    Reds pick up options on Dunn, Valentin, Hatteberg

    Per Trent:

    Just got a text from Rob Butcher -- the Reds have picked up the options on Dunn, Valentin and Hatteberg. They declined the option on Guardado.

    I assume that means no on Guardado? If so great all around.

    There is a good start to the off-season. You know, if you don't count the Dusty thing that happened during the world series.

    I'd say Hatte is just either trade bait or the back up/bench player.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Or Hatteburg trade bait. They'd have been really dumb not to pick his option up, cheap as it is.

    Hatte would be a great guy to have filling in at 1B, Dh'ing and PH'ing off the bench, especially for an AL team who thinks they're close. Tigers? White Sox?

    You can get more for Votto....

    I'm not saying I want to do it, but you have to trade something to get something......so it could be an option

    According to Fay, Guardado will try to be resigned for a lesser rate...

    I'm cool with that.

    Hatteberg will be making around 2 Mill - why do you have to trade him or Votto?? Perfect spot starter and bench player.

    Now, if they want to trade Votto cause they can get mega-return, then GO FOR IT. But I see no problem with both being on the 25 - thats just good thinking.

    I really hope we part ways with Eddie. Hopefully he'll want more money on the open market.

    Whew...they didn't do anything stupid

    I would not have been upset if they passed on Javy, but I don't mind as long as they only carry 2 catchers.

    I'm fine with Hatteberg as a bench player, or as a platoon 1b if they can use Votto to significantly upgrade their rotation or back end of their bullpen. Then again, I won't be upset if they trade Hatteberg for a prospect of some repute.

    If he's cheap, can't hurt.
