Addition by subtraction. The Reds are a better team today.

...and I was so hoping we could sign Clayton to baseball's first Uber Spectacular Lifetime Longterm Lasting Forever Contract. However, I guess he will automatically be going to the Yankees with the rest of their all-star lineup.

Goodbye Royce, I'll try my hardest to rememer that time you hit a 2 run homer against the Braves to break up what was turning into Chuck James' no hit bid (the night after Maddux probably would have no hit us), and nothing more from your time here.

I hope if they don't resign Weathers that they plan on finding a good replacement. Weathers has been pretty dependable for the Reds.

Not trying to pretend I'm a stat guy because I'm not very good at it, but Weathers was "hit lucky" in 2006. His BABIP was .236 and if he pitches the same next year his results will likely be worse. Also, his time as closer and the shortage on the market may inflate his contract. If we get him back at the same price, I'd try him again. Any more money I'd put it somewhere else.

Clayton batted .258 with two homers and 40 RBIs, as well as 18 errors, in 137 games with the Nationals and Reds this season. Cincinnati acquired the 36-year-old in a July 13 eight-player trade that sent Felipe Lopez and Austin Kearns to Washington.

I agree. Al in all, he's been their best reliever over the last two seasons.
