Not really. There was no urgency to give Homer away, he's not costing the team any money.
The hope was to get significant talent in return. If the Reds were only offered mediocrity, no point in trading Homer, they might as well take the risk that he'd rebound.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
