    What do you do if the Reds have a 2 game lead in the NL Central at the deadline?

    I get the impression that a lot of people are in the "trade him anyway" camp.

    This drives me crazy. Why in the world should the Reds trade their best pitcher? This kind of thinking drives me crazy. It's the same garbage when people want to trade Votto....why trade your best players???? You expect the Reds to suddenly get better as soon as they lose their 2 best players? When has that EVER worked????? Never.

    He's leaving after this season regardless. Trade him by the deadline and get some ML ready guys or lose him at season's end for a compensatory pick. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

    I wonder if the Dodgers would consider Seager, Urias, or Pederson for him?

    Cueto really did some work last night. Glad to see him get a W.

    Almost certainly not Pederson. They aren't going to create a hole in center field for a half season rental. Doubtful on Seager. They've got 3 infielders that will be free agents after this season, he'll have a starting spot next year. Urias is a possibility. If they'd have traded him last season when he would have been under team control for a year and a half they might have gotten someone like that now. With him being a half season rental they aren't getting 2-3 major league ready players. I'd say they'd be more likely to get someone like Zach Lee or Alex Guerrero.

    I think it depends on where he would get traded. A team like LA would be able to sign him long-term. May be willing to give up a little more to get the inside track on securing him long-term. Probably just wishful thinking on my part.

    Guerrero is older, but guy can rake at the dish. Wouldn't be a bad option.

    Another possibility with a Cueto trade would be to see if they could convince the other team to take Phillips' contract off their hands too.

    This is a long term move so no it won't make them better now. Do you think they have $200M in the budget to pay him? Need to restock this team with young guys that are cheap and under team control and develop them.

    This.

    It's why they need to move Cueto, Chapman, Phillips (if possible), and I'm starting to give up on Bruce. Restock the system, suck for a year or two, and then make a go at it.

    I think the time to trade Phillips contract is almost too late at this point. If they try to include him in the trade of Cueto then the return will be less. I'd say the Reds will just try to survive through the end of that putrid thing

    I think Cueto ends up in Boston next year as well
