    Re: You've got to be kidding me....Reds continue to negotiate with Aurilia

    Something that really gets to me about actively pursuing Richie boy is that Adam Dunn and a LTC was going to finally be considered after the first of the year, but some hanger-on playing a position we already have covered who cannot even play for the Reds until May 1 is getting significant attention from the front office. In my business, it would be like interviewing 10 cleaning people and no tax preparers during December when we need a tax preparer and already have a cleaning person. It is just unfathomable to me that signing Rich Aurilia has happened, let alone received so much attention from an executive. Screwy, just screwy.

    Especially their ace, Jack Sparrow. He is 10-1, 2.44 ERA and 7 complete games.

    While I agree with everything you said, re: prioritizing, Aurilia can play before May 1. If they sign him before the 9th then he goes to camp with the Reds.

    Doh, I thought it was refusing arbitration that kicked that in. Thanks for pointing that out. Whew, that's a relief. I thought we were going to have to make it through the dog days of April with only TWO second baseman. Our flexibility is restored.

    Now, it seems like there's a guy that strikes out too much, cannot hit in the clutch nor consistently hit a sacrifice fly, and only hits solo home runs that wants to set up an appointment with DanO. Hope that his Daytimer isn't full already with the other business of baseball.

    Won't matter..if Rich signs the fix is in like last year with Lopez..Rich will be the 3B.

    Him being at 1st is now the best case scenario.

    If Rich is signed look for him to be our EVERY DAY 2B...look for Freel too be packeged in a deal to get more pitching...Womack becomes the Freel-like sub.
