Re: Rick Sweet on Francisco, Frazier and Valaika
So does anyone know who is going through arbritration after the season?
I've heard Micah Owings might have to go through it but do you really give him a raise after the season he had or do u just let him go?
I think you look at next years lineup looking like
1B Joey Votto-he's gonna stay there all year.Yonder isnt moving him
3B-Scott Rolen-Juan Francisco will eventually get more starts after Rolen is gone
LF Johnny Gomes-I think you give Yonder Alonso the shot to be Gomes out of the position during the year
CF-Drew Stubbs/Chris Dickerson
RF-Jay Bruce-the job is his no matter how bad he plays/Wladimir Balentien
C-Ryan Hanigan is the backup no matter what/Drop Tatum & Miller.Don't Pick up Hernandez's option/Acquire Doumit and Duke for Valaika, Maloney, and Bray
SS-This position is what is keeping the reds going any further in the division just like the starting pitchers/ I think the Reds sign a FA SS either Felipe Lopez or they acquire JJ Hardy or Yunel Escobar/Paul Janish will stay with the team for the bench
2B-Brandon Phillips is the 2B next year and beyond
As you can see i didn't really put any of this in order
