Getting GC would change the reds for the better over the short term, but I believe the long term costs would make em Cubs like.
I doubt the Marlins would want Chapman. He's about to get expensive.
The whole motivation to trade Stanton would be to save cash.
The Marlins are going to want minor leaguers from the Reds to get GC. Maybe they'd be interested in cheap young players like Cozart and Frasier. But they probably want Cingrani, Stephenson, Hamilton, and the other top prospects.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
