4. Sign shortstop Alex Gonzalez as a free agent.
As for the 2007, Sanchez and Bailey both could crack the rotation sometime during the year. Rodney gives the Reds a closer and is a better option than what is on the free agent market.
Catalanotto is more of a contact hitter that Krivsky is striving. At GAB, he will hit some home runs but it is putting the ball in play instead of striking out that Krivsky wants.
Shifting Griffey to RF might be better on his legs but everyone knows that is the best thing for his career.
Gonzalez is the best defensive shortstop on the market and we all know how Krivsky is out to improve the defense.
So now you have the catchers, Hat, Phillips, Gonzalez, EE, Cat, Deno and Griffey. Good luck trying to score 650 runs with that.
For that team to win the slogan should be Spahn and Sain and pray for Walter Johnson and Christy Mathewson.
