This is because signing a CF for a bunch of money, when you can probably just go with a collection of cheaper players being rotated (or maybe Senzel) for a year or two until Trammell is ready, would be insane. Especially one that lacks OBP skills and is on the wrong side of 30. Might as well have just continue to see if you can find lightning in a bottle with Hamilton. The biggest question is what should the Reds really do and how should they do it?Do you spend money just for the sake of spending money because your owner made a statement? Eh, well, no. A smart team shouldn’t and wouldn’t, and I’m still in the belief that Williams and Krall are pretty smart dudes.I think all the rumors being floated about are because Williams and Krall are fully in control, and they’re running things their way. Which means they’re being active and keeping all doors open. That’s what a good front office does. Nothing is off limits until it truly is. Having talks with Pollock now, opens up the possibility of getting him cheaper later on if his market falls. Having talks about Greinke, Kluber, and Keuchel make sense to get things done during the Winter Meetings or right after. You should have as many logs in the fire as possible. Keep that stove warm until you make the decision on which deal to jump at. These rumors are positives for the Reds and the fans because it shows they’re putting the work in, they’re serious, and we can expect something. However Edgar Martinez Jersey , what is too much for this team? Can they end up trying to do too much?First, they do need to get a pitcher, at least one. It needs to be someone that you feel is reliably a #2 or #3 if you can pull it off. Ideally, that would be Keuchel because that costs nothing in the terms of prospects. It’s only money, a lot of money, but money just the same. But it also shouldn’t stop the Reds from spending prospects if they feel they can swing Kluber or Greinke, and get that #1. In fact, that would just be awesome. In the end, getting a quality starter and just pushing to shore up the bullpen even more (Soria) would go a long way. The offense can continue to survive with low price signings for depth and by relying on young players to fill in the gaps. The offense has never been the reason the Reds were failing. Relying on Ervin, Senzel, Schebler, and possibly even Peraza in spurts, in center field makes sense as long as it saves money and it’s used for “the pitching”. Signing Pollock is counter-intuitive to getting “the pitching”. Sure Ryon Healy Jersey , the defense is a drop off without Hamilton, but not a big enough drop off with the gains you should have on offense with just about anyone else.There is no reason to sell the whole farm, or to spend all the money, if the right/smart moves are made. While we want to be better, and possibly win in 2019, this can’t be a break the bank or Hail Mary situation for Williams and company because of desperation. Make stable and sound investments in this team, don’t go for broke. That’s how good teams are built and built for the long run. There’s more talent on this team than people give them credit for, but something has to happen with the pitching and that’s where the majority of the dollars should go. No matter how much is available.That much is apparent, and I’ll be looking forward to what happens in the next week and month. I expect the Reds to be busy, but let’s hope they’re not aggressive just to prove a point. Don’t ruin the rebuild because Bob Castellini and/or the fan base is disgruntled and you feel the need for a major push. The rebuild has been hard enough but not a failure. Spending some of that banana stand money is probably in the works, but it needs to be spent smartly and not lavishly. Raising payroll only makes sense if it’s being raised for positive value and that means wins. Moves that make the Reds a .500 team and not a playoff contender will be a waste and result in another decade of obscurity. That’s how I see a speculative AJ Pollock signing.Winter Meetings can be a beautiful thing because of unmitigated excitement that comes with it. If the Reds go all out and sign Keuchel and trade for Kluber, I’ll probably be shouting from the roof tops that it’s the coolest damn thing they’ve ever done. Actually, that would be the coolest damn thing they’ve done and if it blows up in their face http://www.marinersfanproshop.com/authe ... nez-jersey , I wouldn’t even care. It’s scary as hell, and flies in the face of what I said above, but that’s the right kind of chucking it deep. By no means should they, or should we expect it, but if Dick Williams firmly believes it’s the thing that sets them over the top, they should just go for it. If not, keep the status quo and keep growing. God, that would be so cool.Go Reds! They’re my favorite team! They’ve got pitchers, outfielders, and first baseman aplenty."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Brewers Rumors and SpeculationConversation StartersWPA Game RecapsTransactionsLatest NewsMLB Trade RumorsBrewers Rumors and SpeculationTeams are inquiring about trading for some of the Milwaukee Brewers depth piecesNew,24commentsThey’ve got pitchers, outfielders, and first baseman aplenty.for nearly two months http://www.marinersfanproshop.com/authe ... nez-jersey , and by the time he returned Jesus Aguilar has usurped the starting job at the cold corner on his way to an All-Star appearance. Thames played a little in the outfield and though he doesn’t really pass the eye-test out there on defense, advanced metrics viewed him positively on the grass. He struggled to adapt to a part-time role and saw his playing time diminish down the stretch, ultimately finishing with a .219/.306/.478 batting line and 16 homers in 278 plate appearances.The Brewers are reportedly in the market for a top of the rotation starter, but they also have plenty of starting pitching depth from which they could look to deal from in the right situation. Chase Anderson is the top candidate here after losing his rotation spot down the stretch and getting left off the playoff roster. A change of scenery might do Anderson some good after he coughed up 30 home runs last year, and his $6 mil salary places him alongside Jhoulys Chacin as the highest-paid starting pitcher currently on the roster. It would also make sense for the Brewers to gauge interest in arb-eligible starters Zach Davies and Junior Guerra, and the names Brandon Woodruff, Corbin Burnes, and Freddy Peralta come up anytime there is speculation about the Brewers going after an “ace” in trade.Statistics courtesy of Fangraphs
