Re: Official Trade Deadline Thread
I don't see the Reds trading for an outfielder.
With that being said, Rios can play CF and the Reds are going to need a CFer. He could play LF this year while Ludwick is coming back, and he could play CF next year.
That's why he is interesting to me. Really, I don't think an upper .775-.800 OPS as a CFer is "mediocre" nor do I think 14 million is overpaying for.
