I would think that Reyes for Wright and Furcal is about fair, so you basically gave up Homer, Accardo and Santana for nothing. I don't think Santana is going to be all that but he's not as bad as he's been so far this year- you might be selling the low there. Accardo we'll see on, but I would think Homer would be worth something decent in a keeper league.
In my eyes, I think I made the best choice in selling Arroyo now. His value likely will never be what it was and I think Narron has ruined him. With the same approach, I don't know that Bailey, like any Reds pitcher, can be successful at Great American.
I'm trying to look at this from an objective and unbiased angle, that being why I unloaded the two Reds. I still have Aaron Harang, but he does have a good record plus decent strikeout numbers.
Santana may come back to bite me, but Accardo I see as a one year fix(if that) until BJ Ryan comes back.
Just to show you my judgment on trades, I acquired Homer Bailey for Ryan Howard last year during the offseason. That of course was before Howard exploded and won MVP. At the time I had Prince Fielder coming up, so I think it somewhat worked out.
