If we trade Price we need to get a high profile bat in here. The offense stinks out loud has been for awhile and "pitching and defense" can only hold up for so long.

The Reds were never trading Billy Hamilton. They let Shin Soo Choo walk in Free Agency with the plan of Hamilton filling his OF and leadoff position.

Hamilton had a 2013 season at Louisville that was, not bad by any means, but still below expectations. It was even being debated whether or not he needed another year in AAA, taking into account his switch from ss to cf. The Reds were still making qualifying offers for Choo in December, just prior to the winter meetings. The suggestion of a Price for Hamilton trade came up at the time of the meetings. Choo signed with the Rangers afterwards.
Rays receive: OF Oscar Taveras, RHP Carlos Martinez, CF Peter Bourjos and 2B Kolten Wong Cardinals receive: LHP David Price, 2B Ben Zobrist, CF Desmond Jennings and reliever Joel Peralta (the deal would be contingent on Price signing a five- or six-year extension with the Cardinals).
Some piss-poor bullpen management cost the team last night.Here's an update on for Ray catchers around the league:Oakland: Stephen Vogt - .366, 3 HR, and 13 RBI John Jaso - .269, 7 HR, and 27 RBITexas: Robison Chirinos - .251, 9 HR, and 27 RBI Chris Gimenez - .274, 0 HR, and 10 RBIToronto: Dioner Navarro - .262, 5 HR, and 36 RBICompare those to the $4M man in Molina: .187, 0 HR, and 3 RBI. And he's only thrown out 6 of 33 base runners, making his caught-stealing percentage even worse than is piss-poor average.
Chirinos is the one that really gets me. He's not just hitting well, he's thrown out an incredible number of baserunners, like 48% or something.
