    Do the Reds go after Julio Lugo in the Offseason?

    He is a free agent, and could conceivably be the final piece to the infield puzzle. Depending on how this year goes, I doubt Aurilia, Castro, or Royce are back and we don't really have a solid SS in Louisville.

    I think it would be a smart pickup. Gives us more speed and he is solid defensively

    Re: Do the Reds go after Julio Lugo in the Offseason?

    Phillips is going to be our SS next year, that much I can assure you.

    IMO if we can get Griffey to move to RF, we should try to get a good 2nd baseman or CFer. Whichever one we get, Freel plays the other position.

    Re: Do the Reds go after Julio Lugo in the Offseason?

    I think the thing you are missing is that he is not a good defender. At one point I was willing to take him on for the remainder of this season for the right deal, get some draft picks at the end of the season when someone else signed him and move on. But to sign him to a LTC in the neighborhood of 50 mill over 4-5 years, for a guy who is not a good defender and whom is already around 32 years old is not wise. Now if he would take less and play 2nd I would consider it.

    He's asking for an 8 million/year multiyear contract. No thanks.

    By all metrics, he's only slightly better with the glove than Felipe Lopez.

    Assuming the new tv deal is true, we should have maybe 10 million to spend (is that to much?). A few names that intrigue me:

    Miguel Batista
    Joe Borowski
    Mike Buerhle
    Mike Cameron
    Francisco Cordero
    Jermaine Dye
    Dustin Hermanson
    Ted Lilly
    Julio Lugo
    Gil Meche
    Jason Schmidt
    Randy Wolf
    Barry Zito

    Re: Do the Reds go after Julio Lugo in the Offseason?

    I just read a half-dozen articles on Julio Lugo being arrested in 2003 while a member of the Houston Astros. The Astros demoted him after his arrest and his contract was eventually traded to the Devil Rays.

    This piece from Wikipedia sums up the gist of those articles. However, I read in one of the articles that Lugo was facing a year in jail until his wife recanted her story. Good thing for Julio that she finally remembered what really happened, huh? (wink-wink) The 'facing a year in jail' wasn't mentioned in this Wikipedia piece.

    On April 30 2003, Lugo was arrested and charged with assulting his wife, Mabely Lugo outside of Minute Maid Park in Houston before playing the Atlanta Braves. Mabely was treated and released from a hospital, and filed a restraining order against Julio. Mabely originally contended that Julio punched her in the head and slammed her head into the windshield of their car. Julio contested that he was acting in self defense by blocking an attack by his wife, who hit herself and stumbled into the car, smashing her head into the windshield. Mabely later changed her story to coordinate with her husband's, and dropped the restraining order, however Julio was still tried in court accused of misdemeanor assault. Julio was eventually found not-guilty, and he has remained out of trouble since this incident.

    looks like we will be droping some bagage come the offseason.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    Ricky henderson has a higher OBP than C. patterson and he's retired. C. Trent 6-14-2008

    And scrappy infielders galore. The possibilities, Wes Helms, Todd Walker, Jose Vizquiano, Mark De Rosa.
