    Jocketty: Reds could trade a shortstop

    The Reds have two talented shortstops on their 40-man roster: Zack Cozart, 27, and Didi Gregorius, 22. Both are far away from free agency, meaning one could be dealt to fill a more immediate need.
    In fact, Jocketty told FOXSports.com Thursday that its possible he will trade one of them this winter.
    It depends if we get back what we need, Jocketty said. If we dont, then I wont mind holding onto them.

    They go on to suggest the A's as a fit with Coco Crisp coming to the Reds.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Coco Crisp is one of those guys who feels like an upgrade, and then you look at his WAR and you realize he isn't.

    Perceptions of WAR can be equally humorous.

    I'd be stunned if they dealt Cozart or Didi (in a package) for anything other than a middle of the order bat or a rock solid starter. CF is coming from within soon enough, and closer will either be a free agent or Chapman.

    Leake and Gregorius as a significant portion of a package for Justin Upton?

    Are you kidding me? Leake, Gregorius, Cingrani, and someone else e.g. Drew Hayes or Josh Smith for Upton? Yes, please. Heck, maybe even Chad Rogers or Drew Cisco, too.

    Leake, Cozart (I think he has the better trade value), Cingrani, and Yorman Rodriguez is a pretty good haul, IMO, and one Arizona may bite on.

    The 2011 Upton would go a long way to making the Reds offense outstanding.

    Co-sign. I'd even consider dealing Cozart instead of Didi. The Reds have been looking for a right-handed middle of the order bat for several seasons.

    They must be pretty high on Gregorious if they are talking about dealing Cozart.

    I'd guess their ages are a big factor.

    Sure, but they aren't going to shop Cozart and move Hamilton to CF if they think Didi is a spaz.
