    What would you give to get Matt Harvey?

    Me and a buddy were talking at work. He is a Mets fan, I of course a Reds fan. We got to talking and arguing about what we would have to give up to get Matt Harvey. After a long debate, I told him I would ask the guys from here. So what would you give the Mets to get Matt Harvey here?

    Nothing. We don't need pitching. He's good but with Cingrani, Stephenson on the horizon, and a group of other talented arms in the offing, Harvey wouldn't really fill a hole.

    "What we would have to give" and "what we would give" are two different questions.

    OK what would we HAVE to give to get Harvey. Just a hypothetical to settle an arguement.

    The Mets would not trade Harvey, even hypothetically

    Votto and Bailey might get it done.

    The Mets look at Harvey as the next Tom Seaver. The Reds could offer their entire starting rotation and I doubt the Mets would trade him.

    Would probably take something like Cingrani, Hamilton (or Winker if they prefer more power), and Stephenson.
    "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."

    I think it would take more than that. I think the Mets would also demand Chapman, Bruce, or both.

    I wouldn't make the trade, but I imagine it would cost something like: Bruce, Cingrani, Stephenson, Winker, Hamilton and Hoover.
