"Full judgment shouldnt be rendered until Opening Day. Unwise to assume he doesnt have a hat, and a rabbit. Offseason body language not good. Nice little moves that donít scare anybody. Is Walt on the hot seat? Should he be?

He does have sources inside the Reds. He was the first to report on Phillips. Who knows what the discussions were, but it's interesting that they have at least talked about Kemp considering how much money he is due.
