Reds seek right-handed bat

Here is an interesting article from John Paul Morosi of following the Mark DeRosa trade.

I've been advocating for the Holiday trade for some time. I also like the Lugo idea. I mentioned Gary Matthews, Jr., previously, but I can't see the Reds taking on that contract (nor should they) or the Angels eating most of it. As far as I know, Wilson Betemit is still available. I think he would be a cheap option and well worth the risk. He can play anywhere (although I'm not sure he's a good outfielder) and is a switch hitter.

I would like to see the Reds get Willingham if Washington will deal him. He had a great year last year with FLA but is stuck behind Dunn now.
