Would you make the deal?
The Reds beat the Giants 10-1.
Edinson Volquez went seven innings. He gave up the one run on five hits, walked three and struck 10.
So the question of the day is this: Would you make the Josh Hamilton-Volquez trade again?
Volquez is 4-0 with 1.23 ERA -- 29 1/3 innings, 20 hits, 16 walks, 33 strikeouts.
Hamilton is hitting .333 with 5 home runs and 27 RBI.
Volquez is 24. Hamilton is 27.
I'm talking about the deal that was made -- Hamilton for Volquez and Danny Herrera. The Reds had to give up Hamilton to get Volquez. The Ranger would not have givn him up for Adam Dunn or Edwin Encarnacion or anyone else.
So would you do it?
