I have absolutely no idea what market there is going to be for Griffey or Dunn, so it's hard for me to say who I would be targeting. I just don't think I want to see the Reds lock up 20% of their payroll on one player. There are too many variables that can go bad.
Rich Hill has much better stuff than Bronson Arroyo my friend. Ask anyone who knows baseball. He has a top 3 pitch in all of baseball, and he throws at least as hard as Arroyo. Hence, much better stuff. And by the way, he's over three years younger and left-handed, something the Reds lack throughout the organization. Throw in the contract situation, and it's a no-brainer.
