    Would You Do A Leake for Cespedes Deal?

    The discussion started out as a Latos for Cespedes deal but the article said a better fit would be Leake since their is no history of injuries. So Reds fans, would you give your approval to this deal?

    A 14-year-old reporter tweets that it's a done deal, then it's not.

    What in the world just happened? I saw the Brayan Peņa tweet and followed a rabbit hole to a 14-year-old kid who "broke" a trade and then retracted it because his "source" mislead him.

    Why? Look at Leake's stats the past two years and tell me why Boston wouldn't do it?

    My buddy. avid Red Sox fan, sent me the tweet. Apparently this kid has reported trades in the past before they broke on the national level. I rarely get on twitter and saw the fancy logo and said why not. If it was a trade for Leake it would make sense for both parties involved and the kid has gotten a few right in the past.

    Some people are more concernced with being first rather than being correct. I agree with thatcoolguy_22, Twitter is the worst thing ever. It has dumbed down the entire Internet. I truly believe that people who enjoy Twitter are not very intelligent.

    I think it is a fair trade. Both players are free agents after next year and both have salaries that are at the upper limit of their actual on-field value.

    Twitter is like anything else. It's about what you do with it. I enjoy it very much, but not for reading uninformed opinions and seeing who can break news first.

    This post was way too long to read. Could you please edit it down to 140 characters?

    This. And only if the Braves demand more than Leake plus a prospect for Upton.

    Re: Would You Do A Leake for Cespedes Deal?

    The problem with Cepedes is that he won't get a QO or the draft pick that it nets. That significantly lowers his trade value. I would demand a prospect along with him for Leake.

    Re: Would You Do A Leake for Cespedes Deal?

    Cespedes is not my favorite target, but Leake straight up? Yeah, I'd do it. I'd still like to add a fourth OF like Nava or DeJesus and I'd still look for an option @ SS with a better bat, but while his OBP/contact isn't what I'd like he'd be a solid offensive upgrade w/o a longterm commitment.
