The Linebrink deal looking more and more like a bargain, and once again I wonder how much Bobby is going to command.

Damn, yeah, glad that's not happening anytime soon.

See, Otis knew the Reds were looking for a pitcher.

There's also an option for a 5th year.

This is a terrible contract for a team that doesn't seem like it will contend anytime soon.

You sure about that?

*Cough* NL Central *Cough*

If they got a SP or 2, they wouldn't be looking too shabby. They have a lot of young talent that should be making their way to the majors in the next year or 2.

Wow.

Exactly....Not only can Cinci win that division, with the talent they have in their system that is ready, now, they have a very reasonable chance of contending for all 4 years of this deal in that crappy division.

I didn't see that one. My bad.

Still... way too much money for a moron. Sounds similar to moves made by another NL Central team...

See, Otis knew the Reds were looking for a pitcher.The Legend of Otis compounds. It's unreal. He should be employed by the government to predict earthquakes, asteroid impacts, comet impacts, supervolcano megaeruptions, reversals of the magnetic field of the planet. What the hell. I'm sure he could determine whether the Ekpyrotic theory of the origin of the Universe is correct. He can't be explained by science. He's a prophet.

He turned down 4/42 from the Brewers which also gave an option for a 5th year. So, for an extra $1M per year he left a young, competitive team to go to Cincinnati. This really was all about the money!

Does this mean Turnbow takes over the Milwaukee closer job again?

I'm not sure how this helps CIN. Weathers got 33 saves for a **** team, so does adding him make them better?

They need starters, not an unpredictable, over-priced reliever.

Considering how brutal their bullpen was last season yes it does help them by moving Weathers to set up.

But your right their main priority should have been a starter.

I assume the crew is out looking for another closer. Possibly the other Cordero from Washington?

Exactly. This was a good move by the Reds. Their bullpen has been brutal for the better part of the last 3 years now.

As far as starters go, they're waiting to see how Homer Bailey will turn out. He did have a rocky start, but if he becomes anything, him, and Harang, will be a solid 1-2 punch at the front of the rotation.

How far away is Bailey? If he pans out, and the Reds still have Arroyo, that's a pretty good 1-3 by NLC standards.

Bailey should be ready to go this year. He had some problems last year, but there's no way they can keep this guy in a bubble in AAA again. He's MLB-ready.

He was called up in June and finished the year with a 4-2 record, but he had an ugly 5.76 ERA. He had his good days and bad days. He got sent down for a little bit in July, but he got called back up in September. His 2007 season tells us so little though, so we'll have to wait and see how he does in '08.

Mil needs to wake up, Dusty and crew might overcome them. Okay, that's a bit much, but I think Mil started off badly just by bringing back their head coach.

That is a horrible contract. Luckily we won't have to give Bobby something like this for a few years, but it's coming, whether we like it or not.
