    Yep, I breathed a sigh of relief when the Reds didn't sign him.
    I wish him well, but it was just too risky.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I know he had a few bad outings late in the year, but I'm really surprised that the Angels are so jittery about handing the closer reigns to Frieri. That guy is filthy, and I'd have much more confidence in him than a post-surgery Madson.
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    I was interested in re-signing him, but my perspective has changed on post-injury signings. On the "Sign Brian Wilson" thread I stated as much. Seems like a team rehabs the guy and then he goes elsewhere. And they usually don't give you much in that rehab season anyway. It's not worth it.
