Weekend Reposter - When will the Reds strike?

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

BtBS has an analysis of Allen Craig as a potential bounceback guy

It seems like the perfect storm for the Reds. The Sox need to get rid of an outfielder (or two), Allen Craig would be a good buy-low guy for Walt Jocketty, and he's a guy who performed well in St. Louis, so it stands to reason that he's a guy who Walt (and Bob) look upon favorably. I think we could do better than Craig, but we could also do a lot worse.

Fangraphs has a little ditty about Nick Howard

Nick talks about his experience in the AFL, and touches on the Reds using the AFL in an unorthodox way. I'll agree with that. Let's hope it pays dividends with Lorenzen contributing to the 2015 roster.

In case you missed it, the Jays got Josh Donaldson

I'm not sure anyone really even knew that he was available. This has had me thinking, though. Could the Reds pull something like this off? Can we see the Reds going out and getting a "value guy who doesn't really fit into their system but they'd make room for"? I'd love to hear your thoughts below.
