I know in the past at least, the Reds has no problem trading extra pieces. I find it hard to beleive only a "bag of baseballs" is being offered.
If there's a young prospect who has some upside on any level, why not trade for them? I doubt they're being offered the .200 A batter or something like you make it sound. Any reasonable guys we can get for 1 year bullpen arms or starter like Fogg should be taken.
Well management is driving you nuts because they can't grip the idea of a sunk costs, so where is your insider data that tell you they aren't trying to do this with CPatt, Griffey, etc?
