    A.J.Pierzynski DFA'd by Red Sox...is he worth a chance

    Never liked his attitude, but the guy can hit. Is he worth a shot?

    I'd pass. His numbers are way down and he is soon 38. There is the attitude thing which wouldn't dissuade me under other circumstances but combined with age nd production - no thanks.

    Nope. He hasn't hit at all this season, and he isn't thought of as the best catcher around. He really wouldn't fill any void the Reds have.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    If we still had Dusty I'd say yes.

    Pass

    Earlier this season he was tossed from a game after he asked the ump to give him a new ball, one that the ump might be able to see

    Don't see where he could bring all that much to the table.

    That may be one of the best things I have ever read.

    Yeah, I didn't mind his attitude at all, he just isn't good at anything on the field anymore, except hitting into double plays, he's really good at that.

    Nah. Then I'd have to remember how to spell his name correctly. We have enough trouble with Kluszewski.

    This isn't the lost decade anymore. We don't pick up other teams' castoffs in hopes they'll redeem themselves. That hardly ever worked anyway.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg
