I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
Teams that can afford to pay him to no longer occupy a roster spot would do so, but the Reds unfortunately are not in that position.
The way I see it the Reds are gonna have to pay Taveras anyway, might as well pay him to make outs for some other team.

Honest question here. Do you believe that there is any other team in baseball that would keep Taveras on their roster for what the Reds are paying him in 2010, rather than cutting him loose and actually paying a youngster the minimum salary to potentially contribute to victories for the team?
