After the non-tender list was revealed late Friday night, there were some names that the Reds could pursue. Among those that pique Cincinnati’s interest were outfielder Willy Taveras, utility player Ty Wigginton and infielder Aaron Miles.
“Miles, if we don’t sign [Jerry] Hairston,” Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said during a break from Redsfest on Saturday afternoon. “Wigginton if we don’t find the outfielder we want. Taveras could be the center fielder -type guy.”
None of those options make me want to go order season tickets, but it’s interesting to see inside Jocketty’s mind. We never would have heard a quote like this from Wayne Krivsky.
