    Have to admit, was getting excited for the signing and he see what he could do. Could have been a steal for CF....but this is coming from a guy that thinks Hamilton isn't close to being everyday guy out there because of his offense.

    I hope Walt still goes after another FA or makes some kind of trade for CF...

    Maybe a Homer multi year signing and Arroyo signing could free us up to trade Cueto...He's not going to get #1 SP caliber return because of his injuries...which has me convinced we've seen the best of Cueto already.

    Sizemore signs MLB deal with Redsox....less than 1 million guaranteed with bonuses go up to 6 million....

    I'd say that 6 million was the part of it that made Walt/Bob have to quit negotiating.

    So now the Reds are left hoping Alex Rios gets cut, or they could go after Granderson.

    Well then it seems the Reds are going to be left with hoping for some more cuts and picking over the scrap heap.

    Why would Alex Rios get cut?

    Rios makes $12.5M and hit 18 homeruns last year with 42 SBs and hit .278 with good defense. He is an elite outfielder.

    Maybe you are thinking of Vernon Wells, who did get cut. I think Wells could be good as long as he isn't expected to play all the time.

    I hate to be quibbling over semantics... but you and I have different definitions of 'elite'.
