You don't want to go out and give Hunter a 6 year deal when in his most profitable years 4,5,6 he is going to be on the downside of his career. I don't forsee Jones leaving the Braves but I would love to see him patrolling CF for the reds. The reds could go after Jones and give him a 5-6 year deal but that would signify not only the end of Dunn as a red but Jr would also have to be moved. But if you ask me I would much rather have an outfield of Bruce in LF, Jones in CF, and Hamilton in RF.
you can sign one, as long as you realize you are highly likely to overpay and are just as likely to get little to no production in the outyears.
CF is a really small problem in the Reds scheme of things. Pitching and catching look to be much more pressing issues.
