Looking over his overall numbers, I just don't see how he is that much better then what the Reds already have. Yes he had the one outstanding season where he won the Cy Young, but looking at his overall numbers;
60 67 .472 3.82
I see a good pitcher, but not a great pitcher. Add into that he is already at 11 million owed per season, I just can't figure out what people see in him that is THAT much better then what we have. I mean if you are going to deal away significant talent, isn't that done to improve areas where you are weak in?
