Does it give the Reds more roster spots? Sorry, I don't really understand all of these front office terms.
Basically, they didn't offer them major league contracts for 2013, which allowed them to become free agents. Then they turned around and resigned them to Minor League deals, which took them off the 40 man roster. Yes, it gives them 2 extra spots on the 40 man roster.

I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.
Some people are Optimists (They see the glass 1/2 full).
Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.
