    I'd keep Homer. He pencils in as the number 3 starting pitcher next season.

    They would only include Mes in a trade for a player they control for multiple years.
    And how many years of control does Fowler have left?

    Am I the only person seeing the window closing after 2015? When Votto and Phillips will have aged, Cueto, Latos, Chapman, Bailey, and Marshall will no longer be under contract. I think the next three seasons should be treated as nearly a "win-now" type opportunity for the Reds. I want a World Series by golly!

    That's a pretty pessimistic view of the team. Votto will still only be 32 around then. And I wouldn't guess they'll let ALL of those players walk. I imagine they'll go all out to keep a marquee player like Chapman, and they'll probably try to work something out with at least one of Latos and Cueto. Even so we have good young pitchers in the minors. Robert Stephenson might be a top 10 prospect. Corcino could be the next Cueto. And Cingrani could probably approximate Marshall to a good degree at the very least.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    Re: Sell high?

    Can someone clarify Chapman's contract for me? He now has two years of MLS. After 2013, he should be arbitration eligible. That means the $3M on his 2014 contract will convert to a bonus and 2014 will become his first arbitration year. In 2015 he has a player option for $5M. If he refuses the option, then would he be electing instead arbitration year 2 for 2015? Would 2016 then be arbitration year 3 with FA delayed until 2017?

    That is correct. We still control his contract for 4 more years.
