Any thoughts?Monday, January 30, 2006
I mentioned in my notebook today that the Reds are looking for a veteran middle-relief type, with ex-Pirates Rick White and Brian Meadows possibly in the mix.
Just talked to Dan Horwits, the agent for both guys, and he said he spoke with Brad Kullman a couple times over the weekend and plans to do so again today. It sounds like White is the more likely candidate at this point. He lives up the road in Springfield and has been open about his desire to play for the Reds.
"We’ve been discussing White for quite some time," Horwits said. "I think there’s mutual interest there and we’ll see if we can’t get that done."
Discussions involving Meadows have been on and off, he said, but have picked up lately.
"Both of them are down the line with some other clubs," said Horwits, "but they’re still keeping the Reds in the mix because of their interest in going there."
