Re: Reds to sign Cuban OF Felix Perez
I think this guy is more of a cheap backfill for Dickerson. Likely makes his debut in 2011, he'll be under control and cheap through his prime while Dickerson becomes arb eligible and a non-tender candidate. Seems like a smart and cheap way to build a bench. Even if he ends up being no more than Dickerson II, its a good investment. If he's a bust, its not much more than a second rounder. The Reds waste more on guys like Cairo every year and if he becomes more than that its a good move.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
