If you were to sign one Reds pitcher through 2017, who would it be?
Cueto is 26 and a FA after 2014 (has a $10MM option for 2015).
Bailey is 26 and a FA after 2015.
Latos and Leake will soon turn 25 and are FA after 2016.
Assume for these purposes that very roughly, it would cost about the same amount to lock up 3 FA years of Cueto, 2 FA years of Bailey + 3 arb years, and 1 FA year of Latos + 3 arb years. Obviously at this point, it would likely cost substantially less to lock up Leake. So with that said, which horse would you pay to lockup through 2017?
Separate question: Using the parameters outlined above, how would you prioritize them?
