    Reds and Dodgers Agreed to a “Significant trade”

    Announcements coming out now but it looks like the Reds get Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig and Alex Wood.

    Homer is going to LA. Not sure who else is going with him yet.

    To LAD: Bailey, RHP Josiah Gray, INF Jeter Downs.

    That’s adding a lot of salary, but none of it is long term. I like the deal. Let’s hope another SP is in the works.

    Downs was Reds 8th ranked prospect and Grady would be top 15.

    Wonder if Schebler will be traded now. Love the deal by the way.

    I honestly thought it was a joke when I first saw it on Twitter.

    Still wondering whether this is all an elaborate hoax perpetrated by the dastardly HammerTime.

    5 mill buyout + 25 mill contract only will equal 17.5 in luxury tax liability.
