    While I see no reason to trade Reddick, I'm not a fan of his defense this year. He's been hitting this year to cover up that he's really slow now for a RF, and would be below average in speed for left. He still runs good routes, but considering Astros like the RF to shade towards CF...he's so far away from anything in the corner and can't get over to backup Yuli when McCullers fields a ball.

    Again only one I day has to go is Reddick.

    But if you wanna have some guys for the future and still compete the other two would be the key.

    Reddick has to go period.
    And ill give u my reason.
    He was the number one guy behind the walk out when they didn't play the A's.

    If you pay attention three CEOs of other teams have said and I QUOTE "we are losing money, for baking BLM. That has to stop. We can't justify it"
    Do you wanna be the guy who goes to his owner and says "um we lost 25million in less then a month because we backed BLM." WTH do you think that owner is gonna say since he is also losing money due to the pandemic?
    Js
    Politics need to stay out of sports and entertainment. If you do it on your own time then thats fine. But you can't tell me with a reasonable doubt that if you went to your boss and said "hey I'm not gonna work today. Because of social injustice" WTH do you think your boss is gonna tell you?
    Find another job that's what

    That is a reason to keep him so I stopped reading after that. I see no reason to trade a prospect to move Reddick's salary.

    I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for Reddick. I’d rather keep him through the end of this year (esp w/ all the funky injuries and overall weird year), than give him away for peanuts, which is likely all he would fetch given his contract. I honestly wouldn’t mind him back at a reasonable price assuming one (or both) of George/Brantley leave. Josh was the first player in a long time to choose HOU on the open market and he’s been nothing but an upstanding citizen and teammate while here.

    This is such a trash post.

    I was trying to be nice and let you have fun with the trade hypotheticals, because that seemed to be your jam. But now it comes to light that you had all of these terrible takes bourn out of political reasons, and a terrible political take at that?

    You say politics need to stay out of sports and entertainment, yet your political leaning is DRIVING your numerous trade posts? A bit hypocritical, no?

    Nope. There is no reason for what is happening. There should be playing and thats it. Do stuff on ur own time. Thats plain and simple.

    That’s a big haul to Cleveland for Clevinger, but for a deal involving a ToR SP it’s more quantity than quality. They got the Padres #7,9,11 prospects who are all really good since San Diego has one of the top systems in the league, but none of them are in the top 100. Hedges, Quantrill, and Naylor have all graduated from prospect status but all have extremely high ceilings; Hedges was a former Top 100 guy and 2nd round pick, while Quantrill and Naylor were 1st rounders.

    Overall Cleveland got 6 potential core pieces but zero likely stars. If Houston made a deal like that I would be happy given the state of their farm but usually going for quantity over quality is a bad idea.

    Definitely agree with your analysis here. The Indians are so good at developing pitchers. It's crazy how they have an endless supply of affordable guys who come up and excel.
