    Early look at the 2012-2013 free agents

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2011/0...ee-agents.html

    BP is listed. So is Madson with an option.

    Hey, Corey Patterson will be a FA next year-- I guess the Reds are set if Ludwick and Heisey don't work out in the OF.

    In all seriousness, is there anyone on the list you'd like to see the Reds make a run at? I suppose it largely depends on what holes the team has going into the next off season, but just skimming the list, I'd say Aybar would be a nice addition if Cozart doesn't pan out. He hits well for a SS, but a lot of his value comes from his defense, so he might be cheap enough for the Reds to seriously consider.

    There are eight or nine TOR pitchers on that list, IMO.

    A bit premature to start thinking about FA's. I don't think we ought to expect that every off season will be like this one. I have been a Reds fan since 1969, and the last off season like this one was when the Lee May package was traded for the Joe Morgan package. It may be forty years before we see another off season like this one.

    Wow... there are a ton of free agent catchers. Molina is going to be one of the top free agents.

    Rolen will be a 38 year old free agent, and Youkilis will be a 34 year old free agent. Hmmm.

    I hate to say this but that class looks to be pretty weak at first. As much as I want to keep Votto some team might get desperate and be willing to overpay to get him.
