Cinci could probably live with the trade too since they did deal from a position of strength but Grandal looks like he is going to be a stud (they probably wish they kept him) but Latos did help them get to the playoffs.
Also found that little nugget in the article. I can't imagine that's right... I mean those two proposals are beyond overpayments. If it is... Jesus. Thank god for not doing it.
I dont see a thing wrong with the Latos deal from the Reds pov.
Grandal is the only one who really projects into a above average player and they already had Mesoraco who was considered by scouts the better prospect. Latos is still only 24 years old and has room to even get better. I'f im the Reds I do that deal everyday of the week.
