Reds, Rangers, White Sox, Cardinals, none of them offered anything better than what this one year cushion provides?

    Unless the Reds are playing things really close to the vest with Castellanos I think this means the only chance for an upgrade is via trade for a SS. I mean, if they aren't beating 1 year at 18 million for Ozuna (who they were rumored to have been interested in) I don't see anyway they pick up Castellanos.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the Winker/Ervin platoon out produced Ozuna next year. My guess is that was the Reds thinking.

    Same here.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Ozuna needs to produce and he’ll get paid next year.

    Or is he Puig-lite, a guy whose reputation exceeds his performance?

    By Puig-lite I meant that he isn’t quite as “reputation” dependent.

    Ozuna is a better player than Puig (I don’t think I I made that clear in the prior post) but I still think he is overrated. JMO.

    I don’t know what this projection system is and it does seem fantasy driven...

    But Jesse looks good despite the low PA.

    Maybe he thinks Atlanta is a great fit and his best shot at a ring. It's not always about just the money. ATL has an elite offense, he's going to get a chance to have a huge year.

    Re: Reds Interested in Ozuna Per Heyman

    I wasn't in love with Ozuna by any means. I am somewhat concerned at this point though about the prospects, or lack thereof, of getting another big bat. As I'm one in the camp that Cincy still needs one more if they want to be legit contenders.

    There isn't much left in terms of the market beyond Castellanos. I don't see them going for Puig again. And it looks to me like Lindor and Seager aren't going to be moved.

    At this point I think it's more likely than not, say 70-30, that beyond someone like Brock Holt, they aren't landing what I think they need.

    Winker/Ervin is probably an easy bet to outproduce Ozuna, But Ozuna probably outproduces any of the other Reds outfielders. I wanted him for RF.

    With Ozuna’s arm in right field, base runners will go from first to home on a single to right.

    Could be right, I don't know about Ozuna's arm. I just think even if all he does is what he's done in the last two years, its a lot more more than I expect from Aquino offensively. I have higher hopes for Senzel, but no real expectations. No idea what to expect from Shogo, but if I had to make a prediction I'd say no more than a .750 OPS. The Reds offense still isn't ready to win.

    His arm is considered subpar for even LF.

    Looks like it's Castellanos or bust. Unless BROCK HOLT! is going to have a career year.

    We do need one more big bat to have a go at this, and I'm afraid we're done.
    I'm just going to go find a cash machine.
