Reds won't do that.

I think it'd be less than for Stanton, and I think there will be more teams willing to outbid the reds for Stanton.

Vottomatic it seems to me that you either want to give prospects that aren't good enough in a trade or give up packages that give up too much value. Ie Chapman. The simple fact of the matter is to get an impact bat the reds are going to have to give pitching and outbid other teams. If you don't want to do that maybe we ought to focus on packages that'd acquire a lesser player that would fill the void.

:laugh:

So you're saying Chapman and Hamilton aren't good enough?
I also offered up Cingrani..........not good enough?

It seems to me you want to give up TOO MUCH pitching.

Most experts will tell you that pitching has more value than hitters. Yet you want to unload Travieso, Stephenson, and Cingrani or Corcino in the same trade. That's wayyyyyyy too much.

We'll just agree to disagree.

I also said in the other thread that to get Stanton, it's gonna hurt a bit in what we give up. That statement sure doesn't sound like I don't realize what it's going to take to get Stanton.

I agree some of my proposed trades have some fodder in them. But the point of those trades is that if I have to give up the sun, the moon, and the stars to get Stanton, I don't want him. There are only certain quality players I'm willing to deal. Then there are my untouchables.

I would deal Billy Hamilton for Stanton. I'd deal Chapman for Stanton.

I don't really want to deal either.

Stanton is just entering arbitration for the next 3 or 4 years. Headley is making $8.6M this season with another arbitration raise coming in 2014 and then he hits free agency. Headley will be making tons more money than Stanton first.

I never mentioned dealing Stephenson. Ever.

Cingrani may end up being good but as of right now guys are sitting on that fast ball. I more or less saw him pitch around ramirez on the brewers bc he was afraid to drop an off speed pitch to him. I like the guys upside but I think it wouldn't kill to part with him. Corcino while young is struggling in AAA. I think he'll come around but losing him by no means is a death blow to the reds. Travieso could be a future #1 but that's 5ish years from now and our window to compete may be long passed. And in all reality we could get another guy to fill his void with the pick we will get when choo leaves. The other guys I mentioned are major league ready pieces that would help the marlins. Frazier. Lutz. Heisey. Yes heisey is fodder but he'd start in Miami. Frazier is playing himself into fodder but he'd still start and make the marlins better. Your argument to me of I don't like him so why would the marlins makes no sense. I don't like him on the reds bc the reds have too many guys similar to him. Hell I like Mez but if it meant getting Stanton I'd help him pack.

The guys you want to give up are either a package of fodderish players and Hamilton

Or chapman and Hamilton.

Losing chapman has an immediate serious impact on the reds. Way more so than would losing Frazier. Losing Hamilton would too because at that point you're stuck with no legit leadoff hitter or cf for next year and you are forced to spend money elsewhere or on choo. Neither deal makes sense. The marlins probably wouldn't take the fodder trade and the second one hurts the reds this year in the year that is supposed to be THE year. My deal has long term effects sure but it puts the reds in a spot to win this year, doesn't make choo a necessity next year. Allows there to be an option of chapman sliding into arroyos role next year. And honestly we can find a replacement for Frazier. I think a platoon at third with Stanton in left would be a mega upgrade over what we have now.

By the end of next year who knows what other young pitchers will have stepped up in the system or who will will extend on the current staff. Two years from now Stephenson who I never said to trade will probably be ready. Sure the reds would have to lose some depth in pitching but to get Stanton and not having to lose a major piece I'd consider that a win.

I love posts like this...just makes me (not a GM) laugh out loud.

Look, I wasn't saying that is ALL I would put on the table for Stanton but instead that I would have NO PROBLEM sending both Hamilton and Leake to the Marlins since those are names people have said they DO NOT want to move in a trade.

I do agree with others in this thread that I would want to see Bruce moved to CF and Choo resigned to make this type of deal happen...if it did...WOW....just WOW...The Reds lineup would put the fear of God in other teams.

I stand corrected, all apologies.

I just find it amusing that when dealing with trade threads (not just this one or this team's, all threads and all teams), people don't want to part with top talent to get top talent.

To get a talent like Stanton, a team is going to have to outbid several other teams. To do that, they'll have to give until it hurts.

Think Leake, Hamilton, Cingrani, Stephenson and maybe a part. That still won't get it done if another team has higher ranked prospects.

Stanton isn't even eligible for arbitration until the end of 2014, so the only way Miami will part with their only drawing card is if they get blown out of the water.

Stephenson is 48 overall and Cingrani 62 in the top 100 prospects, Hamilton 11th. It's not outrageous that Miami would want all 3. Whether those 3 alone would get him, who knows ?

There was talk that the Cardinals kicked the tires on Tulowitzki, so naturally the St.Louis blogs had trade threads. The vast majority were proposal possibilities that didn't include Miller, Taveras, Martinez, Wacha, etc. Basically, all the team's top prospects.

Instead they opined that lesser parts and lower prospects might get it done, due to Tulo's insane contract. Again, I found it amusing.

They have no reason to trade Stanton. He's not making much now and wont for a while. Unless he starts making unwanted waves, the Marlins will sit back until they are overwhelmed.

Any trade from the Reds will probably include Hamilton, Cingrani and Stephenson. Basically our 1-2-3. Maybe you take back a contract and substitute a lesser prospect for Cingrani or Stephenson. Whatever it is, its going to hurt.

I think If you bring up a trade proposal or you know someone who knows someone who said a trade is brewing you should then have to place a wager on if the trade will happen. For instance, I bet my weeks paycheck that Stanton is never going to be traded to the reds

And I'd totally agree. I just brought up a package that I saw as somewhat realistic because I thought others weren't. The reds should focus on getting less sexy names that would help the team win and cost less unless by some luck you can steal a guy like Stanton, which outside of RZ think won't happen.

I think the players mentioned in the trade proposals are a bit much. I am sure it will take one of Hamilton, Cingrani, or Stephenson and maybe 2, but no all three. Look at some of the trades we have made in the past:

We got Latos for Alonso, Grandal, Boxberger, and Volquez

We got Broxton for Sulburban and Joseph

We got Choo and cash for Stubbs and Gregorious

These trades netted some integral parts to this years team without us completely leveling the farm. Or another good option would be to another team and do a 3 way trade.

That was one of my original ideas. A three way deal. Maybe we could find a team that would take a Nolasco or something off of the marlins hands. We ship that team a lesser prospect for the favor and they flip the marlins a better prospect.

My proposal was:
Cingrani
Corcino
Travieso
Frazier
Maybe lutz

I think that'd be a good spot to start especially if we were offering the marlins salary relief.

Lets examine the 3 trades you mentioned.

Broxton was in the last year of his contract traded at the deadline. Choo is in the last year of his contract, Indians couldn't resign him. Choo still cost us a top prospect and a young ML starter.

Whats comparable to the Stanton situation is the Latos trade. Latos was club controlled for 4 years. Reds traded two top prospects in Alonso and Grandal and a decent young ML starting pitcher.

Stanton is club controlled for 4 years. Stanton will cost more than Latos.

I don't want Stanton.

The trade proposals to get Stanton require too much. It's not worth it and the more I look at him, he's good but not a superstar. I think the interest in him started because he's like Latos, under control for awhile and that's the kind of players Walt likes to target.

Reds aren't trading Stephenson, Travieso, Cingrani for Stanton. That would be a minor league-killing trade.

Funny how so many people think Chapman will be the next Randy Johnson and should be starting, but he has no value in a trade to the Marlins. Headscratcher there.

Let some other club overpay. I like watching other clubs be stupid.

It will be someone like Willingham or Rios that the Reds acquire near the trade deadline. Or the players get it going and management does nothing.

Chapman wouldn't be attractive to the Marlins because he only has one more in on his contract before he becomes a free agent and the Marlins realistically wouldn't be contending this year or next.

Chapman would be very desirable to a contending team esp one with bullpen struggles and could possibly fetch a kings ransom. But not to the Marlins.

I think Stanton could be a superstar but it'd require an overpay. Rios is a guy I like though. Good pop. Good obp and lower strikeouts.
