John Fay has reported that Walt Jocketty said that the Reds are in discussions with Homer Bailey that will keep the Right-Hander a Cincinnati Red for years to come.
In the same tweet, Fay says that Jocketty plans to contact Latos about signing past his original contract that the Reds inherited when he came over from San Diego.
Fay also reported that Jocketty only plans on offering Ryan Ludwick a two year contract. But does not feel that it will get in the way of making a deal.
One of the reasons that Jocketty wants to sign Ludwick so bad is because he feels that the orgination needs "certainty with the roster".
The signing of Bailey and Latos would provide just that.
