I do not think Josh Hamilton is a good example. He is about one of the most unique ballplayers ever, and he was not a "stud" when they traded him, he only had 90 games played in 2007, and he was fresh off of rehab for HEROIN ADDICTION. He was an injury prone heroin addict (and yes...current heroin addict and will be until the day he dies) that has to have a babysitter follow him around wherever he goes to keep him out of trouble. Josh Hamilton was great after the trade, and it was obviously a big mistake by the Reds, but they desperately needed pitching and he was their best chip. The Reds are desperate again, but it is not for an outfielder, as other than pitching outfield is where the organization is the deepest. If they are going to make a realistic trade they need to trade for middle infielders.
A team like the Dodgers is not desperate for anything, so trading Puig makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, which is why I don't understand the point of this. You have said the package YOU proposed is not good enough to acquire a player like Puig, so basically you are just saying "These reds players are not good enough to get Puig." Yippee.
The whole "prospects are nothing until they become major leaguers" argument is so tired. Guess what Puig was a year ago at this time? A prospect. Man, the Dodgers should have traded that lottery ticket while they had the chance. Puig has been really good, but the Dodgers have no motivation in the slightest to trade him, I will ask again...please provide a realistic package from any team that could get Puig.
