I think Garza is more likely than Shields. Remember, the Reds were interested in Garza before he got hurt last year.
Garza and Soriano? Yeah, that's probably a pipe dream.
Too much bad blood between the Reds and Garza for him to don a Cincinnati uniform, plus I don't think he's a particular upgrade over any of our starting pitchers anyway.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
I think Garza would be happy to get out of that situation in Chicago, though he'd only be jumping from fourth to third place.
Also, I think Profar is more of a long term investment. All signs say he will be a good SS, but this year, I'm not sure if he's worth significantly more than Cozart.
If we're going to get a bat, I'd rather get a LF than Profar (considering what Profar would cost)
My dream list would be a LF and another solid pitcher (either starter or reliever)
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

I know it's a long-shot, but I, for one, would love to see the Reds acquire Jimmy Rollins. The Phils could toss in Michael Young too and the Reds could move Frazier to LF.
Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg
