Reggie Taylor's loss would be devastating. Somewhere between the unbearable pain of losing Donnie Sadler and Wilton Guerrero.
Branyan has more trade value now than when the Reds dealt for him. Heck if Dante Bichette can yield a Reitsma than the sky is the limit for the low cost/high-power/young Russell Branyan!
One, probably two of Mateo/Pena/Branyan/Larson will likely have to go in 2003 assuming a 12 man rotation. Assuming Casey/Boone/AK/Dunn/KGJ are all still here.
Either Pena/Mateo as outfielder #4 and Branyan or Larson as the backup corner infielder/oufielder. Maybe a spot for one more. Assuming Castro/Dawkins//?? as the MI backup.
