I think the Reds need to get rid of some out field with Winker coming up and I don't think they will trade Hamilton.

Reds get: Danny Salazar
Indians get: Scott Schebler

Schebler had a strong year last year and the time to cash in on him is now. Salazar was hurt parts of last year and is primed for a bounce back.

The Indians don't need another LHH outfielder who barely cracked .300 OBP while striking out a fourth of the time and playing, at best, average defense. Not for a guy who can be a # 3 SP. and better when he's on.

Change out Shebler for Duvall (they're essentially the same player. one's a RHH, the other a LHH, both are average defenders. etc. ) and make the deal all about the addition of Raisel Iglesias (the Indians would be required to add, as well), then, perhaps a deal can be cobbled together.

Reds get: Yellich
Marlins get: Winker, Amir Garret, Robert Stephenson. They could also put in schebler to sweeten the deal, I think he is going to fall off though.


Reds get an OBP machine to put ahead of Votto for the next 5 years at a contract that they can even afford. The marlins get an immediate replacement in Winker and two MLB ready pitchers with very high upside.

That's not terrible, but I think the Marlins are going to want to be blown away for Yelich. This seems like it would be the exact kind of package the Pirates are looking for in return for their players though. It might be too much, but they could probably knock one of those pitchers off the trade and make it work out.

I know there are no signs the Pirates would trade him but they might as well go full rebuild. What about Schebler, Stephenson, Garret for Marte?

Not terrible, but I think that package would be topped by multiple teams. The Reds have a solid farm, but I don't think they are in the position to get in a bidding war with prospects.

I don't know how many teams would be jumping to beat that deal right now. PED suspensions hang heavy, and I think I'd need to see another year of his normal production before I'm throwing too much to Pitt. If a team like the Reds really wants him, you're in the perfect buy low scenario.

The problem with the reds front office is that they overvalue some of these overhyped prospects. The time to cash in on some of them is now, I think they are one good hitter with a OBP over 360 and a decent starting pitcher away from contending in the central. I know the chances of them trading for one of those guys and signing a guy like Lynn or Cobb are not good but I think that's all they would need.
