Re: Reds Fantasy 2008: Your The GM!
No way I sign Randy Wolf. Always injured and out this season - you give him almost 10 million a year? Almost Eric Milton-esque.
I don't make many drastic moves. Get rid of Conine and Stanton this season for anything if possible. Let Hatteberg walk, take the draft picks. See if Votto is ready - maybe sign a veteran backup to a minor league deal as insurance. Sign Guardado to an incentive laden contract. If you can get something of good value for Dunn, trade him - otherwise pick up the option and get the draft picks after the year is up. Most importantly, get rid of Castro.
Rotation: Harang, Arroyo, Bailey, Lizard, Belisle/Livingston/Cueto/Dumatrait
Bullpen: Guardado, Weathers, Coutlangus, Bray, Salmon, McBeth, Coffey/odd man from rotation/minor league free agent
Starters: Valentin, Votto, Phillips, Gonzalez, Encarnacion, Griffey, Hamilton, Dunn
Bench: Freel, Hopper, Ross, Keppinger, Cantu/free agent
If Dunn is traded, put Freel in the outfield until Bruce is ready.
