If Santana moves and the Yanks or BoSox only pay one topshelf prospect, Beane is going to have a tough time asking for two for Haren. I might go Bailey and Hamilton and a prospect or two, but I want Haren AND Blanton if I do.
I'd love to have a guy like Haren, Harden, Kasmir or Bedard, but I wouldn't give away the store. I'm perfectly willing to take a half step back and go after younger guys like Snell, Baker, Slowey, Blanton etc.
We might not add anyone of significance, but after all of the posturing is done I have to believe that the Reds have enough attractive options that some team will offer up a decent starter without demands that are too excessive.
If not, I hope WK goes with our young guys and doesn't do anything foolish.
