    Javy is a free agent

    Catcher Javier Valentin declined a minor league assignment and became a free agent. I post this because the candidates for the Reds LH bench bat are so bad.

    John Fay reports on his blog that Javy is visiting the Reds and "chatting up" Dusty...


    "Javy Valentin is watching the Reds take BP and chatting up Dusty Baker.

    He's on my top 5 of favorite Reds. Great guy. Ill-suited for his role last year."

    I agree, although I'm biased because he's a really nice guy! Yay for Javy!

    No, thanks. If that's what the Reds are looking for, I think it makes more sense to bring back Daryle Ward.

    We most move foward, not backwards. Upward, not downward. And always twirling, twirling, twirling towards...not having Javy.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    This is the epitome of the state of the Reds.

    Epic fail.

    We do not need 3 catchers. Could use another 3rd baseman though

    Bringing back Javy would just about top things off.
