Bill Bavasi talks Reds at a fundraising dinner


Lots of good stuff in this article, but given the nature of the discussion here recently, I'll draw your attention to one specific part. This is what Bavasi said when asked about Aroldis Chapman: "A decision has not been made, but I think it is going to be impossible to get him out of the bullpen," said Bavasi. "You build your pitching staff from the back to the front - if we can shut you down in the eighth and ninth innings, you aren’t going to beat us. Aroldis is killing people out of the bullpen and we’re OK with with what we have for starters," Bavasi added. "And Arolidis is not going to be able to throw 105 miles an hour as a starter." I know Bavasi isn't Walt, but I also think this is exactly what a lot of us are afraid of.

Reds interested in Fred Lewis


I've gone on record as saying I like this idea. He has a .280/.354/.442 career line against righties, and the team that signs him would have control of him for 3 years, if they so desired. Since he was non-tendered, and would only be in his first arb year, he'll be pretty cheap too. Beats the hell out of Old Man Podsednik

It's time for the 3rd Annual Community Prospect Rankings!

John Sickels' Top 20 Reds Prospects for 2011


A usual suspect is at the top. He has some interesting takes on guys 4-10.

Arroyo's Deferred Money


Ken Rosenthal has details of Arroyo's deferred money. The upshot? Arroyo only makes $6.5 million in 2011, and accounting for all the deferred money, the actual value of the contract is only about $28.5 million. It's actually a really creative contract, and makes me feel much better about it. Go read about it.

Reds add 4 to the 40-man. Roster stands at 37


They added Kris Negron, Daryl Thompson, Todd Frazier, and Zack Cozart. Notable players left off were Danny Dorn (again), Scott Carroll, Jordan Hotchkiss, and Jeremy Horst.
