Here's something to debate II
Given the absence of Reds news, I thought I'd start another debate. As Josh Beckett continues to dominate in the postseason, remember Boston gave up Hanley Ramirez to get him.
So would you give up Jay Bruce and say, Johnny Cueto, to get a Beckett type? Poster Jeff suggested trading Bruce and Josh Hamilton. If you could get Beckett, wouldn't you? I don't think there are any Becketts out there. But the point is you've got to give up a lot to get a lot. Giving up Ramirez was a huge risk. Beckett had a plus-5.00 ERA last year and Ramirez was rookie of the year. But it worked out -- for both teams.
