I would prefer to hang onto Cingrani myself, but I admit to holding a candle for him. He is my current prospect crush.
I think Choo would be a great target, but as a one year rental, the cost can't be too much. Corcino/Heisey should be a good start. If it takes more, a lesser prospect could be added. Lamarre, Soto, or some one like that.
The Reds are trying to win in 2013. I wouldn't deal guys who can contribute in 2013. Leake may appear to be the odd man out in the rotation, but he's going to be needed and will probably be integral to the team's success. Cingrani is the only real lefty hope in the organization and would be a big boost to the pen at some point in 2013. Get what's needed for other guys. Corcino is a fairly highly regarded arm. For a one year rental he and a useful outfielder for the mix like Heisey shoud be a pretty good basis for a deal.
