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.
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 bringing winning baseball back to Cincy
Nov. 13, 2007: One of the greatest days in Reds history: John Allen gets the boot!
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.
The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. -- Terrance Mann (Field of Dreams)
