    Re: Rendon the Red: a case for why Bob, Dick, and Nick might pull the trigger

    I’d love to sign Rendon. In my mind he is the only true impact FA bat.
    The dream would be to move Suarez to short and live with it. Then you have
    Rendon at 3rd
    Votto 1st
    Suarez short
    Van Meter and Galvis at 2nd with Galvis getting starts at short
    If that doesn’t work then move Rendon to 2nd and hope the DH comes to national league soon
    That is a scary infield with a high ceiling outfield assuming Aquino is real and Senzel plays to what he can be after getting comfortable in center.

    Rendon won't happen because the Reds overvalue their players(see Winker-Peraza-Desclafani-Romano etc). Suarez hits pretty home runs but chokes in the clutch, so does Votto. Aquino is a flash player which the league will soon adjust to. (see Dietrich's big home run run, gone now because they just pitch him outside).

    I would not consider moving Suarez to SS....I personally think he would get eaten up if he tried to return to SS full-time. The only way I think the Reds should consider it would be if Rendon agreed to return to 2B, and I still would not be interested in Rendon at his likely required years.

    Yes what I'd really chokes in the clutch go away with all that nonsense

    Reds need to spend this off season, otherwise it's another 76 win season.

    Let’s hope for this. Regardless of whether it’s Rendon or another big bat, opening 1B up with the DH would be the best thing that could happen for the Reds situation with Votto. Not thrilled with Suarez at SS either.

    If Bob wants to win a bidding war and drop 30 mil per on a guy to try and win one, how about Spend it on Gerrit Cole instead?

    Recipe for disaster.....
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    And a waste of multiple top prospects

    I disagree. I doubt either is coming via free agency but I'd much rather spend on Cole than Rendon. Good pitching beats good hitting.

    The Reds have had excellent starting pitching this year. The problem is they couldn't score runs for weeks at a time and have had very poorly timed bullpen meltdowns.

    This is a playoff caliber rotation as is, the thing to fix is offense and bullpen. Whether or not Rendon would be a wise investment is up for debate but the fact that they need to upgrade on offense and bullpen is not.

    Put Gerrit Cole on this year's team and they still aren't in playoff contention. Go back and give them an offense during April and May and they very well might be.

    I think of the Reds had either Rendon or Cole they would definitely be a playoff team. Trust me, I would welcome either addition but personally think that Desclafani and Mahle are no sure thing. You have to actually get to the playoffs to throw your #1-3 pitchers in a playoff series. I just don't see them getting there with those two as the #4 and 5

    Bob, Dick and Nick. Doesn't that sum up the entire problem?

    Answer to problem: Hire a guy with experience who knows what he is doing. Give him unlimited authority and stay out of his way. Give him a reasonable budget. Make sure he is not anybody's relative and he never worked for any political party.

    Until you do that you are going to continue to lose 85-90 games a season.
