I'm' not advocating a trade, and the Bucs wouldn't likely trade him to the Reds, and he would cost too many prospects probably.
But another serious reliever would help this ballclub reach the top, or pretty close to the top. Hanrahan is such a guy, I'd love to see it, but it pretty clearly won't happen.
If the Reds obtained Brad Hand and Tommy Hanson, the Reds announcers would really be scratching their heads.
In comes Hand to relieve Hanson, with Hanrahan now warming in the bullpen. And here's the pitch from Hand to Hanigan. It's a bunt to Hannahan at third.........the throw to the plate to Hanigan. It gets away. Hand backing up the play.
