Re: Reds trade Juan Francisco to Braves for RHP J.J. Hoover
I imagine there were a lot of factors playing into this trade. Mostly, I believe Francisco's lack of options, Chipper Jones's injury, and Livan Hernandez signing with the Braves to a major league contract were factors 1-3.
If he'd had options, he'd still be a Red in my opinion.
