Jon Morosi of Fox Sports tweeted that the Reds have the prospects to land Greinke, but may not need or want to. He notes that Bailey and Alonso could be part of the package, but the Royals already have a first baseman of the future.
John Fay writes about the very same rumors linking the Reds to Greinke. He thinks a package of Wood, Alonso, and Mesoraco would potentially be suicidal.
MLBTradeRumors addressed several Reds rumors involving a long-term deal for Votto, Brandon Webb, and Arthur Rhodes’ situation. The Reds are prepared to offer Votto, a multi-year deal, but no deal is imminent.
The Reds are really hoping that options begin to open up for them as the free agent market and hot stove cools off for the rest of the MLB. Last season they were able to sign Orlando Cabrera and Jonny Gomes very late in the offseason. Jocketty is taking a similar approach this season.
This is an exciting video with an ending that all Reds fans will remember! Jay Bruce wins the division for the Reds.
