    Twins offer Silva a 3-year deal. Can the Reds offer a 4-year deal at that amount?

    http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/rumors;_...s61H_GBzQRvLYF

    $7 million per year? Can the Reds offer a 4-year deal at that amount?

    Problem is, with Bailey and Cueto developing, do we need him? Part of me thinks we could use him. He's still young enough that his better years are possibly ahead of him.

    What do you think?

    Re: Twins offer Silva a 3-year deal

    I don't think that offer will be enough. Silva seems to want a fourth year in his contract. I suppose it all depends on how quickly Bailey and Cueto develop. I think he could be a good no.3, and I would love it if we could keep it at 7 million , instead of 9 or 10 like I have been hearing. Here are his recent stats:

    Year Team G GS W L CG IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP BAA
    2005 MIN 27 27 9 8 2 188.3 212 83 72 25 9 71 3.44 1.17 .291
    2006 MIN 36 31 11 15 0 180.3 246 130 119 38 32 70 5.94 1.54 .324
    2007 MIN 33 33 13 14 2 202 229 99 94 20 36 89 4.19 1.31 .287

    Career M 55 46 945 1122 489 453 117 171 395 4.31 1.37 .299

    Judge for yourself if you want that sort of pitcher in our rotation

    7 mil would be fine for him. I think he'll get more. Hopefully it's from the Reds.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    That .BAA in GABP could be scary.

    I wouldn't be opposed to giving Silva a 3 year 27 million dollar deal.

    nobody would. He's going to get much more than that. He's at least as good as some of the guys that got ridiculous deals last year (Meche and Suppan for example) and he's younger. At 26, he's probably going to get 4/42 at least. It doesn't help that there aren't many young top tier pitchers available this year.

    Re: Twins offer Silva a 3-year deal

    Silva is younger than any of them and his fine 2007 sets the bar at four years, $40MM. Stretching that to $42-44MM would not be ridiculous.

    It looks like 4-40 will be the minimum with 42-44 being a possibility. It seems unlikely anyone will get him for only 7 million.

    There is a 15-day filing period for free agents after the World Series is over. The Twins have exclusive negotiating rights with Silva for those fifteen days. After that period, Silva can negotiate with any other team.

    Schilling is never coming to Cincy. Not close enough to winning, and not a big enough media market.... gotta let go of that idea.

    Schilling said he would go to Tampa Bay because of all the young guys. Tampa doesn't have a big enough media market not are they close to winning.

    I don't want Silva. By May 15th we could realize we have another Miltonesque disaster on our hands.

    PLUS with Belisle, Bailey & Cueto we might have a great rotation by 2009. IMO we need a one year starter ( Schilling! , Lieber? ) and then see how the above three perform in 2008.
