Re: 2012 Free Agents
I think one guy to keep in mind is Josh Johnson. He doesn't seem too likely, because he is in the 2nd year of a 4 year, $39 million deal. Almost $28 million of that comes over the last 2 years, however.
Keep in mind that the Marlins have never hesitated to trade any player, no matter how young or talented. If they have a bad enough season, I could see Johnson being available.
Whether the Reds would be interested in paying the steep price he'd command is another story altogether. Hopefully the staff performs well enough that adding a #1 guy isn't an issue.
I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.
