There are actually a number of interesting FA starters on the market this offseason who could be potential bargains either due to lousy 2013 performance (Roy Halladay, Josh Johnson, Dan Haren), age (Chris Carpenter, AJ Burnett) , or injury (Johan Santana, Colby Lewis). Still, I would expect the Reds to essentially stand pat with their starters.
You resign Arroyo to a 2 or 3 year deal, it's not rocket science. A Reds deal in the same ballpark as any other offer means he'll come back. A lot of this has to do with the 10/5 rule in Baseball and also it gives him the chance to go out a Red something he has spoken about before.
