Free agent rumors, Sarasota vote
I guess there's been rumors of free agents visiting the Reds cropping up on websites and in water cooler talk -- most prominently Carlos Silva. The people I talked to with the Reds shot down such such talk. It's against rules: Teams are not allowed to negotiate with or sign free agents -- other than their own -- until 16 days after the World Series.
John Allen doesn't expect to know the results of the referendum in Sarasota until 9 p.m. I'll post as soon as I know. I'm hoping it passes, purely for selfish reasons -- Sarasota is a great place to spend six weeks.
