Even though I didn't really want the Reds to resign Ludwick, and would love to have Upton on the Reds, I would consider it shady to sign him to a two year deal, and trade him before the season.
And also, Walker and Hultzen are both top 10 prospects, and I beleive Frankin is top 50. So I doubt the above proposal would be anywhere close to enough if the DBacks were getting back Franklin + one of the pitchers + others.
