Agreed. If we can't fit Ludwick in the 2013 and beyond budget or if Walt doesn't think Luddy is going to repeat 2012, the Reds would be foolish to not try to acquire a LF via trade. We don't have an impact corner outfield prospect close to the bigs and we do have a lot of pitching available.
I would like Walt to call the Royals and Marlins and see what the prices are for Myers and Stanton. Let's see if we can just slightly overpay for one of them and put the Reds in much better position.
