In 5 seasons in Cincy, EE hit .262/ 71HR/ 263 RBI/ 364 strikeouts. Plus he couldn't play 3rd base and you have Joey Votto at first base since....so you're point?

I think the point is Edwin’s been pretty great since the Reds trades him.

And Scooter Gennett's been pretty great since the Brewers cut him...

Adam Duvall was traded for about 2 months worth of Mike Leake...Duvall's been pretty great as a Red...

Not sure why 14red is throwing a hissy fit that someone noted that Edwin has become an elite power hitter since leaving the reds.

I think the Reds knew they were trading away a potentially great power hitter in Edwin. And he has become that.

Edwin wasn't going to play 1B, he was balking at trying LF, and he was a moody kid. It was the right move at the time to trade him - and he lived up to his potential. It happens.

I think EE would have been a worse left fielder than a 3rd baseman. He is a first baseman and DH, and preferably a DH.

Good point. He’s probably not good enough to crack the Reds starting 8.

I was alive when Roberto played his last game with the Pirates. It was in 1972 and was game 5 and the deciding game of the Playoffs at Riverfront Stadium in October 1972. Johnny Bench homered in 9th to tie the game. I watched Roberto walk off the field as the Reds were celebrating a win as George Foster scored the winning run coming home from 3rd base on a wild pitch from Bob Moose. Have been a Pirate fan since 1965 when I was 10 years old and saw the Reds and Pirates play at Crosley Field. Roberto played that day also.
