Talking to Wayne
I talked to Wayne Krivsky this afternoon about free agency. Let's just say I didn't spent a lot of time transcribing quotes.
“We’ve had lots of conversations with a lot of agents,” Krivsky said. “But I’m not going to get into specifics.”
Is the depth pretty good as far as relievers?
“There always good players,” he said. “It’s up to us find a match.”
I mentioned that the Reds got of out the gate quickly last year, signing Alex Gonzalez on Nov. 20. So have the Reds targeted anyone this offseason – not naming names, of course?
“I’m not going to say. We’ll see,” he said.
I'm doing the Hot Stove League with the Steve "The Bad Boy" Stewart tonight from 6 to 7. I'll be able to share all that Krivsky told me with the vast listening audience.
There you have it.
My educated guess is the Reds are targeting relief pitchers. I think they'll at least find out where the bidding starts on Francisco Cordero. But, as you might guess, Krivsky wouldn't say whether they'd be in the market for a free agent closer.
