Per rotoworld: Orioles designated RHP Scott Williamson for assignment.

The Orioles seemed almost afraid to use Williamson, though his 4.40 ERA in 14 1/3 innings made him one of the team's most effective relievers. He's only due $450,000 over the rest of the season, so maybe they'll get a minor prospect for him before they'd have to release him.

I'm not saying we could use him, just throwing his name out for discussion.

I hope the Reds stay away from Williamson. His days of being an effective healthy reliever are long gone.

I agree...Greg Vaughn was also good back in '99. But I wouldn't stick him in the lineup today. :D Granted...it does just seem like yesterday that Willie was lighting it up as a rookie...his injuries were a shame.

him, along with Kevin Mitchell in LF, would be the answer to all our woes...

Wow, Willy's only 31. I thought he was mid-30's at least. Sure wish we could have the 1999-2002 version right about now.

112 innings of 149 ERA+ in 2000....wow!

Yankees signed Williamson

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/23/sports/baseball/23yankees.html?_r=2&ref=sports&oref=slogin&oref=slogin

The Yankees signed the veteran Scott Williamson to a minor league contract and activated him at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Williamson, the rookie of the year in 1999 when he was with the Reds, was designated for assignment by Baltimore on July 4. He was 1-0 with a 4.40 earned run average in 14 1/3 innings for the Orioles, walking eight and striking out 16. Against the Yankees in the 2003 American League Championship Series, Williamson saved all three of the Red Sox’ victories.

whats the definition of insanity? Doing the same 8th inning over and over again but expecting different results?


I would have given him a shot. Guess Steinbrenner agrees.
