    Giancarlo Stanton

    I'm bored, and I saw them bantering about on the Sundeck what it would take to get him, and thought it might make for some interesting proposals.

    They think the conversation starts with Hamilton. I don't do the deal if it does.

    According to the Cincinnati Reds website, here are their top 20 prospects:

    1. Hamilton
    2. Stephenson
    3. Cingrani
    4. Corcino
    5. Gregorius
    6. Travieso
    7. Lamarre
    8. Lotzkar
    9. Soto, Neftali
    10. Wright, Ryan
    11. Buckley, Sean
    12. Greene, Brodie
    13. Romano, Sal
    14. Winker, Jesse
    15. Cisco, Drew
    16. Rodriguez, Henry
    17. Rosa, Gabriel
    18. Waldrop, Kyle
    19. Rodriguez, Yorman
    20. Garrett, Amir

    I'm surprised Donald Lutz isn't on there. But oh well.

    First off, I'd consider trading them Chapman, and not Hamilton. I'd love to not trade either. But if I trade them Chapman, then the rest of the compensation won't be that much.

    1. Offer them 1 of either Leake/Bailey. If they're trying to keep down payroll, they choose Leake.
    2. Ondrusek, Stubbs (throw-in).
    3. Stephenson, Corcino, Gregorius, Lamarre, Lotzkar, Soto, Lutz, Yorman Rodriguez, Juan Duran.

    Yeah, I forgot about Mez. I'd include him in the deal.

    Re: Giancarlo Stanton

    What if the Marlins would accept Chapman and Hamilton straight up for Stanton? Would you do that deal?

    Hamilton and Bailey as the centerpieces. Or Chapman alone as centerpiece.

    Otherwise it would be too easy for another team that wants him to top the Reds offer.

    If Stanton would extend right now, I would do that.

    My offer starts with Chapman and Hamilton.
    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.

    Stanton isn't worth that. He's good but that's a ransom.

    I really believe Chapman will be going somewhere.
    To the Reds starting rotation that is! LOL

    Re: Giancarlo Stanton

    I go back and forth. I really want to see Billy Hamilton play for the Reds. But if Hamilton and a couple of other good prospects could get Stanton, I'd really have to consider it.

    And if we could get Fowler to leadoff to go along with it.............I don't think I'd be too upset.

    I'd hesitate more about dealing Chapman than Hamilton, in general. But I would lose zero sleep about making either one the centerpiece for a Stanton deal. Both? I'd have to think about that for awhile...

    Um Stanton is a generational talent. He's definitely worth it. He's putting up Hank Aaron and Griffey Jr. numbers. You're telling me you wouldn't move heaven and earth to acquire either of them after they only spent two years I'm the majors?
