    I do.
    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.

    Yea, he's a hustle, grit guy that Reds fans like (guilty as charged), but I'm guessing he only projects as a backup MLB OF at this point.

    Probably projects to a ceiling of a LH hitting, poor man's version of Ryan Freel or Chris Stynes.

    Reds take 1 in MLB phase, lose none in that phase.
    Reds take 2 in MiLB phase, lose 2 in that phase.

    So the financial end of the minor league draft is a wash - $48K out, $48K in.

    Good for Reds on Friedl. If comes back and produces, he's ours....

    He also didn't log a full season of at bats in that span. Assuming there might be some health issues at play?
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    I suspect Friedl wouldn't mind spending a few years in the majors like Freel and Stynes did.
