in fact, in spite of the sandbagging, I suspect that he'll be ready this year. In which case, it's unfortunate that the guy that you just might want to nontender has a guarantee for 2010. it cuts off that option. Kudos to EdE's agent.
at least the Reds can't figure out positions for either of 'em. Gold Glove incentive... I love it.
I like Frazier too, and the Reds' handling of him makes it less than clear he would ready for a full-time gig in 2010. Especially since they won't seem to find him a position. IF he really is ready this year, and EE has a good year, they could always deal EE.
