Good question. Assuming the Reds could actually make use of the money for a big time guy, I'd happily sell off Soto, H-Rod, Lamarre, Guillon and players of that ilk, so yeah, other than Lamarre who I've dropped to non-prospect status, most of those guys would be in the 20 to 25 range on my personal list. But, they wouldn't be chaff. They'd still be guys who have a chance to be contributors at the major league level. Pool money is pretty important. I don't think a team would deal it for chaff. They may send cash, but not pool money.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
