Re: best current Reds lineup
I think it'd take a bit to get young if the phillies go south but nothing crazy. He's in his mid thirties and I'm pretty sure in the last year of his contract. Willingham could be nice but I see him creating an outfield logjam with ludwick coming back and not improving the D much with choo in center. I think Headley would be an incredible pickup. I'd almost consider trading cueto for either him or fowler if cingrani continues to impress. Headley would help on so many levels.
1. Legit cleanup hitter. Protection for votto
2. Moves Phillips back to 2
3. Better D at third
4. Doesn't create outfield logjam and choo could move to left if Bham picks it up
5. Allows Frazier to be a supersub like last year where his average-ish D isn't in the lineup everyday, but his bat can still be an impact maybe in a platoon with ludwick who would be recovering or lutz or Bham if they prove ready.
6. Makes Frazier a possible trade chip combined with prospects for a pitcher to replace cueto if he's used in a trade.
