Re: Blue Jays "aggressively" moving to trade Eric Hinske to the Reds
I just don't know why you take on the salary when we need pitching. That's the end of the discussion for me, right there. Graves' contract is up at the end of the year anyway. If you could flip Hinske at the deadline, then do it if it lets you unload Graves, but that means Eric's going to have to play better than he has the last two years.
Too many things have to fall into place to make it work. I say skip it. Save the cash for proven starter(s).
