I'll take half that bet. In fact I'll bet that Ortiz is actually worse than Acevedo alone.
As for the Ortiz or Hudson debate, if they're the same pitcher, why not have them both? If Hudson and Harrang are the two front runners for the rotation, then that keeps lesser lights from getting starts that will go to Ortiz.
2 of crap is crap. if the reds really wanted to shoot themselves in the foot, they'd have signed Lima too.
