You really need to stop saying stuff like this.
Did might be better than Cozart. To this point Cozart is an average regular. Did has done nothing to suggest that he is a complete lock to even OPS .700 in the majors. If he fails to improve his hitting, he'll be little more than Janish. There isnt THAT much projectability with Didi that makes it a sure thing.
At some point you can't keep assuming that a prospect is guaranteed to make that next step in development. If it were true, every top 100 guy would be a locked in above average major leaguer which simply is not the case.
There are currently about 15 people in the world that can do what Cozart does. That's not something completely worth dismissing. I understand his flaws, and I understand the Reds dont have much SS depth, but how many teams have two SS in their system currently able to play a starting role competently? There's a reason that Didi was so coveted. The Reds need another SS as much as most other teams (ie. if any team's starting SS goes down they probably dont have a great alternative ready).
