Re: If you're going to trade for pitching, how about some defense?
The easiest way to improve your pitching without getting better pitchers is to improve the defense. The Reds were the worst defensive OF in baseball last year and just missed an opportunity to improve the defense by moving Jr to LF where he would likely be a little above average and installing denorfia in CF. Instead the OF still stinks and now the 1b and 2b stink defensively as well. Hatteberg is a -25 FRAA downgrade from Casey of 2005.
