Okay we need a jolt...so I say Walt needs to get on the phone with Houston and offer them:

Stubbs/Homer/Yonder

we get

Pence/Wandy Rodriquez

Houston gets their OF replacement for Pence, who is also a Texas boy to build around, they get Homer who is also a Texan and a new First basemen. We get our leadoff guy and CF and another lefty to put into the rotation.

I don't think Hunter Pence would be hitting leadoff for the Reds. I don't really like this trade a lot, but I wouldn't be upset if they made it either. I'd like it to at least appear like they're trying to address their issues.

A few thoughts:
Houston doesn't need a 1B (See Wallace, Brett)
Wandy is better than Homer
Pence is equal to, if not better than, Stubbs

Yonder Alonso and Brett Wallace are very similar players in both age and ability. Stubbs plays very good defense in a premium defensive position, Pence would hit 4th and sucks defensively. Wandy is a solid pitcher, but doesn't put the Reds over the top. I would be more than happy to get Pence and Rodriguez, but I think the trade would look more like this: Reds get Hunter Pence and Wandy Rodriguez, Astros get Drew Stubbs, Homer Bailey, Travis Wood, and a B level prospect. Pence would play left and hit 4th, Heisey would then play center and lead off. Rodriguez would be the second best pitcher on the staff behind Cueto. Not sure if I do the deal, but I would consider it. Stubbs being the only piece I didn't want to trade.

Alonzo can play LF also
Depends on whom you ask...
right now, but Stubbs is cheaper, younger I believe and a hometown boy

Yankees and Red Sox don't need him and you can't leave Yonder in the minors for another 2-3 years...

Not to call you out BRM, but can we at least spell our top prospects names right. ALONSO, no Z people.

Rodriguez is too old for us because we need to be worrying more about the next few years rather than taking the Brewers approach.

I would love to get Pence but we would have to give up quite a bit and if we did get Pence he'd be hitting 4th.

I disagree. The Reds are likely to lose both Votto and Phillips over the next few years. They need to do what it takes to get to the big time NOW. Who knows when the stars may alighn like this again?
