    I don't think the upgrade in LF offense would outweigh the production of our ace. Cueto has Cy Young potential and it's pitchign that wins playoffs.

    Re: Would you consider trading Johnny Cueto?

    Cueto is a young ace with a relatively low salary. No team is going to value him more than the Reds do, and therefore you would not get anything better in return. If the Reds were looking for prospects or willing to add salary, maybe you could upgrade to something the Reds would value. Yet neither is the case.

    On top of that, it would be a PR nightmare. The only star player on this team that could bring more value to the Reds is Chapman, and that is because the Reds are using him as a closer while another team would value him as a possible starter. So the Reds could get a star, young everyday player for him or starter. Yet once again, that would be a PR nightmare.

    1. We lose Arroyo and free up a salary spot next year.

    Doea a future rotation of look appealing:
    - Latos
    - Bailey
    - Leake
    - Cingrani
    - Who knows at #5

    And that is assuming we can afford to keep Bailey around. We finally have a rotation and Cueto is affordable, at his peak age and his arm isn't injured. We can fix LF (Xavier Paul is doing a handy job at league minimum).

    My bigger concerns are why Bruce can't make an improvement, is Frazier going to look like his 'meh' minor league numbers and SS is stuck with Cozart.

    Too soon to tell. But, assuming he finishes the season healthy, you have to weigh his contract situation vs. those of Bailey and Latos.

    Re: Would you consider trading Johnny Cueto?

    Right now? No.

    But I am gonna figure post 2014/15 we will at minimum not be able to extend one of Latos/Cueto/Homer. So it is within reason over the next few years if it is decided he's the odd man out.

    Incredibly team friendly deal through 2015 though.

    The Reds are contending now, so trading Cueto for propsects would make zero sense.

    I would seriously entertain the idea. The Reds have depth at the pitching spot. While none of his issues have been major arm issues, he hasn't made it through an entire season in the past 3 without spending time on the DL. If you confident in the young guys you have in the minors now may be the time to sell high.

    And willingly proceed forward with Latos/BA/Homer/Leake/Cing? And ? is our #6? No thanks.

    Contending teams don't do that, no offense intended.

    Cueto made every regular season start last year, though.

    I wouldn't move him. His deal is so insanely in favor to the Reds that any haul we got wouldn't really be worth it. If Stephenson/Corcino are looking like they could come up and pitch to the level Baily or Latos, someone is going to have to be moved. I wouldn't move Cueto until that happens. He's the real deal and the Reds are in a position to contend. Trading Cueto for anything this season would seem like the Reds are giving up.

    Pretty much everyone needs more pitching.

    And if we trade Cueto, so will we.

    Not really serious about trading, I was trying to bait someone into giving us a scenario with a Josh Hamliton trade.

    It probably wouldn't be "selling high." I have to think any other team would believe that Cueto's arm problems are more serious than believed if the Reds try to deal him now.

    You can never have enough depth. Just ask the Dodgers.
