The players that should be moved to free up cash would be Cordero & Taveras. I believe if the Reds were to pay half of their 2010 contracts that they could find a buyer perhaps. That could give them the money to resign Gomes, get a back up catcher, and perhaps get Cabrera. The team could be potent with a lone up like this:
That along with a new pitching coach and this team no doubt is improved from a year ago and possibly a contending ballclub. That is if the end of the season wasn't a fluke.
No club is stupid enough to take on Taveras........if the Reds paid 9/10 of his contract.
