But Upton might be.
I'm not sure about the catchers but if the Reds asked about Upton (and hopefully Brignac) Alonso, a young/cheap reliever, and maybe Dickerson could be a start.
I might be in the minority, but while I recognize Upton's overall value, I have little interest in him.
If the Reds want to find an intriguing shortstop option, however, sign me up for the Reid Brignac flier. I'm not convinced of his short-term ability to step in and upgrade the position, but he would be a low-cost investment and has the potential to hold down the position for several years.
