Re: Trading a starting pitcher
I would make any starter available at the right price, including Chapman, Cueto and Latos. I obviously value those three gentlemen more than the other four who could be Reds' starters next year (Bailey, Leake, Arroyo, Redmond), but if it takes a Chapman to get a Giancarlo Stanton, you make that deal. Right now, the Reds have major starting pitching depth. It is time to trade some of that depth to land a cornerstone bat to put this team over the top. This Broxton deal just gave us the flexibility to make a major move.
