Just posting a new starter because the last one was closed.
I know the Reds lost out on Seth Smith, but that doesn't bother me. Please note that Seattle is probably going to use Smith as a platoon player. His career splits against lefties: .205/.291/.314. I don't think that makes him an ideal candidate to bat in the 2-hole in front of Votto.
Talbert, I understand your concern about Aoki being the "leftover" that no one else wanted--but that's because he's not as good a fit for other... [More]

Here it is just about Christmas, the Bengals had a big win last night and once again appear to be playing well leading into the playoffs. Will Bengals fans be disappointed again this year?

I'm giving the first 3 spots to Cueto, Bailey, Leake btw.
Here's who is in the running:
Anthony DeSclafani,Tony Cingrani, Raisel Iglesias, David Holmberg, Daniel Corci... [More]

I thought I'd add a new thread since the last one is getting long and old.
I assume that Walt cleared up salary room in the Latos and Simon deals so he could pursue a free agent LF. The targets have always been Aoki and Morse. So which would you prefer?
While I've been lobbying for Aoki here (love his .350 OBP and low K rate), I remember two LONG home runs Morse hit at GABP last year. I think he could mash in this park. And his .334 career OBP isn't that far behind Aoki's. Most of all, he coul... [More]

Just noticed that the prior thread was closed to comments.
Two threads earlier on RO appears to be partially hijacked as the ST schedule actually shows up when you open the thread, but just looking at the home page with the starters showing has this (I thought RedFaced was on something )
