Re: FA OF options in 2011
Why do we even look at FA lists and look at the above-average to great players?
Do we REALLY think the Reds are going to be in serious contention for any of them?
The biggest splash we will make in FA next year will be IFF we decide to pick up Arroyo's option.
MAYBE a trade, maybe.
We don't sign top-tier FA's.
I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008
Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
