I have a hard time believing almost everybody else is wrong and the Reds scouts are right on this one. Grandal wants alot (reported 6 mill) of money to sign. The Reds know this and was said to be looking for a player at slot money. Grandal isn't going to sign for slot and the only thing that makes sense to me is the Reds are counting on this being the case. They have Chapman this year and two 1st round picks in a much better 2011 draft.
I don't know if I agree but you paint a compelling picture here.
