Both are DEFINITELY better than Maine. They will EASILY outproduce Maine who is one of the most overrated pitchers. That is a horrible trade.
I'm not defending the trade, but you can't say both are better than Maine. Billingsley is comparable, but Maine is definitely the safer pick, and there is no way you can say Reynolds is better than Maine let alone DEFINITELY better. I do think that Maine is the best player in the trade, he is definitely better than Reynolds, but I'd say he is only a tad better than Billingsley in a non-keeper.
