I would much rather keep Hamilton and with Headley making $8.75M this year we would have to clear some payroll to make this happen.
So what do you think of Bailey and Frazier for Headley?
This might seem a little steep but remember were talking about a switch hitting 3B who will probably hit 30+ HRs in GABP. Frazier played great last year but he may come back down to earth this year. Bailey is getting expensive and we have a lot of SP depth so trading him shouldn't hurt us to bad.
Never liked Bowden. I hear him on mlbnetwork.radio frequently, and he is often off his rocker with his trade suggestions. Offering Hamilton and Frazier would be absurd. You don't trade your #1 prospect without getting one heckuva return, and Headley is nowhere near enough. Seems to me the Reds have setup CF to be claimed by Hamilton in 2014, and they aren't going to part with him easily.
Perhaps trade suggestions like this one are the reason "Leatherpant" isn't likely to ever sniff a GM position again.
