These are two players who have gotten some mention in the local press as potential acquisitions. I'm not so convinced, but I thought I'd bring them up to the RR intelligentsia. A couple of notes on both players:
Some have said that they don't want Holliday because of the Coors effect, but I'm not buying that as a reason. His power drops a bit away from Coors, but that should be less of an issue coming to GABP. Even with the dip in power, he's still posted lines of .301/.374/.485 and .308/.405/.486 on the road the last two years. He'd still be the Reds best hitter with those numbers.
I honestly don't have a whole lot of interest in Magglio Ordonez, but I thought he was a good juxtaposition to Holliday. As you can see, he'd probably be a defensive liability in LF and his contract is only attractive if he's not healthy - if that makes sense. The good news is that his availability is primarily because the Tigers want to dump some salary, so hopefully it wouldn't cost too much to acquire him. Still though, I'm not sure he's worth it.
What do you think? Do either of these guys interest you for LF next season? Who would you be willing to trade to get them?
