Re: Who should we target?
Obtainable (in theory)

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 know 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 tis 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.
: Manny. Not obtainable:
Ryan Braun/Markalis. Realistic:
Center and short would still need to be addressed IMHO.
