Re: Reds Sign LHP Manny Parra, DFA Todd Redmond
Any reliever (aside from Broxton) should be available-- and the only reason he's not available is that he just signed a deal to stay here, and it'd be bad form to deal him before the season. (Marshall would be in the same boat, were he not dealt for something ridiculous.)
Relievers are too violatile. And the Reds have a ton of them.
That said, there are some-- Hoover, the aforementioned Marshall-- that I'd be reluctant to deal.
