My first thought is that Joey Votto for $12 is a serious bargain. I spend more than that at Skyline for meals sometimes.
For me, it will be interesting to see what happens with Arroyo. Does he want to finish his career as a Red? Does management have any interest in signing him if the price is reasonable? Or is management ready to move Leake into Arroyo's slot and bring up a Cingrani or someone else?
Bailey didn't want a multi-year this year. Either he thought he was going to have a great year and wanted to be able to charge more for 2014. Or he wants to keep his options open. One more arb and he's a free agent. Is he going to bolt for Texas? Will the Reds need to start looking to replace him or trade him?
Also curious when the new TV negotiations begin. They could really affect a lot of this.
I'd really love to sign Choo.
That's all for now.
