    I would only say Gomes if his bat transfered to the major leagues. It also depends on the rest of the roster. Say Heisey is a good enough major leaguer over the next few years I think that makes Dorn probably more valuable than Gomes.

    He should be. He was the #1 pick in the same draft as Frazier, Cozart, Carroll, Soto and others.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    Leading off the bottom of the 11th inning, Rodriguez hammered a Taylor Reid offering over the right-field wall for the first walk-off homer of his young career. It was the Mustangs’ second walk-off win in the last three nights.
    “Before I went to the plate I was just thinking about getting on base,” the Venezuelan said. “From there I wanted to help the team build something.”

    Rodriguez hit a ball down the left-field line that surely would have been a home run earlier in his at-bat versus Reid, but it hooked foul.

    DT maybe, depends how the rest of his season goes.

    No on Henry, he's had a great year but I believe he's a FA
    No on Negron, (I wish though, he's a great guy and great clubhouse leader)
    No on Cochran. He's 29 and is a FA
    Why wouldn't Mes be eligible? He signed the contract a few days after he turned 19 if I recall correctly.

    Oh well, if that's the case, then yes. My bad, didn't realize he was 19 when he signed out of high school.

    I apologize.

    Orlando Cabrera - buyout is a big possibility; his option may be too costly
    Jonny Gomes - if he tanks the rest of the season as Heisey emerges, the Reds may pay his buyout and say he's expendable
    Laynce Nix - probably non-tendered once again
    Miguel Cairo - expired contract
    Bronson Arroyo - contract buyout could save the club a lot of money
    Aaron Harang - pretty much a lock to have his contract bought out
    Arthur Rhodes - expiring contract
    Mike Lincoln - expiring contract
    Bill Bray - if he struggles, he could be non-tendered
    Micah Owings - being optioned is probably a clue that he'll be non-tendered
    Jared Burton - will likely be non-tendered unless he comes up and dominates

    That is potentially 12 spots freed up right there. You also never know if the Reds will DFA guys like Daniel Ray Herrera, Drew Sutton, Juan Francisco, Sam LeCure, etc. to make room for Jason Isringhausen, Russ Springer, or trade deadline acquisitions.

    If Francisco is not on the 40-man roster, it'll be because he was traded, not DFA. He's a legit power prospect. He may be traded by July 31 though, I have a feeling.

    I agree, but crazier moves have been made. If I were the Reds, I would've traded him to an AL team in the off-season.

    They may do that within the next week. He really is gonna have to be in the AL to be a DH. He has amazing power, it was really fun watching him last season. Nice guy too.

    Cairo can be replaced by Valaika or Sutton
    Cabrera can be replaced by Cozart
    Nix can be replaced by Dorn

    Just for starters though. Everyone else is kind of a lateral move. I think the Reds will try to purge some guys off the 40 man soon be it by a trade or be it by straight DFA.

    I don't think we'll see anything like that happen until the Reds fall out of contention.

    Im speaking next years roster more than this years. The Reds have plenty of in house options to replace guys. I dont know why they wouldnt since a ton of them could be optioned up and down.
