    Jocketty confirmed that the Reds had spoken to agents for both Scott Podsednik and Edgar Renteria.
    I could see Renteria getting a spot, due to history.

    I would like any remaining money to go towards Fred Lewis. If there is any left over, I would be fine with bringing in Renteria as a back-up.

    I'm for signing Renteria if it's only a couple million. He and Janish could split time.

    I'm OK with Renteria if he's cheap. GABP may bump his numbers a little. I'd prefer he and Cairo as an either/or though and not both.

    Just say no to Willy 'er Scott Podsednik. Still hoping for Damon with Lewis as a consolation prize.

    Why do people keep bringing up Fred Lewis? What am I missing here? Guy has no power for a leftfielder (in his only season with over 500 plate appearances he still only managed to hit 9 home runs), his career numbers against right handed pitchers, as a lefty, is only .776 - Gomes can come close to that number. I don't get it - surely there are way, way, way better targets.

    Like OCab.. Renteria is a winner. No doubt about it the guy just gets to the big game. I'm for it. His range isn't what it used to be.. But he is the World Series MVP. Add Scotty Pod, lock up Votto and this team has had a successful offseason.

    Right now, not so much. Its why all the "its early in the off-season" stuff doesn't wash with me. The better reasonable options (Dejesus and Willingham for example) have already been moved. I'd rather have a power lefty too, but the team is on record to be looking for lead-off types. After Damon, Lewis is the best still out there.

    I messed up the title of this thread.

    It should be... Reds looking for vet OF, INF.

    Barring a trade this is the way I would go with the little bit of money the Reds claim to have. Damon would be the other guy on my wish list but i think he will cost too much.

    The Reds will not be able to sign Renteria cheap.

    I don't understand why Janish and Chris V. won't do the job at short. I think they're great.

    Cause I'm sure Damon wants twice that. He'll be pushing for the Jeter/Werth approach.. Not years but he'll use those two as examples to get the most out of a team
