He could pay most of Milton's salary to get him traded and then another 20 some million to get the two Aces plus some talent, but then payroll would be in the 70-80 million range. This teams weakness is in the worste area, front line starter. Our offense is good, our 3,4, and 5 starter are avg., but our 1 and 2 starters flat out suck.
The Reds can't buy their way out of this. Aside from that, there aren't any aces on the free agent market at the moment and the player cost to land established aces would blow holes in other portions of the team. This isn't a quick fix.
