    I like the trade but I think a few people are selling Didi short. He's a legit top 100 prospect with great tools. There isn't much more valuable in the post steroid era than a shortstop with a high ceiling.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    So far, his production translates to be a league average offensive shortstop. Average is as average does :0)

    I love it. But I will give some of our fellow RedsZoners credit. I heard Choo brought up many times as a possible legit trade option for the Reds by posters on here. I basically discounted said talk. I was wrong ... and happy to be so.

    Three-team trade, per source, will look like this: Choo, Jason Donald to #Reds, Gregorius to #Diamondbacks, Stubbs, AZ pitcher to #Indians.

    Corbin, Skaggs and Bauer were among #Diamondbacks pitchers who were in play. #Indians would get one in this deal; Skaggs unlikely.

    Nice. Donald will be an improvement over Valdez as the backup middle infielder.

    It will be interesting to see if they get the 2011 Donald or the 2012 Donald. If he plays more like the 2011 Donald, it's a total steal. I suppose it's more likely he'll be the 2010 Donald, which splits the difference.

    For what it's worth, Donald is also a Boras client...

    Donald hit .202/.246/.282 with Indians and .277/.365/.441 in AAA. Could fill utility role. #reds

    Re: Shin-soo Choo?

    If it's Bauer or Skaggs, I may have preferred to have acquire the AZ pitcher directly for DiDi.

    If it's Corbin, I think it's a very good trade for all three teams.

    Donald was a guy the Reds were talking about acquiring from Philly back at the 09 deadline when he was a prospect. Instead the Indians acquired him in the Cliff Lee package. Probably delays Henry Rodriguez's big league debut.
