Re: Cold reality check for remaining free agents, plus more notes
The Reds really need to jump in on this. If you think about it now is the time to go after a guy like Sheets on a long term deal. The market is depressed, but it’s not going to stay that way. What you sign Sheets, Wolf, or Perez for now is going to be a bargain two-three years down the road when the market corrects. Offer up something like 5 years 33-36 Million to Sheets and you've got yourself a relatively young quality 1 to 2 pitcher at a pretty great rate. Sure they would be up against the Cap wall this year, but a few years down the road, you’d be looking pretty good if that’s all you paid for a player with the talent of Sheets.
