    Willy Tavares

    What's the status with him? Are the Rockies looking to unload on him? I would absolutely love to have him on the Reds, he's an absolute speedster. The only negative I could see is we would definitely have a very low power team, but with Bruce, Dickerson and Tavares in the outfield at once...that's a hell of a lot of speed.

    We won't go for Tavares. I would love the speed however, our need is power right now. Defensively he is decent b/c he is so fast.

    He's actually a very poor defensive outfielder, with no arm whatsoever. The only thing he does have going for him is speed.
    We'll win it all next year...

    He also gets on base about as much as Patterson did.

    Taveras's career high OPS is .748 and that appeared to be a one year anomaly where his BABIP was .80 points above what it should have been, so Taveras got extremely lucky in '07. Just say no to Willy he isn't worth it.

    Baseball is not necessarily an obsessive-compulsive disorder, like washing your hands 100 times a day, but it's beginning to seem that way. We're reaching the point where you can be a truly dedicated, state-of-the-art fan or you can have a life. Take your pick. ~Thomas Boswell

    Having a life is overrated.
