Re: Reds in talks with Angel Pagan and Shane Victorino
No way Pagan fits into WJ's plan. This is just him playing the market. I could see Walt stealing Victorino on a one-year deal similar to the Madson signing last year, a value re-builder.
Ideally Walt finds a stop-gap CF for cheap (Crisp could be had for very little) and makes a bigger deal for a LF. There's enough in farm to get a Willingham or even Upton without completely draining the system. Choo could be had for less. And at the very least, he can wait out the market and sign a Ludwick/Ross type.
