I also wouldn't trade Homer or Leake for a song, although I would especially consider moving Leake for significant OF help (someone like Justin Upton). .
I guess if the Reds think Didi is a real prospect, I'd rather him develop in AAA as opposed to being a Valdez guy.. but if they think he's not a future starter, you're right, having him backup MI is a viable option.
Agreeed that trading Homer/Leake for an impact OF would be fine with me.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
