    Obviously, Otani doesn't care about the money or he would have waited 2 years. He cost himself almost $200 million to come now. The most he is going to get is the $3 million bonus pool money and league minimum. Reds still don't have a chance though, but it would be sweet to get him for $300k and league minimum for a few years.

    Saw on twitter that a factor could be that Otani may prefer a place without a previous Japanese star. The fact they are even going for it tells me they must actually think they have a chance.

    Giants & Reds Involved in Serious Discussions on Billy Hamilton Trade

    As much as I enjoy watching Billy play, hopefully a deal can be struck.

    Should have pulled this trigger 2 plus years ago, MLB has seen what Billy is now and will price him accordingly.

    The Reds signed reliever Jared Hughes to a 2 year deal.

    He's been pretty good. Should be a nice addition.

    When he's on he gets lots of ground balls.

    Contract details look pretty solid. Certainly a setup from a few guys last year.

    I'm gonna beat Plantman to the punch:

    "Is it 'clutch' to get a walk in the 7th inning down 3 runs when the Reds need a 3R HR?"

    If you see one or less pitches to hit in an at bat... no one is letting Votto beat them late in game. Only a handful will go after him late in game and they are throwing 100 +.

    Was he the guy that got into it with Brandon Phillips when he pitched for the Pirates?
    Brandon said he heard him call him a name. Talked about him being racist or something
