    Braves turned down Simmons for Olt. D'backs want a young SS but Rangers won't deal Andrus or Profar, so they're trying to acquire a SS to flip for Upton.

    Obviously I've made my preferences clear that I'd love for the Reds to trade for Justin Upton.

    However, this gave me a "backup" idea: assuming the Reds for whatever reason can't agree on a deal for Upton, how about offering Gregorius to the Rangers for Olt? Move Frazier to LF, and use our budget to sign a CF to a one or two year deal.

    CF Free Agent (Torii Hunter?)
    2B Phillips
    1B Votto
    LF Frazier
    RF Bruce
    3B Olt
    C Mesoraco/Hanigan
    SS Cozart

    If/when Hamilton forces his way to Cincy, Reds will then have flexibility to deal one of Hunter/Frazier/Olt to fill another need.
