Matthews or Sheff, anyone?
Here’s my question of the day, based on some news/rumors:
First, the rumor. It’s been reported that, at least at some point, the Reds and Angels talked about a trade that would bring Gary Matthews Jr. to Cincinnati for either Aaron Harang or Bronson Arroyo. Not sure if that’s been discussed lately, but I’m efforting to find that out. It’d be a fairly even salary swap, for those wondering.
The news is that the Tigers released Gary Sheffield today. Another team can sign him for the minimum as the Tigers still owe him his $14 million salary for the year.
So with this information, if you were the GM of the Reds, would you go after either of these players to bolster the outfield situation? Leave your comments at the beep.
