Re: Salty solution
I think Griffey to ATL makes a tremendous amount of sense. He is going to be a draw when he hits 600. He is a proven veteran who has been pretty healthy this year and has finally gotten his bat right. His contract is not huge for his production and it is not that long any more. And Jr would be closer to home and playing with a legitimate contender.
Salty may be a very good prospect (top notch, in fact) but you are still talking about a prospect, a guy who you don't know what you are going to get at ML level. If ATL has an OF and offensive hole, you give up Salty for Jr every time, especially if CIN pays some of the contract IMO.
