Re: Reds sign Wilson
I felt better at this time last year. Wilson wasn't the "big signing" then, Claussen seemed close, the market was down and we had a bit of cash (which we subsequently blew on Cory Lidle), and we seemed to have a chance at a closer with Reitsma/Wagner.
this year, we have a bit of cash but the market is way up, we know more about Claussen, and there's no hope for a closer.
one hope to compete is to rush the young arms. There's more of 'em, and Ellis is gone. Still, we've been down THAT road before.
a better idea is probably to trade the kid arms. But I don't think that DanO can do it.
