Re: Trading a starting pitcher
if improves the team any trade can be made, but one thing last year showed me is that pitching wins and if we have to have mediocre hitting and awesome pitching so be it, but I think the reds need another started not to get ride of one. You can never have enough. Even though we had a special season with no injuries to the rotation we lost Cueto when it counted. We just need some tweaks on offense. Too many strike out guys, but that being said we have pitching and defense and that will take you a long way. If the key guys stay healthy (Votto, BP) and say Bruce is more consistant - the growth of young guys and a couple tweaks I'm ok with as long as they continue to beef up pitching. I wouldn't mind seeing a trade for a contact type hitter with the group of starters like STubbs, Heisey, etc. for a contact type OF I would be ok with.
And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!
