    CIN talked to Chris Heisey about multi-year deals re:arbitration situation, but he's likely to sign 1-year deal, source close to Reds says.

    Smart move from a career perspective, IMO. Last year was a down year for him. I don't think he'd be able to play himself off next year's team, so it's not like it's his only chance to make some money.

    If he gets traded, becomes a starter, and puts up good numbers, his leverage bodes well for a better contract.

    Does anyone think that Heisey is ever going to land a starting job anywhere?

    He's Reds' property until 2017. If I was him, I wouldn't mind signing a 2 year deal. I just can't see him making himself that much more valuable to an arbitrator next year.

    The only thing I can think of is that maybe Chris thinks that going year to year will hasten a trade out of Cincy? I'd grab some security if I was Chris.

    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Heisey is Just another Denorfria... Something the Reds are very good at producing.

    Is it just me or are the Reds rather conspicuous in their absence in this list?
