    Others declined so far:

    Jay Payton, Luis Gonzalez, Trot Nixon, Tomo Ohka, David Bell, Mark Loretta.

    No word on Reds players yet.

    With no draft picks involved I would look at Payton, Nixon, and Ohka.
    2006 Redszone Prospect Draft - Johnny Cueto
    2007 Redszone Prospect Draft - Pedro Viola, Alexis Oliveras
    2007 Redszone Mock Draft - 1st (27) Michael Burgess, Supp. (60) Wes Roemer, 2nd (92) Barry Enright, 3rd (122) Jonathan Bachanov
    2009 Redszone Mock Draft - 1st (9) Shelby Miller, 2nd (58) Marc Krauss, 3rd (89) Daniel Fields

    I agree with you Cincy09. I would like for Trot Nixon to sign for the Reds. He is from my Hometown of Wilmington, NC.

    Pettite could not command more that 7 million a year. Would you sign him to a 2 year deal? We have worse options at our 3, 4 and 5th starter.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card
