    Re: Michael Cuddyer

    I agree with most of you. Walt will likely make a small upgrade to improve the bench. I think they have enough to get something more significant but they aren't in much of a position to deal top prospects. I'd be hard pressed to deal Stephenson. Winker\Hamilton would have to net a difference maker.

    Getting GC would change the reds for the better over the short term, but I believe the long term costs would make em Cubs like.
    I doubt the Marlins would want Chapman. He's about to get expensive.
    The whole motivation to trade Stanton would be to save cash.

    The Marlins are going to want minor leaguers from the Reds to get GC. Maybe they'd be interested in cheap young players like Cozart and Frasier. But they probably want Cingrani, Stephenson, Hamilton, and the other top prospects.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I think the Reds should give serious consideration to trading Chapman. He may be the best trading chip they have. I believe he's under contract for at least a couple more years and at a fairly manageable price. Including him in a deal could mean the team won't have to bleed more of its top prospects like it has the last two years. He may not bring Stanton, but he could fetch a pretty good young bat from another contending team that isn't just a rental. As far as a closer, I think the Reds still have several guys down in the bullpen who can get three outs in the 9th inning.

    Cuddyer is an All Star...typically you have to give something up to get an All Star
    Yup and he is bound to regress. It would be a classic mistake of buying high. Plus being in the NL West, I don't think the Rockies will necessarily sell off parts anyway.

    Thing is if the Rocks sell Cuddyer it will only be to get better now, I don't see them selling and giving up on the season. So any Cuddyer deal would mean a meaningful parts(s) from the Reds which might be a spinning wheels type of move.

    Not to mention paying for his 1st half production and likely not getting that production in the 2nd half.
