But to get a higher profile pitcher the Reds will no doubt have to overpay for him. Oswalt & Saunders are about the only ones I could project as a #1-#2...mostly #2. Saunders had a solid ERA but also allowed 29 Homers.. He does however go the distance; logging 212 innings. Oswalt is a name the Reds fans know all to well. He had some injuries in 2011 that may hinder him but he is that big name that could put butts in seats.
