08:12 AM ET 12.31 | Arthur Rhodes' gain is, in a way, the Reds' gain, too. [Walt] Jocketty said the Reds' offer to Rhodes was similar to the one Rhodes signed the Rangers. That would indicate the Reds have about $4 million to spend. "What we're looking for is veteran outfielder, preferably a left-handed hitting outfielder and an infielder who can back up at shortstop," Jocketty said. Jocketty confirmed that the Reds had spoken to agents for both Scott Podsednik and Edgar Renteria.

Podsednik is a good clubhouse guy that can help out some of those youngert players. He spent several years with the Brewers and is familiar with the NL Central. I loved having Scottie Pods on our team and hated trading him. He'd be a good addition. He brings professionalism, hustle, and good defense. He'd probably be a fourth outfielder, but he'd be great in Cincy.

Sidebar: don't forget about that dude who plays 1st base, he won an MVP this season. He's a freakin steal right now, but give him the respect soon.

Just be careful what you offer Rent...he may get offended.

Both are hardworking players who know how to play. Good signs for a low budget team.
