and this.....You get to pick one pitcher, within the system, FA or rumored to be available. Explain how you got him, and project his numbers.
I say the Reds sign C.J. Wilson to a 4 year 51M contract. Wilson has now had 2 straight seasons of 200 IP, and he's getting better. He profiles as even on GB/FB as a starter, has a good K ability and would benefit from switching leagues. His defense in TX certainly doesn't hurt him, and the same holds true in Cincinnati.
34 starts, 225 IP 3.00 ERA 210K's 1.15 WHIP 17 Wins.
This makes the rotation

Ok if I'm the GM and I have to get a pitcher by Any means possible this is my plan.
1) I call up Brian Sabean in SF and ask for Johnathon Sanchez, the Giants are loaded with starters and need help offensively so it'a a perfect fit.
Reds trade: Yonder Alonzo and Dave Sappelt
Giants trade: Johnathon Sanchez
-Yonder becomes the Giants 1st baseman replacing Aubrey Huff, while Sappelt gives them a young backup of who could be a 4th/5th OF and replace the losses of Rowand and Ross in CF.
-Sanchez then gives the Reds the Lefty in the rotation that they desperately need and helps to stabilize the rotation.
