Why did the REDS trade Hamilton?

Anyway, Props to Josh Hamilton for being the ALCS MVP!

The Reds management has said in the past that the injuries had nothing to do with the trade, but I think it had something to do with it.
Plus, I'm 100% positive that in the back of everyone's head, they were all thinking that this guy is bound to break out and require a huge paycheck. Why not get something for him, before he bounces out of here.
Trade worked well for both teams, obviously better for the Rangers.

We could have had Votto, Hamilton, Phillips, and Rolen all in the same year. That probably would have pushed us further in the playoffs and maybe the WS this year. But there's no crying over spilt milk.
