    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    In the Twitterverse there is some mention of the Braves and Fowler. Delgado or Minor possibly being dangled as trade bait.

    If the Rockies want "at least two more prospects," they better be some C-level prospects. I could see the Reds throwing in Lotzkar and possibly a rookie or A-ball pitcher.

    Denard Span is under contract through 2014, with a club option for 2015. Dexter Fowler is arb eligible for three more years, so the return should be pretty comparable between the two. The Nationals gave up their #1 pitching prospect who was in A-ball last year. Considering the Rockies would be getting a middle of the rotation starter in Leake, they can't expect too much more.

    BINGO.

    In fact, the market demands that it should'nt even take anymore players than Leake... I think the Phillies WAY over paid for Revere... After what the Nationals gave up for Span...

    Regardless of our differences on De Aza we agree on this for sure

    Re: Dexter Fowler

    Clearly, the Rockies have overvalued Fowler. His home/ road splits over his entire career would scare me off if I was a G.M. especially for what they are asking. The guy's career batting average and run production are all substantially lower on the road.
