    If I could have any FA off that list it would be Tom Gorzelanny...

    I'd take Kelly Johnson - of course, I don't have to pay him.

    Agreed.

    Having Ryan Sweeney in camp to compete for the fifth OF spot wouldn't hurt either.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Agree about wanting Gorzelanny.

    Re: Available remaining free agents

    Some names on there I am surprised to still see available. One thing I'd like for the Reds to consider would be a strong defensive outfielder for the bench, but I think Heisey will probably end up being their only spare outfield coming out of spring training.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Oh come on now, don't you all want the Reds to take a flyer on Carlos Zambrano?

    I agree. Signing him would be a nice insurance policy and if he did get to play he can swing the bat a little. Theres also some good pitchers still available. Liriano, Dallas Braden, and Farnsworth out of the pen.

    Liriano: yuck. Minor league depth only.
    Braden: blown out shoulder
    Farnsworth: We need LHP, not RHP

    I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.

    Some people are Optimists (They see the glass 1/2 full).
    Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
    Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.
