Those are your parameters.. find me someone for about 1 million/year or less that's available right now and is better than Logan.
At this point, I'd guess you may find guys who have made a lot more than that in the past but are looking for work and may settle for that much. Some names on this year's list:
Jon Rauch, Kyle Farnsworth, Juan Carlos Oviedo, K-Rod, Brian Wilson, Matt Capps, Brandon Lyon, Rafael Perez, Manny Parra, Pedro Feliciano, Matt Lindstrom ...
There is a list like that every year at this time and while I have questions about Wilson, Capps and Lyon, I'd say the rest of the list would be an upgrade or at least a better fit.
On the Reds, three of Hoover, Cingrani, Leake, Masset, Ondrusek, Arredondo, and Simon won't make the opening day roster without the Reds adding anyone else. I'd rank Ondrusek dead last on that list in terms of talent and future value. Hard to imagine he's not one of the bottom three.
