Please tell me the Reds are working on a trade with SF for Hernandez.  
It would be foolish for arb to be offered to Hernadez, who would be crazy to turn it down at his age.  He could be awarded a high amount and it be would be a waste of resources for the Reds.  Unless there is some under the table agreement for him NOT to accept arb and then sign a minor league contract.

Padres have backed themselves into a corner on Bell. They HAVE to sign him or they get NOTHING for him when he walks.

He has already said he WILL accept arbitration if offered and his comps are in the $12-13 million range.
