If somebody offered me a big return, yeah, I'd trade Reed. But I wouldn't actively try to move him. The guys with salaries are the ones that need to go first.
Reed's status as the closer on the team is beside the point.
Yea but Reed is the guy who can get you the most value in terms of prospects because he is young and cheap. Not as many teams are going to want to get those expensive veterans and they certainly won't be willing to give up much for them.
