Great point about the ballpark. You're right that GABP will inflate the numbers to an extent. The opposite is true for pitching then. Our pitching staff are even better than their numbers right now.
Corcino is in AAA. He's having a rough year but his past stats still have him projected to be a solid starter. Greg Reynolds is also putting up good numbers in AAA and wondering if anyone know anything about him. Plus Chapman can always be shifted to the rotation if desperate.
People can debate whether you would trade Bailey for Stanton all they want, but the fact of the matter is, Stanton has way more trade value that Bailey.
And Miami would have zero interest in Bailey anyway.
Years of control are important atributes of valuing players worth.
Stanton will be a Yankee
Yep you just read that here

As for pitching depth for the Reds.
I've read that Sharky Rogers is a groundball pitcher that projects as a #4 or #5 in the majors. Why hasn't he been moved to Louisville yet?
Reds can't pay all of these guys.
If Leake continues to look like Greg Maddux (just kidding), and progresses to like a #3 or #4..........Arroyo walks in free agency..........Cingrani takes Arroyo's spot. If you knew if Rogers could handle major league pitching, you could trade one of the other 3 for other needs.
.......eventually Stephenson in that mix too, we hope.
I just don't think the Reds will be able to get enough in return for Bailey at this point. A team would get 1.5 seasons of his use before free agency if traded now or 1 season if traded this offseason. I don't see it happening.
Frankly, part of me wishes the Reds could re-sign Arroyo for like $8M for another season. Dude is underrated big time.

If Homer Bailey = Raisor's mom, then Jurickson Profar = ?
That's the question that has yet to be answered.
