Well, we now have blogs here on BBF and I might as well get into the action. As many of you know, I am a Reds fan and so far, this offseason for the Reds has been active.

The hiring of manager Dusty Baker was not exactly who I was looking for in a manager. I had really hoped the Reds could get a big name and bring back excitement to the Riverfront (exciting here up on the hills but nothing good happening down there).

Now, I wish that the Reds would trade Alex Gonzalez. It is someone not mentioned often but I like the way Jeff Keppinger has been playing and I am sure some teams would trade a decent pitcher for a great shortstop. As for a backup, I'm sure Jorge Cantu and Brandon Phillips could fill in.

I believe the Reds should also try to sign Jae Seo to a minor league contract. He has shown signs of greatness but is on the low end of the stick right now. Seo could be a valuable player to have in the wings.

Another person the Reds should try to get is Josh Fogg. Fogg has done a decent job in an already hitting friendly ballpark. I think he could fit very well in the GABP.
