4) Nicolino is the only particularly compelling talent headed to Miami. Alvarez kind of sucks. Escobar collapsed last season. Hechvarria looks like he's joining a long line of mirage players who only can hit while playing in Las Vegas. Marisnick is starting to look like a bit of a jeans model.
5) I'm with benihana, the Reds should make a move on Giancarlo immediately.
WEEI on now, they're giving Cherington credit for having the discipline not to do it.
