Re: Centerfield 2013
Yes, definitely a fascinating market. When I think about it, I actually like the Reds' position here. Hamilton is a year away, and they have Stubbs/Heisey. They don't have to do anything, much less overpay. They've got some pitching surplus. It's a good position to be in.
Love the idea of Bourn on a one-year deal. Thing is, there will be teams willing to throw big money at him (and I don't think that was the case with Madson last year). I'm thinking the Cubs and the Rangers (even with Greinke) and the Mystery Team. Teams are dripping money these days.
Many options out there still, I figure. Reds can always pry Colby Rasmus or Bonifacio from the Blue Jays for not much, I figure. Or Crisp. Or De Aza. Or DeJesus. Or....
