    Reds Offseason Rumors Thread

    Kind of a clearing house for all the times our Redlegs are specifically mentioned as being "interested" in a player.

    Robinson Chirinos' market is already active this winter. In addition to the Mets (1st reported by @KenDavidoff), the Astros, Reds and Rangers are among teams that have shown interest in the 35-year-old catcher, per sources. Chirinos has hit 52 HR in 315 G since the start of 2017.

    Don’t know if this is posted yet but Reds have traded for Jose De Leon.

    Another article wanting the Reds to give Castillo to the Yankees.

    *looks closely* I don't see Gleyber Torres' name anywhere. The article is a joke.

    I agree. Seems awfully lite in the britches to me.

    Yankee fans and writers are just terrible at overvaluing their players. They expect to get the best player on other teams for their trash. Both do not look at the needs and plans of the other team when proposing their nonsense.

    If the Yankees want Castillo, their farm system is gonna see some devastation. Garcia's got gaudy K number, but a 4+ BB/9 and I don't trust 5-9/163lb starters. Frazier \could be OK for the #2 piece, but not as enamored of him as I was. Open the discussion with Gleyber Torres and we might start to talk.

    I'd want Jason Dominguez in any deal like that.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    An Ace level-starter is the toughest commodity to acquire (especially for the Reds organization and especially one that is homegrown). For the Reds to possess one (one with ample remaining control) and even muse about dealing them before they have seriously investigating a contract extension is ridiculous. Even if they dared to consider such an act and didn't demand a haul that made there trade partner squeal in agony would be even more ludicrous.

    Another absurdity about dealing Castillo is that they have to have someone exactly like him in return to fill his gaping hole in the rotation.

    I think any talk of trading Castillo can almost certainly be shelved, no matter what ideas an MLB.com writer is throwing out there. It's pretty clear that at this juncture the Reds aren't looking to sell off pieces for prospects, let alone their most valuable piece.

    Well we gave them Chapman for next to nothing. Why shouldn't they expect similar stupidity on our part regarding Castillo?
