    Get me Parra and I'd be happy.

    I am not really that familiar with the D'Backs. Why follow them after they dumped Wily Mo? Anyway would a Didi for Parra deal be fair? Overpay by the Reds? Can Parra play center regularly?

    It's an overpay, IMO.

    Parra plus Kubel for Leake and Gregorius might be interesting for both clubs.

    Parra CF
    Phillips 2B
    Votto 1B
    Bruce RF
    Frazier 3B
    Kubel LF
    Cozart SS
    Mesigan C

    That deal would make the team a bit lefty-heavy and may be susceptible to southpaw relievers, but a bench with Stubbs, Rolen, and Heisey would allow for easy substitutions who would rake as well.

    Probably be considered a steal by the Reds, a Gold Glove winning MLB outfielder for a prospect SS with a total of 8 big league games under his belt.

    The only 2 still available on the original list are Bogaerts and Gregorius.

    This is the same management that traded for Joe Saunders as a main piece in the Dan Haren deal because he was a "winner". So they have done crazier things...or has their management changed since then?

    Good point...

    Mo get on the phone and trade Daniel Descalso and Skip Schumaker for Upton!

    Actually in this case, it's not about Reds' fans overvaluing him. There continue to be many, many reports online about the Diamondbacks and a few other teams really liking Gregorius a ton. I don't think this has anything to do with Reds fans but rather what a few other organizations seem to think of him.

    Yeah, I honestly don't think many of us Reds fans rate Didi all that highly.

    Re: Gammons says Upton in mix if Gregorius is

    Getting to the point where I'd be satisfied with Parra or DeJesus to platoon w/Stubbs. Why do I get the feeling though that we will end up with Coco Crisp?

    Re: Gammons says Upton in mix if Gregorius is

    What about Leake, Stubbs and Gregorious for Upton? I'm sure someone already posted this on a thread somewhere, but do you think AZ bites for this offer?

    Nah. Stubbs doesn't really have any trade value. imo. Leake and Didi and you are still going to have to offer up probably 2 high level prospects.
