Stanton, but it will never happen.
I see great things in baseball. It's our game.
I could see the Pirates going hard after Stanton. They CERTAINLY have the prospects to make it happen. An OF of Stanton, McCutchen and Marte could be the new Bonds, Bonilla and Van Slyke.
They could dangle Tallion and one of their other OF prospects (Polanco or Bell) and still have one of the best systems in the NL. Not sure the Reds could compete with that kind of offer unless they put Stephenson out there, which I wouldn't do.
Plus I'm no longer convinced we need a huge OF bat unless it's certain that Ludwick won't be coming back this year. It might be better to go after bullpen help and/or a SS (ahem, Profar). If Ludwick isn't coming back, Rios would be the guy that would make the most sense to me, given his lower price tag and FA after next year.

Ultimately relief upgrades.

If you think about that too long, it will bother you.
I think the Reds will have a hard time acquiring anything outside of a reliever, unless the other team just wants to jettison a high salary.

I would try to obtain Matt Thornton from the White Sox. A former flame-thrower, he's become more rounded as a pitcher as his fastball has slowed down. He's allowed only 3 of 26 inherited base-runners to score. A Left-hander, he'd be very useful to this pen and is one of the more acquirable arms out there.
