Krivsky won't say much about the Reds' free agent activity, except "there are still some serviceable guys out there."
Two who could fit into the Reds' plans are pitchers Dan Kolb and Tony Armas. Krivsky wouldn't say whether either is on the Reds' list.
that article was a bunch of tripe...
here's some gems:
*********The problem with moving center fielder Ken Griffey Jr. to right field is the injury history of Ryan Freel, his prospective replacement......If Freel's out of the lineup, the best choice to put in the outfield is Jeff Conine....*************
right because Denorfia has retired.... Not only is he obviously better defensively than Conine, but Pecota projects his bat to be much more productive. Frankly, it shouldn't be assumed Freel is a better option in CF than Denorfia...
********When looking at last season's big trade between the Nationals and the Reds, do so as if Gonzalez came to Cincinnati in the deal as well. Why? Austin Kearns is asking for $4.25 million in arbitration from the Nationals, who offered $3.65 million, and Felipe Lopez is asking for $4.1 million and was offered $3.7 million.
If they still were on Cincinnati's roster, the Reds would not have had the money to sign Gonzalez.*********
Call me silly, but if they were still on the roster, the Reds would't have needed Gonzo....
