If Wood can stick at SS I do it. Otherwise, I'd try a different package.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

I'd rather look for a legit catching prospect. With Cozart almost ready for AAA, SS is not a pressing need and we may have a jam up there when Valaika returns. Catcher is clear all the way down to Coddington.

How about a legit catching prospect plus Brandon Wood? The Angels have a 21 year old at AA named Hank Conger who is the Project Prospect #128. What would it take to get Wood and Conger and maybe take care of two problems for the next several years?
I like it. Shortstop could be a problem next year. I really can't see the Reds resigning Gonzalez at his present salary. All of the Reds prospects at short are maybes and Woods is probably better than all of them. Whether or not they do well Arroyo and Harang are here through 2010. No one will take their salaries in this economy with their stats like they are. The other Woods should be ready and there is Fairel and Stewart.
