A lot of talk about blockbuster trades on the horizon and the need to infuse this team with talent. Without getting into too much clutter regarding who goes and who stays, predict the newest high-profile Red that will be acquired this offseason.

I'll start: Anibal Sanchez

Anibal Sanchez, high profile? We know our Reds too well don't we?

I'll say our biggest acquisition is someone like Jamie Carroll or Mark Ellis. And he'll get to play like 110 games. And then Walt and Dusty at the end of next year get another extension.

I think I know our Reds well enough to know that if Dusty gets another extension, 365 days from now we'll be talking about setting the playoff rotation and roster instead of worrying about topics like the one in this thread.I'd be fine with that.

Would be an interesting acquisition if they trade Alonso (or Votto :eek:) for pitching. Would be much more likely if JimBo were still in charge.

There is history, well family history with Jocketty. Might be a good fit in LF.

I think I'd rather have the former Reds starting SS know as "Soft J" then the former AL MVP.

I'll predict the the Reds will shock the world and get Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran.That would only put the Reds payroll at around 120 million next year so yeah.

Only because I can't believe it hasn't already happened before now:

Juan Pierre.

Clint Barmes as our veteran SS.

In terms of adding a reliver, you could do a lot worse than bringing back Matt Belisle -- who finally turned in to the solid pitcher I always touted him as.

I've had the same thought. Not sure he'd be willing to sit almost full-time though. Jamey Carroll might be more willing to do that.

I think it would be positioned as (and would legitimately be) a shot at the starting gig.

Possibly. But I've heard Jocketty say Cozart is likely the guy. I doubt he'd backtrack and make it a wide open competition. I think they'll end up with someone a step down from Barmes, though I think he'd be a great add.

Interesting! Good outside-the-box thinking.

Yu Darvish.

Given how recent Japanese imports have fared, I'll pass (given his price).

Bautista for Votto may happen.
