Since he's already turned down the QO (as expected), I'd assume he's looking to make a little more than that
We're all hoping to make a little more. But it is starting to look like maybe the market won't bear it. If the Cubs are slashing $$$, maybe the Yanks and Dodgers will need to also? I'm more hopeful than I was a few weeks ago about the Reds retaining Bauer.

Cardinals join the Cubs and Brewers in the NL Central in stating their need to cut payroll.
You gotta really love baseball to be reading about it and posting this at 5am. I saw the post about the Cubs was at 2am the other day. Are you in Europe? Or maybe you are a vampire? If so, don't change your Yappi name to Vamps2. You are a much more informed poster than that guy, and you don't need to be associated with him.

He will make more than $19M. Clubs will still spend the money on talent and cut positions elsewhere in their organizations.

LMAO at wolves going to the Mods to get my perfectly accurate posts deleted 😂
OK, I typically ignore your posts because they are always negative and never interesting. But I have to respond to this.

A) I have not had any exchanges with you on Yappi for months, so not sure what post you refer to
B) I have no idea how to "go to the Mods"
C) Literally no one cares what you have to say
D) Why would I waste my time?

A) Pretty sure it wasn't months ago that you said you were going to put me on ignore
B) Sure you do and if not you're not very bright
C) Why did you answer 🤷‍♂️
D) I'm sure all you have is time 😂

James McCann could be an interesting upgrade at Catcher. He could likely be had for $3-5M. It would likely require moving Barnhart in a trade as well as Casali. A move like this would save the Reds money as well as upgrade the position offensively at least.

I always had the impression that McCann could hit, but I checked and it was a mistaken impression. Career .249 BA, .300 OBP, .694 OPS. Only one year above 15 HR. I don't want to wreck the great pitcher/catcher chemistry the Reds have for a minor upgrade on offense like that. Casali is actually a better HR per AB, OBP and OPS guy than McCann.

Reports by the Athletic say the Reds are open to trading Sonny Gray.

Another report says the Ray's are open to offers for Blake Snell (3 yrs/$39m).

Hopefully the Reds are just gauging the market to determine what teams are willing to pay for a front line starters in order to make a comparable offer for Snell without over paying.
