    Alex Gordon?

    Would it be worth revisiting these discussions? I really wanted the Reds to target him before last season.

    Then, he had a great year, got a contract, now he seems to have regressed (although it's early).*

    He hits lefty, plays LF and occasionally 3B, and is signed through 2015 which, by then, hopefully Lutz, Y-Rod, and/or this year's draft picks are ready to take over.

    I know the Reds probably don't want to take on a lot of added payroll, but I wonder if a creative solution could be worked out? The Royals clearly aren't going to contend this year (and maybe next year), so maybe they'd be open to moving him now that he isn't replicating last year's success?

    Problem is if I'm the Reds, the Royals have to take on at least half of that contract if they want significant prospects back. I wonder what it would take?




    * He is still having a better year than Travis Wood and Dave Sappelt, TRF
