So, Redszone I present to you my annual slobber-knocker trade proposal. Let me know what you think:
Reds trade Chapman to the Kansas City Royals for OF prospect Wil Myers.
It is no secret that Kansas City is looking for frontline pitching and Chapman could be that guy. If you're the Reds, there will be a innings limit on Chapman for 2013 and no guarantee his success as a closer translate to a starting pitcher. The same could be said about Myers. But if he is the stud outfielder like the scouts say, the Reds could have an outfield of Myers, Hamilton and Bruce for the next six years. The Reds still have Mike Leake and Cingrani should be a candidate for a possible starting spot next season.
So if you were Jocketty, do you have the cajones to trade Chapman?
