If he's only looking for a 2-3 year deal, I think the Reds need to bring him back. You cannot have too much healthy MLB-level starting pitching. 2-3 years bridges the gap to Stephenson and (potentially) Corcino. If he'd take a 2yr/$20MM deal Id jump on it ASAP."There's obviously a limit to how long we can play this game, and we're all trying to maximize our opportunities as far as money. If it wasn't for the dollar bill, I know I would be in this uniform until the day I retire, because I know they enjoy what I do around here, and what I bring to the table on and off the field and inside the locker room. But at the end of the day, dollars and cents always weigh a little heavier than anything else in life, usually.
"If my price tag is a little bit too much or they feel like they don't want to give me more than a one-year deal here, then it's going to be very difficult, because it's probably going to be the last time I have an opportunity to go out and sign a multiyear deal with a ballclub."
