Re: Free agents
I would go after Francisco Cordero, Eric Gagne, Scott Linebrink, and Mariano Rivera. They would be very expensive of course. These are the guys that every team will go after, which means they will end up in New York, Boston, Chicago or Los Angeles instead of Cincinnati.
I chose to only mention guys whose club's don't hold an option. If they are any good their club will pick up the option given how scarce quality pitching is around the league.
The list of free agents is not very good at all. It is depressing actually.
If anybody still thinks it might be a good idea to ditch Adam Dunn so we can spend his money on these chumps, you might want to reconsider.
