Re: Which Free Agent Do You Sign?
At these prices, I agree Tomko provides the best risk/reward.
I had a thought though, what if you sign Tomko AND Benson? That would add $6-$12 Million in payroll which I admit may be a little much. Kind of a hedging strategy. Hopefully one of them pans out.
In doing so you have are retaining all of the young studs. The rotation would be:
Inevitably someone will go down with injury and you bring up one of the kids. This strategy allows the Reds to play for this year and 2009 and beyond.
Again, just a thought.
