If the goal is to shed payroll, going for Wandy might not be the best move-- he's owed 36 million over the next three years. (The sad part is that's essentially what Bronson was just extended for.)
Regardless, if the Reds did move Cozart for Wandy, what would you suggest for shortstop? I noticed the Yankees won the rights to Hiroyuki Nakajima and don't know what to do with him. Perhaps a sign and trade with the Reds could be in order in this scenario?
