    Also, Johnny Narron will not be back.

    Reds will try to resign Guardado at reduced rate.

    With Votto at first and Cantu there to fill in (platoon?), my prediction is part of a trade in the offseason.

    These are all smart moves, except maybe Narron's firing. I think that Hatteberg can bring significant value this offseason. I really hope they don't plan on having him platooning though. Votto is better than Hatteberg, and I really hope we can get something for Scott.
    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.

    These are good option pickups. Allows alittle time to work out a long term deal for Dunn. Too bad about Guardardo not being picked up, but I agree with getting him at a cheaper rate for next season and lets see how well he recovers. He was starting to look good at the very end of the season after some awful early outings when first coming back. I think he pitched better than Stanton was at the end of the season (of course the only one pitching worse was Sarrloos, Milton & Dumtrait and they are all gone now, hmmmm).

    I don't see Jo. Narron leaving as being any sort of problem. It was nice to have him there while Hamilton transitioned to life in the big leagues, but now that Josh has formed relationships with his teammates and other coaches who'll be surrounding him, I really don't think Jo. Narron is needed anymore.

    Even if Hatteberg doesn't platoon, he is still a huge bat off the bench. He's not really all that expensive.

    So, does anyone think now that Dunn's option was picked up, this means no LTD?

    I am pleased with the options being picked up.

    Perfect on all fronts.

    Now see if Everyday Eddie will agree to a lesser deal and lock the Big Donk up for at least another 3 years.

    Should have let Dunn walk and use his money to rebuild the bullpen.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Why not use Milton's money and Cormier's money to rebuild the bullpen?

    The 2005 version of Javy was good.

    The 2007 version stunk.
    His OPS last year was .715. He hit one home run.

    Not picking up Dunn's option would have been a colossal mistake.

    You can't come even the least bit close to replacing his massive offensive production with 13 million dollars (especially considering that it is all produced from a single offensive position).

    The pitching needs improvement, but not at the expense of losing Dunn.
