I can see trading for an arm, but they gave up some serious prospects. I'm shocked they sent Grandal and Alonso, this leaves little trade bait in reserve.
The move won't hurt in the near term as Mesaroco probably had Grandal stymied for the catcher's position. Alonso can't field anything but first and Votto still has a couple years on his deal. Hopefully Francisco can stay healthy when old man Rolen takes his 40 game break and maybe they find a right-handed outfielder that can hit more than fast balls.
