    That's a little much, no? I'd do Hamilton, Yorman and one of Cingrani/Stephenson, but not both. Stanton can't seem to keep himself healthy, and with Corcino struggling badly, Cingrani and Stephenson are the only Grade A pitching prospects currently in the system.
    Go BLUE!!!

    Florida would probably do that. I wouldn't if I was running the Reds.
    In my mind, Stanton has become somewhat of a question mark.
    His numbers have declined this season.
    Is it just a slow start that he'll bounce back from (or a minor injury he tried to play through)
    Or is he so unhappy that it's impacting his play? I don't know the guy obviously, so I'm not accusing him of doing it deliberately, but it's a concern. What happens if he becomes unhappy here in a year or two?

    I have not seen the guy much other than when the Reds play, but his defense was awful in that series. I would have to see more footage to make sure that was a fluke. (Again, is it because he's so unhappy it's impacting his play?)

    The other thing I would worry about.. When you see a slugger lose power like that. Was he on something, now he's off? Again, not an accusation, but a worry when a guy suddenly loses power. I know the season is young, it's probably just a blip on the screen.. but it's too risky to give up arguably our 4 best minor leaguers for him.

    We have to remember that at the trading deadline, there's going to be averagish LF near the end of their contract, available for practically nothing. With Ludwick still on the payroll, that makes the most sense.

    I'd love to have the 1.000 OPS Stanton on this team, but I'm not seeing the stars line up.... Plus, I don't think it's time for a desperation move.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I had a weird dream that the Reds resolved the return of Cueto by trading Leake to another team for an OFer. Kept Cingrani up.

    I woke up in a cold sweat.
