If Ludwick came back healthy, the Reds would be stocked in the outfield, but Choo could be gone after this year, Hamilton might not be ready, there could always be another trade.
If XPaul and Deno were the guys filling in for Ludwick, I'd live with that quite well. Deno is off to a good start, not sure he would be that cheap to acquire.
Posted this elsewhere, but if you use BR's hitting stats neutralizer, Denorfia looks incredible out of PETCO. He's a .800-.850 OPS bat out of there the past couple years, and that's just in a neutral park. In GABP, he could be even better.
