Not Russ - What are your thoughts on Ramon Ortiz. Just a few years ago, he was called mini-Pedro.

What do you think? Is the guy worth taking a gamble on? He might be had for a pretty reasonable price.

Angels just traded him to the Reds.

Ortiz is moot now, but just one year ago Loaiza nearly won the Cy Young award for us. We should take a flyer on him before Ramon Ortiz or most of the other gambles people have suggested.

Article states he is arbitration eligible... Reds can sign him, or release him. We'll see what happens. I like his stuff though. A healthy, right handed kinda-sorta version of Scott Schoeneweis. Solid #5. Good plan B.
