Dear Santa.. I Wish My Reds..
I am bored as a Reds fan this offseason. I missed out on RedsFest this year and the hot stove has been more like an ice box. So I'm compiling a few moves to have Santa put under our Reds holiday tree.
Trade Francisco Cordero and Chris Dickerson to the Tigers for Jeremy Bonderman and Alex Avila
Trade Bronson Arroyo, Kyle Lotzkar, and Chris Valakia to the Angels Erick Aybar
Trade Arthur Rhodes to the Marlins for PTBN
Sign Vladimir Guerrero for 2yrs/16M
Sign Chin Ming Wang 1yr/5M w/ Player Option @ 8M
Reds Opening Day Roster -
Hanigan - C
Hernandez - C
Votto - 1B
Phillips - 2B
Aybar - SS
Rolen - 3B
Janish - UTL
Sutton - UTL
Bruce - RF
Stubbs - CF
Guerrero - LF
Balentine - OF
Taveras - OF
With these moves the Reds don't gain any payroll and they don't gain much if any. These moves not only keep payroll where the team likes but also fills many needs for this team. A RH power bat to place between Votto & Bruce, a young solidified SS of the future, and a catching prospect for 2010 to compliment Ryan Hanigan. What would you ask for?
