Also: The due date on the players with options -- Adam Dunn, Scott Hatteberg, Eddie Guardado, Javier Valentin -- is Nov. 4.

Baker was FedExed a package on Reds personnel. He's studying it.

"Most of that is Wayne's call," he said.

I imagine most of these will be pretty easy. Dunn will be picked up, as will Valentin and Hatteberg because the options are so cheap. I would be very surprised if the Reds picked up Guardado's option.

Dunn's a no-brainer. Do it yesterday.

Hatte should be picked up in the sense that either he or Votto is being shopped (you know how all these rumors and wild speculations take lives of their own). After all, there's something of a thin first baseman market now.

Javy's option is cheap and he proved to be most useful this year in more than a pinch-hitting role.

If Guardado would sign for less, I'd say decline it and ink a smaller deal.

Why couldn't somebody have stolen that FedEx package? I want to know what they know. None the less these are very easy decisions.
Dunn: Yes
Hatteberg: Yes
Valentin: Yes
Guardado: No
