From the Right side, a guy like Chris Young might bring back visions of Stubbs. He'd cover defensively, provide some power and hit against LHP. GABP may bring him back to a mid-.700s OPS instead of the guy he's been in Oakland's cavern. He's not terrible if he's not real expensive, but at $7 or $8 Million per season like the last couple years, has been a bad deal. He's not bad against LHP, I just wouldn't go much over $3 Million for a season of him.
That much more the scenario I expect if the Reds think they need a plan to ensure they are covered if BH isn't ready opening day.
