Luis Castillo adn A.J. Burnett

to the

Reds

for

Todd Walker, Bruce Chen, and ml pitcher


Why?

Walker is a great guy and a gutty ballplayer, but this team needs a bonafide lead off OB% guy. Castillo can garner a .400 OBA and collect 200 hits a year, while supplying 100+ runs in front of Boone, Dunn, Griffey, and Kearns.

Burnett adds the legit ACE we need to counter other teams #1's. We had the opportunity to land one (Colon) but failed this year. Burnett is the man. With Gullett, he could be the Cy Young MAN!

Thoughts?

It is a workable deal with some work.
