So I had an out of the box thought strike me today...
Would Cueto be the better trade candidate for the Reds than Bailey?
I'm not sure of the answer to this question myself but it struck me immediately as a distinct possibility.
For one Cueto basically has two yrs on his contract and will be paid $10 per year. If healthy and back to form that seems like a bargain for Cueto. Is that enough to net an above avg return?

Go for it, Walt. It will prove that you’re still breathing.

In this blah-fest of an off-season, I felt that I needed to come up with some Reds-related things I'll be looking forward to in 2014, whether Walt surprises us with a last-minute big deal or not. So here we go, in no particular order, because I just decided to do this post and don't really know what I'm going to say.
1. Goodyear. No matter what, Goodyear is good. Arizona sun after/during an Ohio winter is nothing to sneeze at.
2. GABP. Again, no matter what, there are g... [More]
