Re: Offseason extensions?
Bailey Latos Ludwick in that order. Wouldn't go more than 2 years (or $10-$12MM) with Ludwick.
If Bailey can perform in the postseason like he has the rest of the year, he may finally be the pitcher we always hoped he could be, and I'd get him locked up for the next 3 years. Latos will likely be an even better pitcher but we have more time with him already and his maturity issues could pose a risk under a long term deal. Still though, wouldn't mind keeping him in Cincy for the better part of the next decade. We know he'll be here at least the next three years.
Leake might be worth considering if we could "buy low" here, although he seems more replaceable- especially with Cingrani and Corcino knocking on the door.
