"[T]he Lopez negotiations could get dicey. He's a Scott Boras guy, and I'm sure the superagent is licking his chops with Felipe becoming first-year arb-eligible after the year he had."
I didn't realize FeLo's agent was Scott Boras and that's not good for the Reds in their current state. I don't know what's going to happen with Castinelli after he takes over the ownership. But if the Reds retain the 60 million payroll as in 2005 it might be hard to juggle a huge contract. I hope the Reds don't up and trade him, especially after Lopez became the NL's most productive offensive SS. I also hope that this and the stockpiling of overaged middle infielders have nothing in common.
