....having 4 outstanding young players in the majors - Votto, Bruce, Cueto, and Volquez........and a pretty good minor league system. Every team that wants to trade asks for Cueto or Bruce or something key part of the core of our team.
What cracks me up are some of the trades being made that absolutely have pittance as the return. I look at some of these trades and wonder why the Reds didn't get involved when I see what was dealt......the Reds have far better prospects to offer than most of these teams, but the bigger your pot of gold, the more they seem to want. If they trade with a team that has very little, they don't expect much. It sucks.
