    Pudge and Edmonds as reds? Rotoworld thinks so!

    Here is the link. Rodriguez work for me but I want no part of Edmonds and his severly declining skills.

    I would have no problem with a one year deal for Rodriguez. While reading that, I was happy we didn't still have Krivsky, as he would be more likely to guarantee a second year.

    I hope Edmonds does not come to Cincinnati.

    Hell no to Edmonds.

    Irod would be interesting, but only if he hasn't signed with anyone by mid-spring training, and only if Hanigan plays himself out of being the starter.

    And somewhere, George Grande is reading this report and smiling as he thinks about fawning over Edmonds for 162 games.

    Please god no Edmonds.

    I'm on the fence about Pudge, but something tells me it would be backwards progress to sign an aging catcher with a declining skill set for one year. If it's for the right price I could handle it, but only if they team acquires another catching prospect via trade who'd be ready to go in 2010.

    If IRod wants 10 mil for next season I want no part of him. Yes he has a cannon but 10 mil, he might even bump Eric Milton for dumbest offseason signing. Why not Jason Kendall for less than half that? If he'd take 2-5 mil, he's use to handling young pitchers, never see the problems with pitchers, not the hitter he use to be but if were looking at defense why not, .330 OBP this year? 30% career throwing out runners trying to steal. If Hannigan beats him out keep him around to tutor.

    Jim Edmonds for anything is too much. He's Ken Griffey Jr part duex. Theres NO reason I see bringing him in for anything more than the vet min. If he comes he basically replaces Patterson as worst hitter on the team. We have in house options to play CF, there shouldnt even be a discussion about Edmonds (I dont care the ties to St. Louis and Walt).

    I agree wholeheartedly. However, I fear that Walt's influence and past with Edmonds in STL might make it more likely that we get Edmonds than Pudge.

    Detroit signed him to a 3 or 4 year deal last Winter for $10M per season. That's the contract we would pick up and he'd have to be traded to us by the Yankees.

    I don't know where Rotoworld is getting the idea that he's a free agent.

    The Tigers signed him to that contract after the 2004 season. All they did last winter was exercise his '08 option.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    According to Cot's...



    Ivan Rodriguez c
    4 years/$40M (2004-07), plus 2008 club option

    • acquired in trade from Detroit 7/30/08 (waived no-trade clause)
    • 4 years/$40M (2004-07), plus 2008 club option
      • 04:$7M, 05:$8M, 06:$11M, 07:$11M, 08:$13M club option ($3M buyout)
      • $8M-$11M deferred at 1% interest ($2M in 2004, $3M each in 2006-08)
      • Tigers exercised $13M 2008 option 10/9/07

    To note that the Tigers should have stuck with the $3 million buyout is enough for me to know that the Reds should stay far, far away. Veteran leadership only goes so far...

    You're probably right. He's SLGing under .400 this year with an OBP of .320. His line with the Yankees is Pattersonesque. Hanigan could probably easily out-produce that.

    Although his numbers could get a boost in GABP...
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.
