I can't see it happening. But if it did, it would suck. :(

If they overpay to marginally upgrade their pitching and the Reds still make the playoffs, its a win.

Not like we don't already see Greinke on a regular basis

They certainly have the ammo to make it happen. In many ways, they are like the Reds leading up to 2010:

McCutchen = Votto
Alvarez = Bruce (you could flip flop these two comps given positions and big league success vs. minors)
Tabata = Stubbs
McDonald = Cueto
Burnett = Harang
Correia/Bedard = Arroyo

And like we did at the time, they have a whole host of talent on the farm to make future moves.
