Reds on the Web: 11/19/11

The week always presents things that may have gotten past us (or, maybe not) over the course of five days.

Here’s a few that I pulled from the interwebs that struck a chord in some form or another. Some present ideas, some may provoke chatter, some may initiate squabble. Any way you cut it, they are all worthy of a little conversation.

Here’s the past week involving the Reds on the web!


I heard this on Channel 12 the other day, too. So many teams looking for Coco’s services? Really? I find that just a little hard to believe. With Jonathan Papelbon heading to Philly, the closer market increased in value. For those Reds fans hoping for a Cordero return, you might not get that under your tree this upcoming Christmas.

Sorry I brought that up…

Although, the Reds are thought to still be in the hunt.


What better way to prepare for the 2012 season than attending Redsfest. If you didn’t catch who was going to grace it with their presence, here’s John Fay’s post about those that will.


This post grabbed my attention right away for two reasons: the Reds are still presumed to be in the market for a closer (see Monday) and the name Rich Harden, the oft-injured pitcher with all the talent in the world. I see where the author of this piece is going, too.

Maybe that’s a scary sign…


I know this has probably done a million times already, but you simply can’t have enough fun projecting the Reds roster for 2012. Take into account that these projections are based on what is currently on the team, and it really seems like it’s too easy to do.

Or is it?

This make take on a different look after the winter meetings…or maybe not.


I find this post from Yahoo!’s Scoop du Jour not the least bit surprising. It’s widely thought that Brandon Phillips is seeking a deal in between what the Braves gave to Dan Uggla (five years, $62 million) and Rickie Weeks (four years, $38.5 million). While progress was “made”, not sure the Reds are willing to go four years, maybe two with an option, or three at most.
