    Why? The Reds best prospects beyond pitching are Winker, Ervin, YR, Hamilton - all outfielders. They need infield prospects where the sole guy standing is SMB.

    Profar's career minor league OBP/SLG/OPS is 367/449/816, despite a 323/473/696 slash as a 17 year old rookie in 288 PAs in low A.
    Cozart's minor league slash is 332/421/753 after 665 PAs in low A through his age 22 season.
    367 career OBP, primarily accumulating data between the ages of 17-19? Profar can barely improve on a 234 BA as a 20 year old and be light years ahead of Cozart. His OBP was already .034 higher and the power will come.

We've got Cozart under control for quite a while IIRC so there's no hurry to push him out. We've got Phillips already under control and there's no indication that Profar can out hit EITHER Brandon or Zach at the MLB level. I'm not saying he can't....I actually think he will. But it's not a slam dunk.

    That being said...why does it make sense for the Reds to deal Homer? It makes MORE sense to extend him. Cueto has health issues. Bronson looks like he's got one foot out the door. Cingrani shows promise, but he's far from a sure thing as the league hasn't had a chance to adjust to him yet. Deal Homer and have even ONE starter get hurt....and you're in trouble.

    Just for idle speculation...let's say the deal DOES happen.

    Cueto gets hurt and misses half the season....not far out of the realm of possibility. Bronson goes elsewhere. Our rotation is this....

    Latos
    Leake
    Cingrani
    ?
    ?

    I don't care HOW good Profar turns out to be, we've grown into a serious contender based on defense and PITCHING. That rotation will NOT get it done. Even if Cueto IS healthy, it still won't get it done. We need Homer. We should be dealing NO starting pitchers. If Arroyo decides to move on, so be it. I can deal with the Reds counting on Tony to replace Bronson....but not TWO starters.
    The deal makes a ton of sense IF Arroyo is offered a one year deal and he takes it. And you left Cueto off your list. He doesn't have health issues, he had an injury. His shoulder and elbow are sound. If the Reds hadn't bungled his recovery/rehab by rushing him back or allowing him to rush back, he'd have made 5-6 starts at the end of the year instead of 2.

    Here is the list of upcoming FA Starting Pitchers:
    (* – player whose current contract includes 2014 option.)

    Bronson Arroyo
    Scott Baker
    Erik Bedard
    Nick Blackburn *
    A.J. Burnett
    Chris Capuano *
    Chris Carpenter
    Bruce Chen
    Bartolo Colon
    Aaron Cook
    Jorge De La Rosa
    Scott Feldman
    Gavin Floyd
    Jeff Francis
    Armando Galarraga
    Jon Garland
    Matt Garza
    Roy Halladay *
    Jason Hammel
    Aaron Harang *
    Rich Harden
    Dan Haren
    Roberto Hernandez
    Tim Hudson
    Phil Hughes
    Ubaldo Jimenez *
    Josh Johnson
    Jeff Karstens
    Hiroki Kuroda
    John Lannan
    Jon Lester *
    Colby Lewis
    Ted Lilly
    Tim Lincecum
    Derek Lowe
    Paul Maholm
    Shaun Marcum
    Jason Marquis
    Daisuke Matsuzaka
    Brett Myers *
    Ricky Nolasco
    Mike Pelfrey
    Andy Pettitte
    Wandy Rodriguez *
    Jonathan Sanchez
    Ervin Santana
    Johan Santana *
    Joe Saunders *
    James Shields *
    Tim Stauffer
    Jason Vargas
    Ryan Vogelsong *
    Edinson Volquez
    Tsuyoshi Wada *
    Chien-Ming Wang
    Chris Young
    Barry Zito

    The Reds can't sign 1 of these guys to round out the rotation?

    Plus Robert Stephenson is rising quickly in the minors.

    I think Dusty had some say in the matter. All Chapman needs is to hear from his agent how much more he'd make as a starter.

    We are speculating and discussing the "official" rumor that Sheldon posted which is that Homer Bailey could be moved since it is speculated that he does not intend to sign an extension with this team.

    While the idea is a good one, it is pointless to start a thread like this for people to quickly check on actual reported trade rumors. Too many people have other ideas of what the thread should be and will not let it be a quick check for actual reported rumors.

    Also, it is too early for an official trade rumor thread because the season still hast another 3 weeks left.

    No matter how talented, a 20-21 year old in his first full season in the bigs is a risk, both offensively and defensively. I'm guessing Profar will have a much better MLB career than Cozart, but in 2014, I'm not so sure who will be better.

    Re: Official trade rumor thread.

    Not a trade rumor, but I know we have been linked to Guerrero, but that news is like 2 or 3 weeks old. Do teams have to wait to sign him until after the WS or something? Or are team or him for that matter just waiting it out in hopes of getting the best deal?

    That being said. I am surprised we have not been linked to Abreu. I read that every team was at his showcase, but we were not listed as one of the more interested teams. The Chat today on MLBTRADERUMORS mentioned that he took some grounders at 3B and displayed above average arm from the hot corner. Frazier showed he had a good glove, but I think a lot of people are in agreement that he should be relegated to a supersub role and maybe Abreu can fit the role of 3B. Estimated contract is near $8M - $12M a year which is a lot less than Choo would cost.

    Agreed that it is hard to speculate on who will be better next year, but I think Profar is still the answer. We have Votto, Bruce, and hopefully a renewed BP all signed long term. We need to make sure there are pieces around our core guys long term too. Profar adds that for us because he is very young and cheap. Not to mention we have no indication of any prospects coming up that can play SS, 2B, or even 3B. Profar even has experience in the OF too which can be useful if Choo decides to leave.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd love it if the Reds could acquire Profar. I just think people might get disappointed by his production on 2014.

    Yea, I'm not expecting the world. But I don't think it's unreasonable to expect production a notch or two lower than what BP gave us (both offensively and defensively). Plus, everyone loves hitting in GABP
