    Re: Iglesias trade talk on MLB Rumors

    After seeing some of the trades for closers with similar contract situations the past few years I think you guys are undervaluing Iglesias.

    I'm not trading him for anything less than both Lewis and Gordon. Or Buxton I guess. Honestly I don't think the Twins are going to pay that kind of price for a reliever.

    I agree with Kc61 in that ideally I want a top 10 prospect coming back. Pick up the phone with Washington and ask if they wish they could have had Iglesias pitching an inning or two at the end of Game 3 against the Cubs? And then ask if Robles is still worth another year of taking a chance not winning it all with Harper. Or maybe ask the Dodgers if they would rather have Iglesias in a possible Game 2 or 5 situation this year? Buehler would be the asking price.

    If the Yankees can get their hauls for Chapman and Miller we can at least match that. If they don't like the price fine, we don't need to get rid of him.

    Both of those were deadline deals. It’s risky, but the Reds might want to wait until the deadline to deal Iglesias.

    Either one isn't going to cut it. Considering neither of them are a guarantee to stick at SS, one of them is really far away and isn't showing a lot of power, and the other is OPSing 750 at AA. If Nick Gordon ends up at 2nd after we trade for him that's not good.

    I want more than that.

    As far as the Twins go, I agree that Gordon is a logical target if you think he sticks at SS. Personally, I think there's too much speculation about that too late in the day. If a smaller guy's a ballyhooed prospect, and Gordon has been, and after a full year at AA there's talk he might be a 2B, I wouldn't count on him as a SS. However I am intrigued by some Twins prospects at the lower levels, though: Wander Javier, Brett Rooker, Alex Kiriloff, Blayne Enlow. If they could get 3 of those guys, I'd be on board.
    Rodgers likely is a pipe dream but those packages (Colorado and Arizona) are what I would want as a return for the Reds or I would just hang on to him. Not like he must be traded but that is what it would take for me to have interest in my opinion. I don't care for Gordon to be honest especially if it involves Iglesias. Sounds like he may have some name inflation in his evaluations.

    Stewart got Shelby Miller during the off-season, but he's a starter so I don't know if it's exactly comparable. It that is indeed the Miller being talked about.

    The thing about this situation is there is no pressure on the reds to make a deal so they have to be blown away in order to pull the trigger. I wouldn’t take a deal with Gordon as the centerpiece...

    I don't know which one the OP was talking about. I assumed it was Andrew and the Indians.

    You're correct and I'm a dumb. I just wrote down the wrong Miller. I'll edit.

    There is no reason to trade Iggy for "fair" value.

    He's not expensive. He's a pitcher, which Reds need. He's under control.

    The only reason to trade him is a value gap. That a contender needs and values Iggy more than the Reds do.

    The acquiring team must provide the higher value it perceives in Iglesias. If it's just a fair exchange, there's no need for Reds to do it.

    This. There's a deal out there, but I suspect it will be a massive haul for the Reds if it happens.

    Another SS possibility is Willie Adames from TBR. A deal centered around him might make some sense for both teams.

    Good point. The other team needs to make an offer the Reds can't refuse.
    Wait until the year after next year.

    if the team can pull off a deal like the NYY did with Chapman/Miller or the Phillies did with Giles then I'm for it. ie, serious high end talent coming our way and an overpay. if not then keep Iglesias.

    Here is something I wonder in relation, if Hunter Greene spent some years in the minors as a pitcher and came to the Reds being somewhat equal in talent to Iglesias, would you consider that good?
