Re: Make Billy Hamilton Available...
Last winter at the meetings, the Reds ABSOLUTELY should have traded :
Think of the package of prospects we could have acquired by dealing these 4, all had the highest trade value that they were going to have. We missed the boat. B Hamilton will NOT HIT, he is NOT an everyday MLB player.
I would have packaged Chapman and Hamilton and acquired a RH # 4, Stanton last year, but too late.
But, now I would call Detroit and offer Chapman and Corcino for Castellanos and Rondon.
Also, I would trade Soto, Lutz and B Hamilton for a few prospects. We need to operate like a small market team, we are not a WS team, wheeling and dealing need to start happening.
We MUST trade players when they reach trade value max, that is not happening. Chapman, Hamilton, Corcino and Hanigan should not be Reds.
Chapman, Hamilton, Soto, Corcino and Lutz
for Profar, M Perez, Olt and Scheppers
