Re: Off Season Rumor/ News thread- not for discussion
Jim Duquette of MLB.com hears that Ryan Ludwick is looking for a two-year, $14 million deal.
It's a reasonable expectation after he batted .275/.346/.531 with 26 home runs this past season while making just $2.5 million. The Reds would like to retain him, but they could have some competition. The Mets and Mariners are showing interest.
"I have just been more than a little suspect of all the trades since the Willy (Scott Williamson) cash grab. That one left such a bad taste in my mouth that even a 1985 Dom Pérignon couldn't cleanse it." -- Creek14
