Why? Before the season started, Reddick was projecting to be a backup and nothing more for that team. The multiple injuries they had at the position aside, you always move a spare part to fill a gaping hole. Just because the guy went on to have a decent HR total, and Bailey got hurt, it doesn't mean they wouldn't make that trade every time.
If you want to be critical of them on the deal, I'd say it would be more logical to give them crap for thinking a that guy like Bailey (with his injury history) would stay healthy. Not for them moving Reddick, since he wasn't going to start on that team.
