    Ok.. but he plays "above average" defense, IMO.
    When I said great, I didn't mean that he was the best in the game.. I just meant that his defense was an asset, and that needs to be factored in when thinking about possible replacements.

    I don't get the Cingrani/Peavy trade at all. Cingrani is a rookie and having a better year. 2012 was first year Peavy had 25 starts since 2008. Ramirez is a slight step up from Cozart but makes a ton more.

    Starlin Castro is a great fit, but I don't see Cubs dealing him within the division. Set up man in a walk year is one thing, potential star SS another.

    Even after acquiring Matt Garza earlier this week, reports have indicated that the Rangers are looking for offensive upgrades. They've been linked to Alex Rios, Hunter Pence and Kendrys Morales already, and Jon Heyman of CBS Sports now reports that the team has had internal discussions about re-acquiring Michael Young, given the news that Lance Berkman could miss the remainder of the season or even retire.

    Heyman cautions that a Young trade isn't a likely outcome, and the Rangers are still more focused on adding outfield bats as they await the fate of Biogenesis-connected outfielder Nelson Cruz. The Yankees, Red Sox and Reds are all said to be considering Young as well.

    I don't get Michael Young. He isn't as good of a hitter or defender as Frazier.

    Unless they're bringing him in to play SS (which I can't imagine), it doesn't make sense.

    Young could provide something something off the bench

    No way do the Reds need that salary

    I'm not sure I see the obvious fit either, unless the idea is to rotate Frazier into the left-field conversation in some capacity.

    Young would definitely be an improvement off the bench over Hanahan, but how much is that worth in a trade? Especially factoring in the money... don't see it happening.

    Except that Handsome Jack is terrific with the glove, so he's perfect for late inning substitutions. Young can't really play the field and he's really expensive. Pass.

    All Young really gives you is a nice batting average that has dropped in recent years from the .300 level to the high .270's. He can't play any position well.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Frazier is playing near GG caliber 3rd base, you don't need Hannahan's glove.

    And to be fair to Young's salary, Texas is paying $10 million of it this year. He's not as expensive as people think.

    Still don't think I would give up much of anything for a bench player.

    I wasn't thinking of just 3B. Jack can play all over the IF, IMO, and pretty well at that. Plus he hits (a bit) more than Izturis.

    He has played 24 career innings at SS and 11 at second base.

    Not to mention the Reds have solid defenders all around the infield.

    Agreed. So wait a minute... what are we debating? Are you saying the Reds should jettison Hannahan? All I'm arguing is that he's a decent guy to have on the bench and that Young wouldn't be.

    Young is a much better fit on the bench for this team than Hannahan is. Hannahan is kind of useless on the Reds, to be honest.

    Except for isn't it generally useful to have a versatile IF replacement in case one of the guys gets hurt? Young could be a good PH off the bench, but if he has to come in and play both ways, you're in trouble.
