Also, I'd have no problems sweetening the deal with Belisle as others have suggested. He is very expendable and replaceable on the cheap.
With the Reds' current defense and its very homer friendly environs, you ought to be worried about a guy like Hill. I'll wager he'd surrender 40 a year in GAB, with regularity.
I'd trade for him, but not Hamilton. I'll wager that Belisle will put up numbers similar to Hill's next year.
