Re: Alex Gonzalez to the Reds
While I agree with many here that the Kearns/Lopez deal wasn't a good deal, doing it when Krivsky did...has given him more flexibility in the offseason.
True, they were chips...but at $4mm+ that Lopez is likely to get in arb or $3mm + Kearns will be getting..."how valuable are these chips?"
Maybe the "trade" wasn't LaRue for Gonzalez...
Maybe it was Lopez and Kearns for Gonzalez... and WK still has LaRue's cash to "continue shopping".
