I've heard 4-years $75 million as a starting point for Sheets.
I've said before that salary expectation on RedZone are too low. When I saw rumors like these that are starting to get confirmed, that's when I knew the FA market was going to be bad this offseason.
Great post... I would love to see the Reds lay low in the FA market and try to improve the team through trades and player development. The market is crazy, hopefully Big Bob doesn't overpay for marginal players.
