Depends on if they're rebuilding/retooling or whatever, or if they're gonna 'go for it' next year again and think they can make the playoffs, I think.
If somebody wants to overpay for Reed's 39 saves and give up somebody who has a ceiling as an everyday player, I move him without hesitation. In fact, now that it's been brought up, I'm really hoping for a Reed trade to go with an Alexei trade.
Is there anybody who needs a SS and would upgrade at closer if they acquired Reed? Packaging both in the same deal might bring back something really good.
