I have a theory that getting Didi would allow us to add a SS prospect to a Cabrera deal and get the 2 pitching prospects from the D'Backs that Antonetti has been pining for. Just a theory. We we can swing a Skaggs/Bauer/+ deal for Cabrera/SS prospect (Wolters?), you gotta do it. Maybe the Reds deal gives us flexibility to make it happen.
gregorius would be fine until lindor is ready. stubbs, well, he wasn't terrible in 2010. and that's about the best you can say for him. i'd much rather have a low-level starting pitcher with some potential.
Well, this would improve OF defense. I know little of Gregorius, but it could improve us defensively at SS too if he starts at SS in the wake of an Asdrubal Cabrera trade.
It really seems the Indians have been interested in getting some speed into the lineup. Victorino, Dee Gordon, and now Stubbs. I wonder if that's Francona's influence? Anyways, watching Reynolds and Stubbs strike out 30% of the time is going to be pretty frustrating.
