    Just to show what kind of value this represents, check out this hypothetical trade that the author of Red Reporter was willing to make:

    A great question that should be asked of a lot of players across the board.

    That's the lineup I would expect, with Mes getting an increasing share of the catching duties.

    Re: Shin-soo Choo?

    Outside of Danny Graves, would Choo be the first Asian player in Reds history?

    Choo for Didi and Stubbs is a steal for the Reds. An absolute robbery, if true.

    Boy, I go out for 45 minutes and all hell breaks loose.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Yep my productivity just died with this rumor. Choo or Bruce's defense in center is an absolute question mark, but that bat would be monumental to the lineup. I like Gregorius, but honestly I'm okay with selling him off and sticking with Cozart. Cozart's at the very least a great glove we can hide towards the bottom of the order.

    Much better hitter, more power potential, better defensively, better speed and a better arm. So he is just like Paul Janish, but better at everything across the board than him.

    Starting to sound like this would be basically be step 1 in a 3 way trade with Arizona, with perhaps both Stubbs and Didi going to Arizona.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    If that's the case I'd rather just get Upton for ourselves.

    I think A.Cabrera could be headed to Arizona, Upton to Texas, and Texas prospects to Cleveland. But that's just me.

    Why do you think this, Rick?
