Reds would then have to acquire a platoon third sacker to face lefties. (Do I hear Scott Rolen?) Or somebody else.
They would have Ludwick to trade.
If the Reds could get Stanton, with a little work, they would be a much more potent offense, a much better ballclub IMO.
Yep. I get not wanting to trade prospects for him. But please don't make the argument that giving up Frazier for Stanton on the 25 man makes the Reds a lesser team.
