If Hamilton comes up in June/July and siezes the job then Stubbs is not playing in the postseason.
It makes more sense than trading prospects to rent a CF for a season or less while Billy gets ready. (e.g overpaying for Span).
I think alot of people are clamoring for change, just for changes sake. The Reds were by far the best team in the division. No need for any significant changes.
