Cueto, Latos, Dickey, Bailey, Arroyo could be the best starting pitching staff in the league.
And then Chapman could close.
This would break some RedsZone hearts, but would create a fabulous staff.
Will not happen because the economics don't make sense. I don't see the Reds trading the farm for a one-year rental.
Some smart GM will acquire Dickey and extend him 2 or 3 years. It's a good gamble. He's a knuckleballer and potentially could be very productive for a few years still.
