I'm not sure what they'd have to give up but a big bat in the middle would sure be nice.
Cincinnati 4, Colorado 1 Reds win series 2-1 which isn't bad with Colorado leading the majors with a 17-8 record since mid April. Chapman strikes out the side in his first 2014 appearance which is for a save. Standings remain Milwaukee in 1st, Cardinals 5 back and Reds 6 back as all 3 won on Sunday.
Homer Bailey goes 7.1 solid innings, Todd Frazier goes deep, and Aroldis Chapman picks up the save in his return to the mound as Reds top Rockies. Recap: atmlb.com/1l8Lq0x

A good day for the Reds. The Giants sure didn't look like the best team in baseball tonight. St.Louis lost to Kanasas City. Minnesota leads Milwaukee 6-2 in the middle of the 8th inning.
Reds beat sloppy Giants 8-3 for 4th straight win By JOE KAY (AP Baseball Writer)18 minutes agoAP - Sports
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Devin Mesoraco hit a two-run homer and Jay Bruce emerged from a slump by driving in a pair of runs on Tuesday night, leading the Cincinnati Reds to their season-high fourth win in a row, an 8-3 victory over the sloppy San Francisco Giants. Mesoraco hit his ninth homer off Tim Lincecum (4-5), who has beaten the Reds during the playoffs but never during the regular season. Bruce, who spent time on the disabled list following surgery for torn knee cartilage, knocked in his first run since April 25.
Homer Bailey (6-3) went six innings in his first game against the Giants since his no-hitter against them last July 2 at Great American Ball Park. The right-hander gave up three runs and five hits, including Hunter Pence's homer, double and single.
The Giants have the majors' best record at 37-21, but were undone by a season-high four errors. Lincecum had a throwing error, and catcher Hector Sanchez threw two balls into center field on steal attempts.
The Reds have dominated the Giants during the regular season in recent years, winning nine of 11 since 2012. San Francisco got the best of the series that mattered most, taking three of five from the Reds in the 2012 division series and going on to win the World Series.
Cincinnati won this one with a pair of big innings. The Reds scored four times in both the first and fifth innings, matching the most runs that the Giants have allowed in an inning this season.
When Bailey threw his second no-hitter against the Giants last July, the opposing pitcher was Lincecum, who threw his own no-hitter 11 days later at San Diego.
Lincecum had a rough time in the rematch, matching his career high by giving up eight runs in only 4 1-3 innings. Bruce doubled home a run in the first inning for his 500th career RBI, and Mesoraco homered for a 4-0 lead.
Brandon Phillips doubled home two more runs in the fifth, and Bruce had an RBI single as the Reds pulled ahead 8-3. Bruce missed two weeks following knee surgery and was only 4 for 30 in his previous eight games back.
Lincecum is 0-4 with a 9.79 ERA in six career starts against the Reds, the only NL team he hasn't beaten during the regular season. He won Game 4 in Cincinnati during the 2012 division series.
