    Free Agents

    I was watching ESPNEWS this afternoon and they had the Top Ten free agent list on there, lol although i can only remember a few.... Rodger Clemens, Sammy Sosa, Mike Cameron, Tino Martinez.
    I was wandering why the reds arent going after any of them......

    Mike Cameron isn't a FA. He is a Padre I believe.

    No use for Martinez and Sosa. They would be unneeded back-ups.

    As for Clemens, he has made it clear where he wants to play and it aint in Cincy. Not to mention the 20M price tag on him.

    why no use for tino? he can play first base. And everytime Sosa comes to Cincy it seems like he hits a homer everytime......it would be nice to have him for some run support......

    But where would he play? The Reds just dealt Casey so that they could play Dunn (now 1B), Pena (now LF), Griffey (CF), and Kearns (RF) everyday. That would make absolutely sense to take on either a firstbaseman or an outfielder. If the Reds were going to do that, they wouldn't have traded away their most popular player. (Not to mention, both of those players you named are old, on downward slopes in their careers, and/but happen to have hefty price tags on them.)

    Here's to another record-breaking season from Adam Dunn ...another 40 homeruns (all coming with nothing on the line) and 200 Ks! We Want King Jay!!

    Our offense was one of the best last year. Sosa would make it worse. If the reds need an OF spare he better be a good fielder since we have all the hitters we need.

    I don't see much use for having a back-up 1st baseman that can't play other positions.

    Regardless, UGADaddy is right on all counts. We have others who can play in the outfield. Don't waste your money.

    Rocket will not come to Cincy even for $20M.

    The rest...can they pitch?
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    Re: Free Agents

    Maybe i am just looking for the Reds to make a move this offseason that would help them, even if its +0.000001%

    That's fine, but I think you need to look at different players. I don't think the guys you mentioned are a good fit for the Reds.

    The only move you'll hear about is DanO's flatulence after knocking out a 4 way at Skyline.

    And that's fine with me.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    No move is better than a bad move, IMHO.

    I truly don't want that man to do this team any more harm.

    If we were to spend any more money we need some more help with the pitching. Runs are never a problem for this team. Keeping everyone else from scoring is.
