Wayne Krivsky

Here we go, pretty much the most exciting week of the offseason is upon us. I have no idea how much the Reds will be players this week, but I will admit that I have a faint hope that Castellini might shell out some money and surprise us.

It's not so much that I want Krivsky to go out and sign a big money free agent, because there really aren't too many of those left who are appealing. But I'm sure there are plenty of steals to be had via trade for teams willing to take on some payroll. That's where I'd like to see some payroll flexibility exercised.

There's just one player on my modest free agent wishlist, and that's Eduardo Perez. Perez is pretty solid against left handed pitching, and I think he'd be a great bat off the bench as well as a nice complement to Scott Hatteberg at first base.

Use this thread for any random winter meetings chatter, but feel free to start a separate diary should anything big happen.

What are you guys hoping for this week?
