    Gary Mattews JR on the block?

    He is owed 3 years and about 28 million on his contract I believe. So how about the Reds send Masset to the Angels for Mattews JR. and about 15-18 million. That would be getting rid of a pitcher the Reds dont need and getting a solid OF. He has great defense and a decent bat with decent power. If the Reds could get him for around 4 or 5 million a year not a bad deal in my view. What say you?

    Nowhere for him to play. This 100% won't happen.

    Dickerson, Taveras, Bruce is your everyday OF.

    Wouldn't want to touch Matthews Jr. with a ten foot pole, personally.

    Wasn't he one of the steroid era superstars? I would be leery of anyone who had inflated numbers during that era.

    I could care less about the 'roids... he was just never that good of a player. Not to mention that is defense was severly overated. His defensive reputation resulted from 1 play. The Angels thought so little of his D that they turned around and signed Torii Hunter the next offseason.
    I know a lot of people are talking about his on-base percentage (.308 in 2008), but I like to think more in terms of him his in-scoring position percentage. - Our Beloved Manager

    At this point in his career, he's not any better than Willy T. That would be a waste.
