The Tigers picked up the 2008 option for Ivan Rodriguez.

Some RedsZoners wanted us to go out and get him via FA after we either let Adam Dunn walk, or picked up Dunn's option to then trade him.

Looks like we can put that fantasy to bed.

Catchers we have right now are adequate, best to spend that money elsewhere

5 walks in 502 ab's... 3 years of OB% of .315, .300 and .290. Makes 10.5 million a year and turns 36 this fall.

Seems like the Reds are getting that for a lot less.

how about Jorge Posada? He'll be out there, especially if Torre is shown the door.

What I want to know is why in the world would you pick up that option? Is his defense behind the plate worth that much? I can't imagine that it is....

He'll get 10million plus from some team, no thanks.

Catch-and-throw guys with a little bit of pop are fine by me.
