Re: Can the Reds attract free agents?
I think Walt has established the MO for the Reds.
Have a strong farm system, lock up your stars that make it, add top tier talent through leveraging your farm via trades, and augment the 25 man roster through acquisition of second tier free agents.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
