    Ervin Santana?

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2014/0...medium=twitter

    After reading the original CBS article, I think it is 100% speculation. Latos is seemingly fine, but it would definitely not paint a rosy picture on the Homer Bailey negotiations if we are kicking the tires on Santana.

    I'm hoping we can lock up Bailey, and keep our pick.

    I don't see how the Reds have money for him, and I wouldn't want to risk it.

    I would have to think the Reds are one of those teams he mentions that want to get Santana only on the cheap. He will likely get a reasonable deal - maybe not what he thinks is reasonable but what you'd call cheap either. Heck the Royals will offer him that.
    No - I am not from State Farm!

    If I remember correctly, the Reds have to give up a pick in the draft to sign him. Given that, I think I'd lay off unless Walt already has a blockbuster on the table for another starter.

    No thanks too expensive (including giving up a DP)
    Bowled 9 300 games, semi-retired!

    Nothing like bowling a 300 game

    Santana had a bounce back season and i'm sure someone will pay him and I hope it's not the Reds!

    Talk about a bad fit! The last 3 years he's given up a ton of HR's while pitching in the caverns of Angels and KC's park s. Giving up 1.33 HR per 9 innings the last 3 years. Not to mention we'd have to overpay to get him.
