1. Cozart may actually force Billy into centerfield. Look at Cozart's numbers - if he DOES hit 20 homers and 40 doubles in his rookie season and next year improves his OBP and keeps his SP close to where it is I'd think they'd keep Cozart and move Billy to CF to be able to have both. Why lose either one? And have Gregorious as a backup? Sheesh You're talking riches there.
2. I think the Reds value Billy more than most here must think with all the talk of Billy in trades. I think it would take an incredible blockbuster to get them to trade him. Straight up for Upton kind of blockbuster. And they'd probably ask Arizona to include some cash!
The Reds, from all I've read, are as high on Billy as any player in the last 20 years including Bruce...
3. Walt has made 2 deadline trades in 10 years. That was in the Enquirer. I was surprised. Seemed to remember more but that's what they had printed. One of the lowest traders at the deadline. Maybe he WILL sit on his hands.
