    Reds didn’t get Villar, Gregorius, Galvis, or Semien, and now they’re almost out of options. This trade works out for both teams, seeing that the Indians still need an outfielder despite getting Eddie Rosario. This trade allows the Indians to get 4 people off their 40 man roster and partially solves their long term roster crunch that comes with having too many MIF prospects that are gonna arrive at the same time. They get Siani and Lodolo to account for the Rocchio and Allen throw-ins, and they put Morgan and Mejia in to get some 40 man space. Reds do this deal, get a short-term shortstop in Rosario, and then a future IF in Bracho who could join together with Jose Garcia to form a double-play tandem for years. They get Allen to help shore out their future rotation and their current rotation. Sure, Lodolo is a high price, but they have a lot of pitchers coming up that look pretty good, so they could exchange him for a guy they need. Thoughts?

  2. Big Bat

    Lodolo is to the Reds what Quantrill is to the Indians. Pretty much untouchable. Being a Cleveland fan I like the offer, and the Reds would be getting quality in return. I think Mejia is severely underrated and is close to, if not ready. Power arm with nasty sink. I think he is a Mahle type with better stuff. I see his stock rising dramatically by this time next year.

      I agree with all of that. Not to mention Bracho is among the best bats in the system, which the Indians desperately need to develop.

      Removing Lodolo, Bracho, Mejia, and Morgan from the deal and it still remains balanced, and looks fine imo. It doesn’t address next season’s roster crunch at all, but could do worse.
