From his chat today...

Walter L (Orono, ME): After "Revamping his mechanics" this offseason, would Volquez fall in your top 100 right now? If so, around where? What kind of pitcher does he end up being?

Kevin Goldstein: Edinson's pitched 80 innings in the big leagues, so he wouldn't be eligible. That said, I've always been a huge fan of his upside, and I'm in the extreme minority it seems in thinking that the Reds got the better end of that deal.

Or maybe he does, because from what I can gather, most think the deal favors neither. It's a trade that looks to greatly benefit both teams, as both Hamilton and Volquez are very good players that fill needs with their current teams.

I think the general Redszone consensus was win-win.

Didn't we have a poll? I thought the result was that it was a Reds win based on all the questiosn surrounding Hamilton (drugs, body-age, etc.).

I wish I could figure out the Search option, I would try to find the poll.
