    I'm fairly convinced Volquez is hurt again. He's always been wild, but not this wild.

    I think the DBacks may well have preferred Cozart as a more proven prospect. No way of knowing.

    Me - I'd take Cozart for now and the future. Very underrated. Like a machine at SS, very consistent in the field. Good power for a SS. If he hits a bit more consistently he will be among the top all around SSs in the league.

    Gregorius - more athletic, better range, hitting a question. Don't know yet if he will field his position as consistently as Cozart does, although probably will make more spectacular plays.

    Just my personal preference, both good young players, but I'm a big Cozart supporter.

    I'd take Cozart over Didi.

    Me too. The future is now. Didi might eventually be better, but I'm glad the Reds went with the bigger certianty.

    Drew Stubbs is off to a slow start. But the most perplexing of his stats is that in 48 PA he has yet to score a run. No matter how much he struggled with the bat in Cincinnati, once he was on he seemed to get around the bases. Nary a run scored so far. Cleveland's record when Drew scores a run? 0-0.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    So you are saying that they are undefeated? Drew Stubbs is the best ever.

    I feel bad for Stubbs almost. A perfect example of 'what could have been'.
    I see great things in baseball. It's our game.

    IIRC, the Diamondbakcs really, really wanted DiDi, or at least they said so after the trade.

    Didi might turn out to be an excellent SS, but you need to give up value to get value.

He's one of those undervalued guys IMHO. While he does have platoon splits, he could be a a very solid starter in a more friendly park-kinda in the vane of a Randy Winn.

    I think Denorfia could be a solution in left.

    Good list. But you know what, I wouldn't want any of them back. I'm happy with who we have now.
    Without looking it up since I'm on mobile, I think I remember Rosales having a knee injury at some point.

    Their GM compared him to a young Jeter.

    Small Sample size but Torreyes is a freak of nature.

    In his first 31 PAs at AA. ZERO Ks. ZERO. The Kid's 20 y/o. He WILL be a major leaguer.
