In this little blurb from the OC Register, Reagins is quoted as ruling out basically every bat on the free agent market. So I would not hold your breath waiting for any kind of significant offensive improvement via free agency.
This of course does not rule out the trade market, but to be honest with you I do not see much out there. I doubt Fielder is in play, and I am thinking that the Votto rumor was the stupidest rumor I have heard in quite sometime.
What do you guys see as being available on the trade market?
