This is a no-brainer, of course, but some decisions coming out of Cincinnati over the last couple of years (and the last couple of days) have also been no-brainers, but in a different sense.
I didn't expect that, if the option wasn't picked up, we'd get him--in large part because he probably would've gotten Carlos Lee money, if not a bit more. But still, it's too bad that he's off the market. That means everybody who is on the market is a bit more expensive. And since we're potentially in the market for a left fielder, that's not great news for the Brewers.
