How would Peralta AND Cabrera fit with the team? Cause we'd still have Rolen, Phillips, and Votto as locks? Could one play LF?
If those are the options...
1 Escobar after an inteview would be prefered, he's shown a bit more to fit what we need as long as Duhhhsty Baker is the manager (top of the order bat and good glove)
2 Im not sure how BOTH Peralta and Cabrera fit (may just be financial) but Peralta could really be helped by GABP, hit 20 hrs a couple times. Cabrera is a Switch hitter could help "balance" the lineup.
3 Buying "Low" on Hardy would come next, but I worry if he wouldnt be AGon part duex.
4 Which Uggla is the real Uggla? I can't see him succeeding in Cincy for the same reason Dunn was dispised by SOME. My valuation would increase if we were CERTAIN that Phillips could play SS at an above average level. It would be an expensive mistake to make this deal to find out that Phillips can't play SS well enough.
