    Whom does Wayne return with Dec. 7?

    When the Winter Meetings end on the 7th who is in the fold? Place your bets.

    I'm going to put money on Jake Westbrook being in a Reds (sharp-looking) uni by the time the meetings are done with. I can also see us signing Craig Wilson. I could possibly see us sending a package to Colorado for Holliday but I wouldn't put money on it.

    I'm thinking Craig Wilson too.

    The Yankees didn't offer him Arb.

    I'm still sticking to my deal with the Tigers:

    Dunn, Coffey and Brian Shackelford to Detroit for OF Craig Monroe, RHP reliever Fernando Rodney and LHP Will Ledezma.

    Reds then sign either Craig Wilson or Eduardo Perez.

    1-1 odds that he brings back Mrs. Krivsky.

    8-5 odds he brings another catcher, an ex-Twin, or another Middle Infielder

    5-1 odds he brings back the RH 1b (either Perez or Wilson)

    10-1 odds he brings back relief help

    50-1 odds he lands a starting pitcher.

    100-1 odds he trades Dunn

    1000-1 odds he trades Griffey

    100000-1 odds he hires Krusty as Ass't GM.

    a bunch of nothing?

    The pessimist in me says Darin Erstad, Matt Lecroy and Steve Trachsel.

    The optimist says Jay Payton, Craig Wilson, and Jason Jennings.

    The realist says Eduardo Perez and a reliever who is suited for the 7th inning at best like the other 20 or so on the roster. Maybe Weathers.

    Too many low cost pickups for me to guess.

    Player or players that would not increase the operations budget, that is the player payroll budget by more than a little bit or some players that can fit into the wiggle room within the budget.

    Or he will have to trade some of his current major league roster or potential jewels within the minor leagues. He has three catchers, one second baseman, Phillips a first baseman, Hatteberg and a left fielder, Dunn and right fielder, Freel that he could trade, but unless he makes a huge haul in return it will probably not make sense to him to trade any of them and then he will return with nothing. So I will guess small moves that do not cause the budget to go higher outside of “wiggle room” like his previous 42.

    That sounds absolutely outstanding.

    Do you think the Rockies are just going to give Jennings away? I think it would cost at least Freel (he would provide coverage in center) along with adding a couple of arms (Belisle?, Bray?) to the deal.
