Me too. This is the Reds best trading chip that the team could afford to part with. Deno takes his role in the OF and with the team intent on leaving Phillips at 2B and pursuing a SS there is not a lot of place to play. He would surely spot for Deno and Griffey some and is a good insurance policy, but that is kind of a luxury on a team with so many needs.
