Sorry guys if i get you mad with my post, but i was thinking what if we Package Thompson, Stubbs, and Francisco for Beltre, they are having a Fire Sale base on rumors, i was reading other post and how EE makes throwing Errors, with this trade we could Move Votto to left where he has Played before a little and Move EE to first it improves our defense so much and also our offense

Sounds good but that is too much for Beltre. Add one of the other players with him that was in article.

Not Francisco. Dude can rake and he's not even 22.

Francisco will never make it in the bigs unless he drastically improves his k/bb ratio or his BB rate.

I hope the reds are patient with Francisco, and that everybody foaming at the mouth about his power can realize how easy it would be for him to become the next Wily Mo. I watched him bat several times at ST, and as the opponents caught on, The curves and off-speed stuff had him. He needs at least this year, and possibly 2 years, to learn how to cope with that.
