    Hermida's 2007 is indicative of what he's capable of doing. .296/.369/.501/OPS+125

    I've got Walt's back for a while. He did some loopy things with the Cardinals that seemed to work out well, sometimes in the face of all evidence to the contrary at the time they were done.

    He knows what he's doing and has built a championship ballclub. That's something the last few dudes around here can't put on their resume.

    Even if he signs Taveras or Rivera, I'll still be a Walt supporter -- though I'll remain puzzled as to exactly what his plan is.

    Looks like the Reds may be about to sign Willy Taveras, who only has 3 votes in this poll. Man, Walt really has to start reading RedsZone more.

    According to Fay, Walt has "an offer out" to Taveras.

    Edit: Or, rather, he is "believed to have an offer out." Not exactly a smoking gun... but I still have a feeling that WT is going to be a Red in 2009.

    I've got that same feeling and it's got me looking for my Zantac.

    oh ok, i'd read that article, but for some reason "close to signing" caused me to go into a panic-induced rage... i can live w/ "believed to have an offer out" even tho its not good news, by any means

    At SS, CF, C it's easier to accept an OBP challenged guy.

    But thanks for explaining your reasoning. I appreciate the feedback, as I was puzzled why Heredia was such an overwhleming favorite.
    I don't think there is any question he will hit well enough for it. Just go take a look at his Road #'s? He is killing the ball outside of the gargantuan joint he's currently playing in. His power just doesn't play well there, putting him in the exact opposite type of park could pay massive dividends.
