These are the type of players the Reds need to take a chance on. Especially since they are lacking in power OFers in the upper minors.
On the other hand, we're paying to fill left field either way whether it's in cash or prospects. I don't think you can automatically assume Moore is a better small market move just because there wouldn't be a tangible dollar sign attached to it.
