Not trying to be a jack a$$, so correct me if I am wrong on this.
He was more referring to offering him arbitration, he would obviously decline, and the Reds would then get compensatory draft picks for losing a free agent. Problem is, there is a big question mark about whether or not Lohse would fall into that type of free agent because of his horrible numbers last year and the process takes your last 3 seasons worth of stats.
