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?
If we had the spoils I mention above and Cozart is traded, we could afford Janish in the lineup hitting 8th until the trade deadline, then grab an All Star caliber SS for nearly nothing from a non contender.
