This was a freak show of a performance by Guillen. Plain and simple. And don't tell me you haven't seen lots of players have big contract years only fall on thier arse the very next year.
It happens all of the time.
I'm not sure Harang is going to be a savior. How could we know the answer? I do like the fact that he's 25, major league ready, and has something of an upside.
What did the Reds have before they CLAIMED GUILLEN OFF OF WAIVERS? Certianly not Harang and Joe Valentine. That turned out to be a pretty good waiver wire claim.

I have come to expect those types of scenarios with the Cardinals and it makes me sick." - Lidspinner
