    The Reds should make a play for Jack Wilson

    He is NOT happy in Pittsburgh right now. He'd be a good option for Cincinnati right now.

    No thanks. I'd rather have Gonzalez or Janish than trade prospects for a slight upgrade, if that.

    Because we need another over 30 injury prone SS making more money than Gonzo?

    I think because of his salary...he could be had for very little. Especially if he's disgruntled.

    He's definitely an upgrade over the current situation.

    Orlando Cabrera who is dying in Oakland might be rejuvenated in GABP and is much cheaper at about 2 million for the rest of the season. Not great this year so far but probably better than Janish or Gonzo overall. Not saying I want him but he's probably a better get than Wilson. I'm still all for acquiring M. Izturis.

    Jack Wilson is precisely the type of player that a team like the Reds absolutely needs to avoid at all costs.

    We've already got one Willy Taveras on the team; adding another isn't any going to be good for anything.

    Jack Wilson?

    The Reds need to pursue Jack Wilson with the fervor that OJ devoted to finding the "killer'.

    That would be my plan of attack on that subject.

    but that's just me.

    Upgrade 3B and CF with in house options and let Janish be Jack Wilson.

    I don't mind Jack Wilson, but I think people do have a valid point to not want him.

    Jack Wilson career OBP: .311

    He's had 2 good offensive years ('04 and '07) in his 8+ big league seasons -- and even then, good was ~.790 OPS.
