    One Name

    In a word, who is the one player you'd like to see the Reds acquire this offseason?

    Please try to keep it realistic. I'll start:

    J.UPTON
    Go BLUE!!!

    Given what I assume their costs to be, Denard Span (over Upton or Ellsbury).
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Beni you really had me fooled on your choice. I didn't suspect you would pick Upton

    Verlander, as realistic as many names listed so far.
    Win the Division

    Re: One Name

    Fowler may be the most realistic.
    Is it "next season" yet?

    Re: One Name

    The only player I can think of with one name is Ichiro, and he's past his sell-by date.

    As far as players with two names go, I'm not sure. I'd probably go with Fowler, but I'm open.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
