You trade one of the few ML experienced players on your team for no apparent gain, and you don't call up your AAA catcher because his team is in the AAA playoffs?
Where is the integrity of the game here?
If we can get anything for Stinnet (even if the Phillies only assume $1.00 of salary) is a good deal.
Stinnet was not going to back with the Reds next year. We need to look at his alternatives.
A great, great trade, and that without knowing who they got.
