If the Reds were going to even entertain a Stanton trade it would take Hamilton, Leake, Corcino/Cingrani +. You trade from strength, but at what point do they decimate the farm system.
The Latos deal last year made sense, they traded prospects at blocked positions. If they were to make another blockbuster for Stanton they would in essence gut the system, the life blood of any non major market team.
If you would do the trade shouldn't you vote yes?
I think "Do we live on planet Earth?" would fail to reach a unanimous consensus on here.
