    How about this as a possibility for 2007?

    Now here is an impressive list Wayne Krivsky should pursue:

    Nick Johnson
    Milton Bradley
    Barry Zito
    Randy Wolf
    Chris Reitsma

    Nick Johnson's ops of .948 would look beautiful in the middle of the lineup, and by signing him the Reds could move Votto to the OF for the future.

    2B. Ryan Freel
    RF. Milton Bradley
    CF. Ken Griffey Jr.
    1B. Nick Johnson
    LF. Adam Dunn
    3B. Edwin Encarnacion
    SS. Brandon Phillips
    C. David Ross

    Scott Hatteberg
    Rich Aurilia
    Javier Valentin
    Chris Denorfia
    Juan Castro

    Aaron Harang
    Barry Zito
    Bronson Arroyo
    Randy Wolf
    Eric Milton

    Bill Bray
    Gary Majewski
    Scott Schoeneweis (Resign)
    Chris Reitsma
    Matt Belisle
    Todd Coffey
    Closer - Eddie Guardado (Resign)
    Somebody's gotta win and somebody's gotta lose and I believe in letting the other guy lose.

    I don't think Nick Johnson or Milton Bradley are FA. Eddie Guardado might not come back till the All Star break so who is your closer till then? No Lohse, Cormier(already signed) or Claussen? Hatteberg should be the everyday 1st basemen. Also you know we have a Votto waiting in the wings..

    The team has already got 37.5 mil invested in Junior, Dunn, Milton, and LaRue.. add about another 10-15 for Aurilia, Harang, and Lohse. One of the Cincinnati beat writers came up with 75 million as a reasonable team salary next season. That would leave after signing everyone else for the min about 8-10 million to sign FA's. Now sure you could unload any of the big 4.. but how? Dunn would be the only one of value and to be honest I don't think if you dealt him this offseason you'd get his worth. Hope he has a good spring then see what you can get. As for your pitchers.. Zito will need to be blown away in dollars to come to the Reds. Wolf might be good, but only if he signs a 1-2 year deal.

    Why Milton Bradley? That's like having Jose Guillen and Bret Boone with a zest of Aaron Harangs new born baby girl...
