Black Friday Reds Links & Notes


Happy (Black) Friday to all! I hope everyone had a safe and blessed Turkey Day. For the small crowd who isn't out shopping right now, here are some good Reds-related links to help cure your post-Thanksgiving hangover. Dig in!

* Reliever Bill Bray, the team's union representative, recently weighed in on his thoughts pertaining to the labor agreement between MLB and the Players' Association. Link.

* The following piece on bleacherreport.com outlines "5 Reasons the Reds Should Re-Sign Ramon Hernandez". I disagree with their opinion personally, but it's still an interesting and rather short read nevertheless.

* Hal McCoy of FOXSportsOhio.com breaks down the barrage of offseason rumors swirling around the team in this post.

* Budding star Yonder Alonso will be on hand to help celebrate the new location of Champions Baseball Academy next weekend. For more details visit this link.

* The Hall of Fame Class of 2012 will be announced next Monday. To see the list of candidates and other details follow this link.

* Red Reporter also produced a piece filled with many reasons to be thankful for as a Reds fan. You can read it here.

* Among the notable arbitration offers made by NL Central foes include: Derrek Lee (Pirates), Carlos Pena & Aramis Ramirez (Cubs), Edwin Jackson & Albert Pujols (Cardinals), and Prince Fielder & Francisco Rodriguez (Brewers).

* Among the notable offers declined by NL Central foes include: Ryan Ludwick & Chris Snyder (Pirates), Kerry Wood (Cubs), Rafael Furcal & Arthur Rhodes (Cardinals), and Yunkiesy Betancourt (Brewers).
