Tough break for the Dodgers who can't seem to buy a break (pun intended!) these days.
Suddenly the team with an embarrasment of pitching riches has a pitching deficit- both in the rotation and the 'pen. Of course, they also have to win now, and they have Yasiel Puig stuck behind three OF who all have tens of millions of dollars owed to them over the next several years.
So here is my proposal:
Mike Leake, Jonathan Broxton and Yorman Rodriguez to the Dodgers for Yasiel Puig.
Dodgers get a SP and a closer, both under team control for the next 2-3 years.
Reds get their LF for the next 7 years.
No increased payroll for the Reds.
(I know Broxton can't be traded for another month, but in concept- yay or nay?)
