    This is certainly welcome news. Hopefully the Reds start to be players in the latin market like everyone else. The article mentions Malvin Valdez and Ariel Almonte.

    Do the 7 figures include the pennies?

    They gave away a Joey Votto Funko a year or two ago. A George Clinton Funko has to exist somewhere, though, if there's any justice.

    Ariel Almonte, OF Dominican Republic

    The Reds are linked to two Dominican outfielders expected to be among the highest paid players in the 2020 class. One is Malvin Valdez, an athletic, tooled-up player who still has some rawness to his game. The other is Almonte, a 6-foot-4 lefty whose price tag looks to be in the $1.5 to $2 million range. Almonte has a short stroke for his size with good pitch recognition and easy power. His plus arm should fit in right field. He trains with German.

    Malvin Valdez and Ariel Almonte would be huge. Potentially almost as high ceiling as Yorman Rodriguez & Juan Doran.

    Juan Doran was Bill Doran's cousin if I recall correctly....
    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.

    Interestingly, both are grandsons of Ryne Duren.
