Cingrani for Rosario

With the Rockies signing Hundley to a two year six million dollar contract, its seems to me that Willan Rosario days in a Rockies uniform are numbered. The fact that his defense is suspect and he is arbitration eligible, a trade to the American league makes a lot of sense,

With Rosario in the last year of a long term contract.  i took a flyer on Rosario and traded him.  In return, YaGottaBelieve acquired Tony Cingrani who has an option for a long term contact. As a result, he will be priced at either $10 or $15 in the upcoming season.

That trade now gives YGB two starters from the Reds on its active roster with $27 Bailey and $10 Cingrani. In addition, YGB has two relievers in Rosenthal $7, and $10 Mejia.

After seeing Giancarlo Stanton getting this mega long term contract from the Marlins, it made me come to a conclusion that every team needs that one key player in which you build a staff around.  We are not asking this “franchise” player to assume this role within the organization right from the start. As time goes by, this player demonstrates not only is he the one that the other team must prepare for, and worries about.

In thinking about this, my fantasy team should also have a superstar to build a team around.  Who would that player be for me?
