    Reds interested in Bumgarner?

    Per Heyman:

    Reds are among teams with interest in Madison Bumgarner. Manager David Bell was in #SFGiants front office. Braves, Twins, Angels, Padres, Yankees and Phillies are other logical possibilities. @Feinsand says deal could come soon.

    Depends on money and years. I'm not sure he's a great fit at GABP, but he brings some experience and credibility. I think he has a higher floor and lower ceiling than Wheeler did, if that makes any sense.

    uk That totally makes sense. I think Bumgarner is really durable (save when he gets reckless on his motorcycle) and would really solidify our rotation. Would be a helluva third/fourth starter, that's for sure. I wonder if he will get similar money to Wheeler. He also seems likely to sign before the meetings, so hold onto your butts...

    He's a guy I really worry about signing for long term. I'd overpay on a shorter 2-3 years deal, but I'm guessing that's not what he is looking for.

    By "long term" you mean 5 years, I suppose?

    Iím not. If I were to go after a soft tossing lefty, Iíd want Ryu.

    I just see nothing but continued declined for MB. There is no doubting his competitiveness and post season success, but I canít belive his WAR at this stage is going to be on par with his contract. Iím afraid we might be buying into a name here...

    Read reports last season that his velocity was back to pre-injury levels. If that's the case, I think he could be a decent signing if the money is right. He sure knows how to pitch and pitch in the postseason.

    I really hope we don’t back up the truck for a past-his-prime MadBum.

    I'd rather go for Keuchel unless DJ and Boddy see signs of life in Bumgarner. If they like him, then I guess I would too. His recent decline and HR rate are concerning though.

    I think Dallas Keuchles ground ball tendencies would play a whole lot better at GABP than MadBums fly ball tendencies right now.

    Don't know if the Reds or Keuchle are interested though.

    I'd love to be proven wrong, but Bumgarner just deosn't strike me as the type of guy that would accept a deal to come to Cincinnati.

    I’m guessing Mahle is just as good as Bumgarner these next few seasons.

    2 years tops but he will likely take his business elsewhere

    Now that Wheeler is off the market this is the pitcher who's a good fit for the Reds. Dal Us Please.
