Prospects aren't even prospects when they are blocked at the big league level- they are just trade bait.
I'm all for trading prospects but I'm not for trading top
prospects for a guy that would likely only put on a Reds uni for less then a few months.If the Reds could get some kind of commitment from Lee then that would change things a bit.
Like I said, I'd love to get Lee but 10 years of loosing can make you a bit short sighted.The Reds already have a ton of pitching and if they're talking about putting some of their biggest chips on the table then I'd prefer them to be doing it in an effort to obtain some offense.
