    I'll reserve judgement until I see the final dollar amount.

    Wilson for 3.5 isn't sooooooooo bad, nor sooooooooo good. what's bad is that he'll be slotted number one in salary and in performance, then they'll eschew any attempt to pay a power pitcher if one becomes available.

    The only good news is that it's not a three year deal.

    Still..blah.

    Think the Reds should make a run at Matt Morris? Apparently he's after a 1 year incentive laden deal after undergoing some labrum cleanup to re-establish his market value.

    I'm not sure what kind of $$$$ Morris would be looking for on a 1 year deal, though. Most likely more than he's worth semi-injured. I would think $4.5 with bonuses for IP, All-Star, Cy Young votes, etc should get it done.

    3.5 mill a year for Wilson, I can live with that. He made that much last year so it doesn't hurt the Reds payroll. Maybe my math is wrong but Dunn is the only one due for a big raise, Larue is signed (right?), and DJ may get a million dollar raise, So doesn't that mean when everyone that is on the roster now is taken care of the Reds Payroll will be around 45-48 million. If the payroll is suppose to go up to that 55 million range the Reds should still have 7-10 million to get a pitcher and maybe some help for the bullpen.

    It's the pitcher who's better than Wilson that you can't sign and desperately need that makes this a sin.

    The other thing is Wilson's doing all he can to be below average. If he slumps a little bit or his stuff goes downhill even a fraction, the results will be hideous.

    If they still go out and get one or two more starters (better than Wilson so that Wilson slides down to number 3 in the rotation) plus some bullpen help I say Bully!!

    If this precludes them in any way from going out and getting better pitchers than Wilson then I say big mistake.

    Will the $3.5mil/yr prohibit additional signings?

    Impossible to tell yet - the Reds haven't let anyone know what their salary budget will be, but knowing Allen 3.5 million to anyone will prohibit other signings on some level, I would guess.
