RHM looks at some speculation that Rich Aurilia may not exercise his contract option to return to the Reds. I’d hate to see the guy go, but I wouldn’t lose any sleep over it. He’s in the decline phase of his career, though he has performed fairly well for the Reds for most of the last two years.

UPDATE: RHM has more speculation on the Aurilia sweepstakes, if one can call it that.
