Even the Reds couldn't kill his career apparently.

from rotoworld:

Cubs signed LHP Mike Stanton, INF Luis Rivas, OF Jason Dubois and OF So Taguchi to minor league contracts and invited them to spring training.

The Reds ate $3.5 million to dump Stanton last year, and the 41-year-old left-handed ended up sitting out the season. Now he's back to try to add to his 1,178 major league appearances. It's quite unlikely that he'll make the Cubs.

Oh my! Grateful that he is gone.

I hope we get to face him.

I'd have thought they'd sign him to at least a 2 year deal. :D

Soft tossing lefty...

He'll own us.

5 or 6 years or go, three of those guys would have cost a fair amount of money together...
