    I could not be less on board with the Guerrero idea. Just because he's Cuban does not mean he has a whole lot in common with physical beasts like Cespedes and Puig. Guerrero is not terribly athletic. He may not have a single plus tool.

Bad year, recovering from injuries, but I see him as a legit .360+ obp leadoff man in the major leagues when at full strength.
    Prado career vRH .760 OPS and vLH .805 OPS.

    Agree on Eaton...

    It's the OBP side of the OPS sum that concerns me, particularly in recent years:

    from 2010-2012 .278/.320/.403
    in 2013 .280/.317/.399

    I think he's useful, especially if you can get his bat in the lineup vs LHP, but he's below average for an outfielder versus right handed pitching. And if you consider him an infielder, I wonder how much longer he'll be average to above average defensively. Not a guy I want to give up a lot for. The D-backs were nuts to give up Upton for him.
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008
