    From what I understand he and Gray are a few years away from making it to the Show....

    I think Senzel will be slow to impact in CF. They won't bring him up till June and even then, he hasn't proven he can play CF on the big stage. He also hasn't hit real big-league pitching yet. Schebler will be the OD starter unless they swing a deal. Trammell is 2 years out.

    Greene 19 years old. That's 2 more years at least.

    Puig gives Cincy another RH bat which they may not need every day. I don't see Kemp sticking around.

    Gray might end up in the Show. Downs is a middle infielder who is trying to be a slugger. We shall see on them.

    I can say that no team Harper has ever played on has won the W.S. or reached it.
    He makes a good team better and a mediocre team relevant. But at his age, he can easy roar back to being the premiere player everyone expects of him.

    Thank Goodness Homer is gone! What an albatross he was. Great day for the Reds!

    They already do. There issue last year was pitching, and Homer was NO HELP. So glad that he is gone, gone, gone!

    Great trade for both teams, although I like it a tad more for the Reds. Puig adds some star-power to an already productive lineup. Alex Wood easily becomes the Reds best starter. I'm guessing they look to dump Kemp in another trade. I know they're trying like hell to get Kluber, but I see it taking a prospect haul the Reds won't part with. Some ding-dongs on Twitter seem to think Kluber can be had for Senzel/Trammell, Winker/Schebler, and a mid-level prospect. Like hell.

    The Dodgers somehow clear $14M in this deal. Popular opinion is the move was made with Bryce Harper in mind. That's not true, but I do think Bryce ends up in LA regardless.

    The Dodgers obviously are afraid of winning.

    Probably true unless they throw some money at Wood, which is still not clearly a good idea. Puig adds a RH bat to the outfield and he will upgrade it defensively but I don't see the Reds signing him. I won't even discuss Kemp or Farmer, who may end up being the most useful of the bunch.

    This trade was ALL financial, nothing more. LA never needed Homer and they might see a use for the prospects. Prospects are always a good deal.

    Cincy needed to convince its owner and fans that it can make a trade. They bought 4 months of relevancy.

    Then again, you thought Chipper Jones only had 'reasonably good numbers,' so I don't think understanding stats is your thing...

    Yeah but both are also flippable assets right now.

    Yeah, I gotta admit I missed the boat on that one. Someone on this board a while was kind enough to set me straight though.
