They are looking at Hamels. Cueto is a better SP than Hamels, no doubt. MLBtraderumors mentioned that LAD could be willingly to give up BOTH Pederson and Seager to acquire a frontline ace. Walt needs to shop Cueto and ask for Seager/Pederson/J Urias. That would be a massive haul for the Reds and would extend our window.
Pederson would play LF next year
Seager would be ready at some point in 2015
J Urias could be developed without a rush.
We'd still have Bailey, Latos, Leake, Cingrani, Rasiel Iglesias and Stephenson. Not to mention Lorenzen, Lively, Corcino, Moscot, etc.
Hamilton, Frazier, Votto, Mesoraco, Bruce, Philliips, Pederson, Cozart
Adding Cueto to LA's rotation would immediately give them a WS Championship rotation. Kershaw, Cueto, Greinke, Ryu, Beckett. I would even add Broxton to the package in order to give LA an 8th inning guy to bridge the gap to Jensen.
Cueto and Broxton to LA for Pederson, Seager and Julio Urias. Walt should at least try.
