    Perhaps, but I also think my expectations are realistic.

    I predict Hanigan gets eaten up by AL East pitchers. Not a big stretch in that prediction.

    If that happens, it begs other questions:

    Is he our starting 2B next year?
    Is he our starting SS next year?
    Is BP now officially on the move?
    Is he more of a project and start in AAA?

    This could get fun.

    That's what I'm thinking.
    "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 would have guessed Ryan Hanigan to have next to zero trade value.

    So, I guess even a bag of baseballs coming back would constitute quality value.

    I hope for an arm that is in the top 20 of some teams prospect rankings. A lottery ticket basically.

    Re: Hanigan to Rays reportedly

    Kids I'd be interested in from the Rays system - Enny Romero, Jesse Hahn and Ryan Brett. Hak-Ju Lee would be interesting dependent on how his knee is recovering from ligament damage. In fact, Lee would be my primary target if his prognosis is promising.

    Beckham is the kind of player JimBo used to have a fetish for (hype>>>performance).

    Would be very happy with Blake Snell, Richie Shaffer or Hak-Ju Lee.

    Would be moderately happy with Tim Beckham.

    Would be disappointed but certainly not shocked if it's someone in their org outside of the top 15 prospects we've never heard of.

    But his performance still isn't terrible. OBP close to .350 in the minors with a little power. I'd be up for taking a flyer on him at the cost of Hanigan.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Re: Hanigan to Rays reportedly

    I'm hoping the 3 team report leads to someone else coming to Cincinnati other than a Rays player, they wouldn't get rid of a quality affordable player. Beckham sounds nice, but he's not going to change the team next year for the better. Perhaps it's a player the Reds scouted that no one could predict but that they like a lot. I'm thinking a nice bullpen arm with upside would be good. I'd settle for a low A player if it meant better quality return. But that leaves out the 2014 plan.
