    I think it’s a positive trade. I have seen some people say this could make the Reds a playoff contender but I am not so sure about that. I think the biggest thing is you get Bailey off the team and his contract off the books which was needed. In return, I am sure the Reds are hoping that Alex Wood can replicate what he did in 2017 where he was a really good starting pitcher. If he cannot and it’s likely he won’t, you still get a quality back end of the rotation pitcher that has proven he can get you 9 to 11 wins or give you some decent innings out of the bullpen.

    With Kemp, he is not the gold gove defender he once was but he still has some power in his bat. If he can stay healthy, he is probably a 20 plus HR, 80 plus RBI guy playing at GABP. Could be a good bat to hit behind Votto.

    Puig is the interesting player. He has all the tools to be a great player but has never quite lived up to expectations. He will at least add some entertainment value to the Reds. If he gets off to a really hot start, the Reds should be able to flip him at the trade deadline for a decent prospect. If he has a good year and leaves at the end of the year, the Reds could get a comp pick out of it.

    but why would a team who was just in the World Series give up those three players?

    Clearing under the tax to make a run at Bryce Harper. This is an nba style cap move and the Reds s, for once, are smartly benefiting.

    Reds just traded for Sonny Gray and singed him to 3 year extension plus club option for 4th year.

    Traded one of my favorite prospects. Was going to probably end up being blocked by Senzel though. Pretty meh on Gray. At least they’re trying though.
