    Poll: Would you trade Hamilton for Stanton?

    Let's see how this one goes over with Redszone. Could be interesting.

    Billy Hamilton wouldn't be anywhere near enough to land Stanton. You would have to add multiple other legit pieces to get it done. Corcino, Cingrani, Mesoraco and Hamilton might get the conversation rolling.

    I agree it would take more than just Billy. But I disagree it would take all 4 of those guys.

    I do think Chapman for Stanton straight up would work though.

    Can't imagine there will be anything less than 90% in the "Yes" camp on this one.

    More relevant question is what else goes with Hamilton. I'd think one of the pitching prospects + another B player could do it.

    Remember they just acquired Marisnick so I'd think they'd be more interested in guys like Chapman, Stephenson, and Frazier than they would in Hamilton.

    A million times yes. Id drive Billy down to Miami myself if that's what it took...and I'd leave my car with Loria, too.

    Drive? Hell, I'd carry Hamilton on my back if that's what it took to get Stanton.

    Hamilton + Chapman + Lutz? gets it done.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    I have heard rumors through the scouting grapevine. It would take every bit of that to even begin talking.

    I said last year I'd trade 2 Chapmans for Stanton.

    I'd trade 3 Hamiltons for Stanton.

    17 for 17 on the Yes votes. This is an easy question. A better one would be Votto or Bruce for Stanton. That might yield some interesting results.

    Reports are that Selig would likely veto a Stanton trade after the last boondoggle.

    Re: Poll: Would you trade Hamilton for Stanton?

    Stanton is one probably one of the top 5 most valuable trade assets in baseball right now. 3 years of control of a 22 year old.

    Consider, through his first 3 seasons, he's basically been just as productive as Ryan Braun was, but he's 3 years younger. There is nobody on the Reds save perhaps Cueto and Latos that I wouldn't trade for Giancarlo Stanton -- and even then I'd think about it.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I think 3 of the 4 would keep them on the phone. But wouldn't be at all surprised if it took all 4 to get it done.

    If I were the Reds, I'd be pitching Chapman and Hamilton for Stanton today.

    I'd offer Chapman, Leake, Mez, and Corcino.

    Re: Poll: Would you trade Hamilton for Stanton?

    Well, I am going to vote yes, even though I was tempted to say no.

    No question Stanton is 99.9% more likely to be the more productive player. So from a value point, you can't say no.

    Man though, I really want to see Billy sink or swim in Cincinati though. I am more excited about him coming up than any other player ever (even Chapman).
    The only one that even comes close in anticipation was Eric Davis (because the team was so bad then and needed a savior desperately)..
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
