    Reds add two to bolster bullpen

    By John Fay
    Enquirer staff writer

    The Reds added two pitchers to their bullpen today, signing veteran right-handers David Weathers and Ben Weber.

    Weathers, 35, signed a one-year deal with an option for 2006. Weber, also 35, signed a one-year deal.

    Weathers pitched for the New York Mets, Florida and Houston last season. He went a combined 7-7 with a 4.15 ERA. Weathers is a 14-year veteran. Before last season, he had a four-year run where he posted a 3.08 ERA or better.

    He pitched for the Reds in 1998, going 2-4 with 6.21 ERA.

    Weber spent last season with the Anaheim Angels. He struggled, going 0-2 with a 8.06 ERA. Like Weathers, he had a very effective stretch before 2004. He was 5-1 with a 2.69 ERA in '03, 7-2 with a 2.54 ERA in '02 and 6-2 with a 3.42 ERA in '01.

    Weathers made $3.9 million last year; Weber $900,000.

    Both are good signings, IMO.

    Reds Sign "Philly Phanatic"



    Published: December 15, 2004 (AP)

    The Reds today announced the signing of free agent mascot "philly phanatic" away from the city of Philadelphia. Reds General Manager Dan O'Brien said that this move was made on behalf of the "fans" and expressed hope that this would once and for all squash rumours about the Reds organizational commitment to winning, or lack thereof, and pleaded with all those that haven't yet to "for the love of god, buy season tickets before John Allen turns into a gargoyle". O'Brien also indicated that the "fanatic" would be renamed "Numbers the Accounting Clown" to better fit the image of the franchise.

    I like the signing of Weber. He had a great run with Anaheim before last season. If he can return to form, he'll be huge.

    The biggest problem with Weber is those glasses and the triple clutch with the glove. As long as his problems were not physical that are still present, he comes as one who fits the mold of a good, cheap gamble coming off a bad year but with recent success.

    Now I'm very concerned. What will happen to Gapper and Mr. Red? This organization has absolutely no loyalty whatsoever. First they dump the "Old Lefthander" like yesterday's trash. Then RedsFest was cancelled. Then Barry "The Icon" Larkin was disposed of with all the finesse of a mob hit. Now we lose Gapper and Mr. Red due to corporate greed! I will NEVER attend another Reds game again!
