Can you imagine the Reds lineup in that small ballpark with a leadoff hitter who gets on 36-37% of the time (Span) AND adding Josh Willingham's right-handed bat between Joey Votto and Jay Bruce?! Not to mention Brandon Phillips.


Terrifying, to say the least.

Would I trade a guy that pitches 60 innings a year for starting shortstop? Is that a really hard question for some to answer? Why not? If they do not get 3 legit starters, what good is a relief pitcher? As for the larger trade, I read that Hamilton is just not an infielder.

I don't see the Reds going for this deal unless they think they have to win the World Series next season. Adding Carroll and Willingham isn't exactly planning for the future.

The main reason they decided to move Hamilton to the OF was because they have Cozart and Didi Gregorius.

I have read both things, so I have no idea what is true. Does not matter, they are not making this deal.
