Unique Reds Trades

Pitcher Daryll Thompson, who some Reds fans latched onto as potential savior, only to find him wanting. The Reds also got Royce Clayton and Brendan Harris and gave up Ryan Wagner, who obviously disappointed in Washington.

 

Who did they get for those 3? This could go on and on.

 

It's hard to evaluate a trade without following all of the transactions.

Still too early for me to say either way. I'm hoping for more out of EV.

 

At the time the Reds made the deal I would have done it if I were the Reds, but if they could trade back right now I'd take Hamilton in a heart beat.

They both got what they wanted out of that deal. There is more to meets the eye than just a player for player swap.

 

Yeah Phillips was a cry baby and hated that Hamilton was better than him and got "special" attention.

It wasn't just Phillips. Next year when Volquez wins 15 games and Hamilton only plays in 100 because he gets hurt how will you feel?

 

Didn't people use that "he won't play many games next year " line last year?

 

140 games later?

Volquez was a stud for one half of one year. Plus he hasn't exactly played 3 full seasons since he's been a Red.

 

17 wins in 09 was impressive. If he can match that for the next couple of years it will have been a good trade for both.
