    Well, then it's going to take more than that or some cash. Actually, I'd say it would take more than that to get McCarthy. I can see Contreras being traded sometime this year, but probably near the trading deadline if at all.

    Seems like it would be a pretty dumb move on the Reds' part. Do you think you can re-sign him? One year rental...is that really even worth it?

    If the deal was Weathers and Mercker for Rogowski and Contreras, I wouldn't be all that worried about resigning Contreras. If I can later, I can. But I can probably also offer him arb and get a pick, or deal him at the deadline. But we need starting pitching bad enough I take the risk.

    I think he got a lot better about that in Chicago. He's young enough that he's not a lost cause in that area yet.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
