    Keep in mind that the Reds have a million dollar option on Castro that I would guess that there is about an 80% chance that Wayne will pick up. Not saying he will be starting but he will be the back-up.

    I would love to have Cesar Izturis to team with Brandon Phillips in the middle of the Reds infield. I watched him last night against the Nationals. Had a homerun, and while not a homerun hitter, I think the guy would take off with the Reds in Great American Ballpark. With Freel, Izturis and Phillips, the Reds would have a lot of speed in the lineup.

    Update from my original post. Dodgers has acquired Wilson Betemit from the Braves. Cesar Izturis will once again be without a starting position when Jeff Kent comes off the DL next week.

    Lugo is currently negotiating with TB. He wants 4 years at 9 Mil per.

    He won't be playing for TB then.

    He is having a career year at TB - .309 BA + .371 OB% = .875 OPS (12 dingers)

    I'm sure that is influencing his contract demands; but if anyone falls for it, then they are fools. The guy is a career .751 OPS guy (slightly above league avg for SSs).

    no doubt and I would hope the Reds stay very far away from this guy.

    I'd go after Itzurus too... Eventually when Mueller comes back he'll be displayed again. And the Dodgers were even talking about Tejada. Would be a good move to snag him IMO then flip Clayton to a team like the Jays.

    There's not a chance. They had a comparable player, and muc cheaper even with a contract coming up, in Lopez.

    Krivsky has options. I personally think they'll move Phillips to SS next season, and try to fill the void at 2B. And that could very well be a Freel (with an RA backup & platoon at 1B w/ Hat).

    We'll see. But they do have options.

    Unfortunately he might not ever have a stick good enough for the big leagues. I would love to eat crow on that thought.

    Why would the Blue Jays, a team that values stats like OBP and OPS, want Clayton?
