I think that is kind of the problem that the Reds and Walt face in a nutshell. The check list goes
1.) What players are realistically available?
2.) Are they a significant upgrade over what is currently on the roster
3.) Is the value they provide better than what they are trading away.
Just running through the exercise. Say Drew is available is does his .099 superior OPS improve the Reds so much that you are willing to trade away a Yonder Alonso.
I think what you will find is the guys available are only marginally better than what we have and the only way you will not overpay in prospects is if you take back really bad contracts.
