Don't like it. Fixing a non-existent problem. Fix the hitting or do nothiing

MLB TV finally mentions the Reds. Says Giants are keeping Pence. Lopez is the guy they will move and Reds are the team pushing hardest because of Sean Marshall situation.
Lopez is fine but I wouldn't give up a real prospect for him. Not if this offense isn't being improved.
For a second tier prospect, fine.
Expending energy on pitching when improvement in that area is likely to be virtually unfelt, all to the neglect of hitting, which could be improved in any number of ways, borders on malpractice. Still, it's just speculation at this point. So....
I don't have a problem with targeting Lopez.
Marlon Byrd intrigues me but I doubt that happens.

I would guess Yorman, Guillon or Cisco would get it done.
Trading Yorman for Marlon Byrd would be a pretty epic fail
Trumbo in the middle of that lineup would be devastating. They'd have to pony up Taillon though, not gonna happen. Would be an interesting move for both teams, though.
