View Full Version : Reds in on Dotel?

Saw in MLBTR that the reds are in on Octavio Dotel. A move of that nature would tell me that they are leaning to Masset, Bray, Boxberger, or one of the other in house options and he will be here as a back up plan just in case.

Wow, didn't the Reds try to trade Barry Larkin for Dotel back in, like, 1992 or something?

Dotel struck out almost twice as many batters per 9 as Cordero did last year, and had a FIP and xFIP almost a full run better than Cordero. He also wouldn't require the Reds to overpay for having accumulated a bunch of empty save stats. If the choice is Coco or Dotel, take Dotel every time.

Dotel i wouldn't look at as a THE GUY who is your closer he would be the 3rd or 4th guy in the line if the ones in front of him fail
