About the offseason–I find it really interesting that the Reds didn’t part with Ramon Hernandez this summer. It seems to suggest that they will indeed offer him arbitration; given Mesoraco’s obvious readiness and the fact the Reds control Hanigan (I believe) at reasonable cost, Walt is prepared to go into the winter with those 3 guys under control, if Ramon accepts arb. To me, the only explanation for this is that he plans to trade a package of big-leaguers or ML-ready kids for an elite player, probably a starting pitcher (Shields, etc.). If Ramon accepts, he’s got the trade chip; if not, two picks. I’m guessing this was his gamble, and I think it’s oriented toward a winter trade.
