Funny I just came here to post the two most realistic MI targets I could see for the Reds are Cabrera and Ramirez and I was beaten to the punch. Both are similar type players who can play both middle infield positions, are overpaid but don't have long term contracts.
While Id prefer the Reds to strike a deal with the Cubs, Rangers or Red Sox for one of the young major league ready prospects, one of these two would be a more realistic consolation prize. If their old teams picked up the salary difference, I wonder what it would cost the Reds to acquire them? Which one would people prefer?
