Agreed. Willingham would have been a nice addition, but not really a difference maker. He's about to be 30 and really has not had an above average season as a corner outfielder. I think he might turn out to be the next Kearns in Washington. Hermida on the other hand...
I would even like to see the Reds take a look at Uggla and move him to left. I was never impressed with Olsen, gave up a ton of homers and was whackjob off the field.
