You're fired as GM.
I'll diagram the six commodities in that trade:
Reds best offensive player and possible future hall of famer +
Overhyped but at least "B" level prospect +
Overpaid but solid major league closer under K for three more years.
'B' level prospect +
A level prospect
So if you remove the 'B' level prospects and the crap from both sides of the equation you get this:
Adam Dunn and Francisco Cordero for an 'A' level prospect.
Unless that 'A' level prospect is the next Willie Mays, I'm not interested.
