Re: Jose Reyes Should Be Traded: Stark
Hardy could probably be had for quality minor leaguers and taking on some salary especially since the Brewers are pushing him out the door.
Reyes would likely take significant parts of the 25 man roster as the Mets don't strike me as a patient team. If that's true, one has to subtract the advantage associated with the guy (s) going the other way from the upgrade represented by Reyes.
Since he's likely a two year guy, it doesn't make a ton of sense to me to pounce on him if he ultimately only upgrades the roster by two wins or less.
The Reds need to add as much WAR (wins above replacement) to their 25 man roster as possible while minimizing the WAR going out the door.
