    Grady Sizemore
    Joe Nathan-if we can get him for cheap
    Brandon Webb for a cheap one year deal. Risky, but if he goes back to the way he was in Arizona, theres an Ace. That likely won't happen but if he's cheap. Why not?

    Re: Of the FA listed...who should the Reds target?

    Would Aaron Harang make a decent amount of sense? First, he should be relatively cheap. Second, he obviously benefited from pitching in PetCo last season, but he's pitched better at home throughout his career, even when home was GABP, so I wouldn't attribute his entire resurgence to a favorable home park. If he's finally healthy, I honestly wouldn't mind seeing him vying for a rotation spot.

    b/c hes older and we have those type of pitchers on the roster now. adding him does nothing.

    This could be a good thread to use to keep up with free agent signings,etc.

    He struggled in GABP his last couple of years on the team. Petco makes his value higher, but in reality I feel that we Reds fans know exactly what he would give us.

    Good guy, and I'll always like him, but I don't see it working out in Cincy again.

    Fair enough, although last year he did post the 2nd highest GB rate of his career, so his struggles in GABP might not be as pronounced as in years past.

    And at least according to Baseball Reference, Harang would have been the third most valuable starter on the Reds last year. I guess in the end it would really come down to what kind of deal he's looking for.

    Well, getting Roy Oswalt would be a sure fire way to make sure we don't lose to him again ...I'm just not sure we can afford him

    I'd add Saito. He's been a pretty underrated bullpen option, from what I've seen, and wouldn't be too expensive.

    I believe Kuroda traditionally has a low WHIP which would help in GABP.

    Joe Nathan could be gotten cheap and I have always liked Ryan Madson. Beltran is an interesting possibility - he might be able to get his career going again. Ultimately the Reds will sign Jonny Gomes and stay pat, so I don't know why we even have this thread.
