    The Reds are just going to have to get with the times. Mike Napoli just signed a two year $32 million contract to go back to the Red Sox. $15 million a year for a veteran starter isn't going to be cheap.

    Pass on Kubel, if anything give Nelson Cruz a shot and put in a clause that if he gets suspended again he has to give back all of his signing bonus and any future earnings if the Reds release him.

    I'm not saying they won't ever sign a free agent for $15M annually or that it won't happen this offseason. However, I would consider it highly unlikely this year.

    I don't think you can write a contract like that. You can make it a low base and all incentives but you can't demand money back for any reason, be it PEDs, a player's weight, etc.
    They don't think it be like it is but it do.
