Who should we target?
After the discussion on Juan Rivera that many of us took part in I ask the following question that Cyclone put forth in that thread. Which COF is the best option for us to have a winning season? In order for that to happen we are gonna need a guy to play LF and OPS better than .850 and preferably much more. Now I know many would prefer a LHH to most of what's available RH however we all know that the organization is seemingly set on a RHH. So with that in mind I give you the options.
Now I would prefer we vote strictly on who is the best fit knowing all of the circumstances. But beggars can't be too choosy so I'll just lay out the best of the well known available to choose from. Pick one of these as the guy we should target and of course lay out whatever else you wish in your posts. One other thing I don't think it's quite fair to put anyone on this list that either isn't likely to post an .850 OPS, isn't RH or will be more expensive than 10-12 million tops which is right around what I think the Reds are looking for.
(I realize Abreu & Bradley are Switch Hitters but I think you get the idea) also take into consideration contracts, money etc.
