    De Aza...maybe? I don't know. Fowlers good personality wise, and puts up good numbers but I have a feeling it's take more to get him.

    Plus i'm not sure how much Fowlers numbers are inflated from Coors in terms of triples and doubles, and the small power that he does have.

    IDK. There both good, and I would be exceedingly satisfied with both.

    Ignoring price, Fowler.

    Factoring in price, de Aza (I am assuming Fowler will cost more, but I could be wrong I guess).

    DeJesus isn't a bad idea either. But doesn't he play LF mostly?

    One other thing to consider is I think Fowler has a good enough bat to fit into LF if Hamilton pans out. With a good enough team a bopper in LF isn't as necessary as just having 8 good position players. De Aza on the other hand, I don't think he has the bat to put in LF. So when/if Hamilton is ready there would be a decision to make.

    All that being said, I would still love it for the Reds to land de Aza. He would help the team as Hamilton seasons, and is good enough if BHam doesn't pan out.

    No idea man. If I had to guess Fowler, since there has been a Fowler rumor for several days, whereas I didn't see the de Aza rumor till today. That is all I really have to go off of.

    That wouldn't a be an awful idea. De Jesus has great plate displine, and has a career .281 batting, and .355 OBP. An he has some speed still left in the tank as well.

    The Reds need a 1 year bride to Hamilton..if you sign fowler, or De Aza, does that make Hamitlon expandable?

    Yea, I see that as a good possibility. But I'm trying to stay optimistic!

    Fowler, clearly.

    I also agree with Larkin88 on his power potential (especially at GABP), and that Cingrani shouldn't be offered.
