What he said.
I like Millwood, and wanted the Reds to go after him last year. But with the season he had last year (not to mention he lead the AL in ERA but didn't win a lot of games - Dan O will rightfully assume this means Millwood doesn't "know" how to win - and yes, this is sarcasm here) he is going to command some serious coin right now. If the Reds can wait it out and can get him for a reasonable amount in late Jan/early Feb thats what they need to do.
