    Brad(big country) Eldred fro0m the Pirates

    My dad is a pirates fan and he told me that were Eldred is in the last year of his contract and it looks like he won't get a really good opertunity to prove himself to the Bucs that they will probably not resign him after the season.My question is if all these trades/rumors go down with the reds then would you consider signing the guy to a little contract say about 500,000 for one year??

    Eldred is a 1B/OF, right? I wouldn't mind taking a look at him as a backup who provides power off the bench, but I don't see anywhere for him to play unless some of these deals actually happen (of which I am doubtful).

    I think Eldred would be a cheap power laden guy to pair with Votto next year. I think Votto will neeed a RH half for at least a year or two.

    If he could be had for a waiver claim or as a return for dumping a suspect (Majewski? Shackelford?), it would be OK IMO. I wouldn't give up any real value for him. There are guys like him available as minor league free agents every year.

    Eldred isn't a free agent.
