Signing on to Success?

December 11, 2010

The big news of the week hot stove-wise for the Reds was the signing of Jay Bruce to a 6 year, $51 million dollar contract.

This is good.  Publicly, it looks more and more as if Joey Votto will only get a 3-year deal and Johnny Cueto is on the verge of signing a contract as well.  One of the biggest fears is that “the core” will bolt for  free agency and the Reds will be left with undeveloped prospects playing in the bigs again.

The signing of Bruce and talks of similar extensions for studs Votto and Cueto will ensure we won’t have to worry about that, at least for the near future.
