I saw this posted in the ORG and wanted to have one here since I can't post there yet. Thought it'd be fun. Post your 3 moves for the Reds offseason. And try to be realistic. Nothing crazy.
1) Homer Bailey and Ryan Ludwick to the Angels for Mark Trumbo and minor leaguer Alex Yarbrough. The Angels get their pitching and the Reds get their power righty. We also get rid of ludwick, who the angels can use in LF or at DH. Alex Yarbrough is a 22 year old switch hitting 2B who can really hit. Last year at A-Adv he hit .313/.341/.459/.800 with 11 homers and 80 RBI. He also had 32 doubles and 10 triples. If the Reds need to throw another piece in to make this deal, so be it. I like this.
2) Sign Dioner Navarro to back up Mesoraco. I can't take another year of watching Hanigan at the plate. Very cheap.
3) Sign someone as insurance for Billy Hamilton, just in case he struggles.
Obviously with trading Homer, we're down a pitcher. I don't want to resign Bronson. I want Chapman in the rotation. While I think he will be good, the Reds may want to sign a back up plan in case this backfires.
Not a lot of moves, but I don't think we will have a HUGE offseason like some expect.
