    I would like to see what the Reds coaching staff could do with him. Especially in a relief role, and he could be a nice swingman.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Harden, Jenks, Johnson, Sizemore, Bartlett could all be nice bench or depth options. Wouldn't mind putting Jurrjens in the minors somewhere.

    He always looked kinda out-of-shape, even in his younger days. Just one of those guys with chubby looking frames, just like Mesoraco...

    Bartlett would be a nice pickup.

    How about Lance Berkman as a fourth OF/ PH/ backup 1B? I'd love to see that happen on the cheap (realizing Berkman's looking for a starting spot and more money than the Reds can offer). I'd also love to see Tom Gorzelanny or Manny Parra. (Live arm, ten cent head.)

    There's still time for him to report to camp "in the best shape of his life."

    Bartlett was a pretty solid player then fell off the map in a small sample last year. I wonder if last year's down season will allow Bartlett to accept a backup position and much less than the $5.5 million he made last year. I am guessing he will not accept either. Either way, the Reds don't need Bartlett. If he can't find a starting job, then finds out that there are none available, maybe he wants to win some games and he will be interested in Cincinnati. Either way, I agree he is a great target, and I love the last name of Bartlett due to the West Wing.

    I agree on Gorzelanny too. He was very solid last year, especially vs. lefties. Again, I wonder how cheap he will come considering he had a sub 3 ERA and made 3 million dollars last year...

    If no one wants him.

    You'd think when a player gets to that age they'd want to simply play for a contender and the money would be important, but not AS important.

    Sorry to point this out... but are there any "available" free agents who are not also, by definition, still "remaining"?
