Re: Reds sign Wilson
Well, the good news is that this might keep Robertson out of the opening day rotation...
The bad news is that this might be as good as it gets. I find it hard to believe that DanO has much payflex left. My guess is we get a sub million dollar reliever or two, and DanO sleeps the rest of the winter. If DanO does have 5-10 million in payflex left, this signing is a crime, because with 8.5-13.5 million in payflex (add Wilson's money back in), we could get the ace we really need.
I'm kind of surprised that Wilson caved in to the Reds negotiation tactics though. He must've really wanted to come back. At least I figure there'd be a sucker out there to give him the 2 year 9 million he was asking for.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
