Well, I misunderstood that point. I thought the Reds already had him signed/under control for next year. I also wasn't operating under any delusion that he was the perfect option. There just don't appear to be any great options. For the most part, it seems the Reds are either going to have to pay a lot or trade a lot to get a CF option that has question marks to begin with.
