    Young would be replacing the LF audition squad. I actually would just put him in LF.

    Rollins' OBP is .323, much more acceptable than Cozart's .264. Rollins was also an elite fielding SS in his prime. Not sure what he is today, and he might be a step slower than Cozart these days, but he still should be above average defensively.

    Rollins also is much better #2 hitter than Cozart, and we know that's where both will be used.

    Can't imagine either or both would cost any top prospects, but the money would be an issue.

    I have a feeling the Reds are attempting to trade for Rollins, seems like a Walt/Dusty player. He has a full no trade clause though so he may shoot it down.

    You would move Joey out of the 3-hole for Michael Young?

    No No, he is referring to Dmitri Young.

    I would be down with Rollins. Even if he does only OBP .320, that's still a full 60 points better than Cozart.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    Rollins may get a boost on a contender. If he is able to be had for some C prospects I think it would be a good move.

    I wouldn't hate Rollins assuming you don't have to give up a lot to get him.

    Young, I don't think does much.

    I think Dmitri Young would be a fantastic addition to this club. Bat him third and move Votto to the 5 hole behind Phillips. Print the World Series t-shirts.

    Willingham is expected back by the deadline. He's no the DL with a torn meniscus, and the injury has been bothering him for some time and seemed to obviously be affecting his hitting. If he's healthy, he'd be perfect for the Reds. He's a good on base guy with power who hits from the right and could slip into the cleanup spot and free BP up for the second spot. But if the knee is going to continue to bother him, he wouldn't be a ton of help.

    I'm not giving up top prospects for those guys. And Rollins would be a significant upgrade over Cozart, regardless of how good he is.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Young would be a good back up, assuming the Phils cover some cost there.

    You would think that the Phillies wouldn't ask for very much if somebody would take Rollins' contract--11 million this year (or however much of that is left) 11 million next year depending on plate appearances and DL time. While his bat has gone downhill, Rollins is an upgrade over Cozart.

    What if we could try to aquire both Utley and Rollins? Utley could move to third and Frazier to LF with Rollins taking over SS.

    The money is obviously a concern so offer some decent prospects and try to get money back.
