Why (and I ask this seriously) would any of those guys want to hook up with the Reds at this point and time? They're rebuilding the left side of their infield, they don't have a large budget, they play in a division with 3 teams with bigger payrolls and 2 of them have really good starters.
Maybe someday, but the current state of the Reds (not to mention their history with Type A FA's) screams that this is all wishful thinking.
