Now the asking price is rumored to be down in the earthly range of 4yr/$32MM. Do the Reds have the available funds for this? Can the Reds afford another potential Chapman V.2? Granted, he's not a pitcher, so health concerns aren't quite as much of an issue, but still a realistic expectation. Is he an upgrade over Stubbs? That's a good bit cheaper than Beltran went to StL for, but Id hate to make that investment only to make him the highest paid player in AAA.
That said, I take the chance.
