    Daugherty: Would you trade Cueto for Holliday?

    PDoc was on 700 WLW last night, talking about how that he knows the Reds have interest in Matt Holliday. He said that the Yankees are also interested and are prepared to offer Robinson Cano and Phil Hughes. (To which I started laughing because only a foolish team would take on the Cano contract) He thinks that it will take Johnny Cueto plus other stuff to get Holliday. He posed the question to the audience of would they do it. The first caller called and thought that, the Rockies would need more like a package of Cueto, Stubbs, Frazier and Bailey! (To which I couldn't stop yelling "You are an idiot" at the radio. The rest of the callers were pretty much against the idea. PDoc, responded with "How will you fill that RH power bat hole?" As if there are no other options to be had.

    Your thoughts?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Absolutely not. Cueto has a bright future ahead of him and trading him for offense opens up another hole in the rotation. Plus Holliday will be very expensive. Focus on someone cheaper with upside, like Nelson Cruz or Jeremy Hermida.

    The Yanks know they can outpay every other team, so if Holliday is looking for a max payday they'll be able to lock him up long-term. The Reds can't throw away talent like Cueto for a rental, no way.

    The Rockies do want Cueto + Francisco + something else for Holliday. Not speculation, its what they told the Reds according to a scout I know. And no, I wouldn't. Not for 1 year. If Holliday had 3 years, yes, I would.

    Holliday at this point in his career makes a lot more sense for the Yankees. Cueto at this point in his career makes a lot more sense for the Reds.

    I agree with jojos statement. If the Reds were granted a window to sign him long term then yes I do the deal. No window.. No deal. Perhaps the Rox would take Arroyo, Maloney/Thompson, and Fransisco

    Doubtful. They are said to be locked in on Cueto and Francisco as absolute have to be included guys.

    I'm a little nervous now. I'd much rather hope for a breakout year from Hermida than give away crucial pieces like Cueto.

    no.

    Now, if it were Bailey + Francisco + something else then I say yes.

    Yes.

    Daugherty appears to have made it his new life's mission (now that he has run Dunn out of town) to trade Cueto.

    I would not trade Cueto for Holliday. I would however, offer them Bailey, Arroyo or even Votto instead, along with guys like Francisco.

    Re: Daugherty: Would you trade Cueto for Holliday?

    In 1353 official at bats at Coors Field, Holiday has been a monster, hitting .357 with a .423 OBP, a .645 S.PCT., and 84 HRs and 307 RBI. Unfortunately, he is unlikely to hit like that if GABP is his home park. His career road numbers, in 1303 at bats, include an average of .280, a .348 OBP, a .455 S.Pct., 44 HRs and 176 RBI. His salary demands will also be huge. No way do I trade away Cueto for that, no way do I pay Holliday $15,000,000 or so a season to be a leftfielder who hits .280 .348 .455.
