Re: Should Reds sign Kearns to a Baldelli type deal?
if kearns shows commitment to keep in shape and do things to improve his game, then yeah, but i think it is early now for a contract like that... unfortunately for kearns he has had injuries that have set him back but he is still young and has very good upside.... i would like to see him have a solid, consistent season under his belt before i sign him to a contract longer than 1 year, not because i don't think he will be good, but i just want to make sure last year was a fluke... i like austin and think he will make a very fine player, so i hope for the best for him... if you remember though, when he and Dunn were coming up through the ranks, kearns was said to be the better player, right now i think he's a little behind, but with his consistent batting and solid defense, he should be very valuable.
