At any rate, I don't really disagree with what you've said, but rather, I don't see how the Reds acquiring Sutton in exchange for Keppinger was all that great. While I agree that Keppinger didn't have much of a place on the team, Sutton did absolutely nothing (unless you count being released as something) while Keppinger actually had a pretty solid season.
what his WAR his 2 seasons prior to this past season? When they traded him he was coming off a year where he had just OPS'd 657. Actually I think that was a great trade. If Jocketty makes a habit of trading guys who OPS .657 over a full season and don't play great defense for guys with Sutton's skill set I think the Reds will be fine long term.
