Any interest in any of these guys? Could Frank Thomas compete with Ward for that pinch hitter with pop role (plus could get some ab's against lefties)? If Mulder would be willing to take the min. and start in AAA would you take a chance? Chad Cordero? He could be usefull, it's too bad the reds signed weathers as I'd rather have chad. Juan Cruz? Not until after the draft as you'd have to give up picks.

Nomar? Could be another bench option, and insurance incase EE or Joey get hurt.

The budget wouldn't allow for most of those guys. Not Fringe enough.

Semi-surprised, though, that Walt didn't go after Edmonds.

I'd like Juan Cruz, even if we had to give up a draft pick to get him.

Many will retire.

Some may wait to see if a team has a need for them mid-season due to an injury.

If Frank Thomas does retire I wonder if we'll see him, Kent, and Maddux all elected to the HOF on the 1st ballot in the same year. I'd vote for the Big Hurt but the dropoff in his mid 30's (partly injuries) and the fact he was a dh will probably hurt his chances.

I would assume that is coming from a Baltimore fan and they are talking about signing and trading Brian Roberts.

this question is obviously hypothetical. But, if you had 10 mill to spend for 1 year of service; would u rather have adam dunn or MIlton Bradley?

Adam Dunn

Adam Dunn

Me too. If you had told me, 3 months ago, than the greatest RH hitter of all time would be without a team come S.T., and that Dunn and Bradley would make the same amount per year...i would have called you crazy.

Honestly, Manny would pay for himself if the Reds signed him.

Ben Sheets!!

Sheets is hurt that is why the Rangers voided a 2 year deal with him.

He's an ugly, bearded, mini-sasquatch with the windup of a 1890's softball player.
