    If he leaves, at least Dick Williams rolled the dice. I appreciate that.

    Re: Bauer should leave the Reds

    The Dodgers will come for him. I do not think Bauer is the type of guy to make an emotional decision, and he knows his time as a pro athlete is limited.....hence I expect the last two games demonstrated to him how far off the Reds are from contending. He knows there are about 25 other teams he could go to and pitch at the same level...but collect more W's. I think our chances of keeping him are less than 10%, and the situation would be if teams tightened their spending this offseason because of the COVID season which resulted in him signing a one year deal with the Reds. The Reds should give it their best effort, because he is the best player on the team and I do not think it is close.

    a hitter like Ozuna is what we need. We do not need another OF'er, so we would have to move some pieces, but Ozuna is the exact type of hitter this lineup is missing. A guy that crushes HR's, drive runs in, and also hits for average.

    But is the really what the Reds need? They were OBP, contact and defense deficient this season and I really don't think Ozuna moves the needle in that way.

    I think everyone touting money as the reason for him leaving is going to be dead wrong.

    Re: Bauer should leave the Reds

    Why, really, would he want to play for this team again? They had like two good weeks in the year+ he was here and this is not a team that looks like it's about to add 15 wins to the .500 team that it is. Why tie yourself to this group?

    So you are assuming the team won't try and add pieces this offseason? They did last year and the year before, so why would this offseason be any different?

    Because the Reds and Bauer are both at the forefront of pitching technology, analytics, etc. Bauer has stated a desire to play for an organization like that.

    Re: Bauer should leave the Reds

    What is a Current Cy Young Award winner in his prime worth?

    I'm guessing $500 Million for 8 years.

    What human being could turn that down if it was offered, and we know there are some teams out there who would offer something like it?

    Re: Bauer should leave the Reds

    I'd like to have him stay and I'd also like it if Nick Lodolo = Left handed Ian Anderson. And in the Reds seemingly endless process of saying "we'll get 'em in two years", they might be thinking exactly that. But I'm less worried about losing Bauer than I am about the Reds finding an Acuna, a Freeman, a Tatis Jr. to anchor the club.

    Going into a very uncertain future with Covid next year IMO many will be surprised how low some of the FA offers will be. Bauer is likely going to be better off taking a massive 1 year deal and going into 2022 season as a FA again. I assume that offer was a joke, but I think teams are going to be very reluctant to be throwing around $200M offers.
