No way do I want to see Costanzo up in Cincinnati, even if it is for the Red who deserves to be cut the most, Wilson Valdez.
Yeah, but he had an 800+ OPS in AA last year. Now he's hitting and the Reds really have no other internal options. They shouldn't have dealt Juan Francisco IMO. Hoover's been good, but talk about small sample size. If they were going to deal a 3B to help Atlanta while Chipper was hurting with Hoover as a target, I'd have dealt Frazier who seems to be a lot like a bunch of other flawed RH offensive players. At least Francisco offered a little diversity to the roster. Its much needed IMO.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
