Heck Saturday the Braves designated C.J. Nitkowski for assignment we could sign him to a minor league contract too!!! He's an ex-red and a LHP, we'll corner the market on LHP relievers and the top teams we'll have to come to the Reds for a LHP reliever at the trading deadline!!
Please, Please Mr. O'Brien don't sign LHP Jimmy Anderson who was disignated for assignment by the Cubs on Saturday too. We can't afford what he eats, he's a true 5-tool player. He has a knife, fork, spoon and two plates!!
You're being facetious, but it would be the right course to take. Pick up guys like Leskanic when they're cheap. For every two or three you pick up, one will be good. We're not giving up top prospects for these guys, anyway.
