Re: The return on Aurilia?

My question is simple. If the Reds were to have dealt Aurilia in a deadline deal in 2006, do you think they would have received better prospects? I understand there is alot of projecting to be done here, but I am just curious as to what anyone out there thinks.
Which brings up the question...wouldn't you want to get another Todd Frazier simply by letting Hatteberg go?
