    I was having a hard time placing who Ben Weber is, so I looked him up. He's got quite a kick!



    I'll be curious to see what kind of money Weathers and Weber will make.

    actually the Reds are going to keep a well stocked "mascot pen" this year. O'Brien felt that they were still too "one dimensional" even after the addition of "gapper" to longtime standby "Mr. Red", and was quoted as saying "with the obvious lack of quality in our starting pitching we felt that we needed to do something to keep fans in their seats during those 15-5 blow outs, as we have concessions quotas to meet, otherwise we 'll have to get rid of Pepsi/Coke and replace it with KK Cola."

    Weber was nails in the 2002 World Series. He was lights out. I hope he can return to that form. If so, we've just upgraded out bullpen TREMENDOUSLY. That's nice, because they are going to be worked.

    Wonder what's up with Mercker. If we can sign him as well, I'll be totally satisfied with the 'pen. (well, Danny is still here, but that's a given I'm willing to overlook)

    A couple more links to tell the Weber story. He is looking for a bounceback year, I'd be guessing he signed for about $500K-750K with some incentives.

    If the Angels need a strikeout, they'll summon Donnelly, Percival or Rodriguez. If they need a double play, Weber's their guy. His fastball added a little giddy-up with improved health, rising from 87-89 MPH in 2002 to 90-92 MPH last year. His out pitch is a nasty sinker, delivered by a guy who hides the ball amid flying elbows and a violently shaking head. He can field his position, and seven of nine runners trying to steal off him were thrown out.

    I like these signings... a definate improvement.

    I like both the signings - now I'd like a lefty to be added so Miley has some flexibility and then the bullpen becomes a positive (albeit a slight positive) rather than the huge negative it was last year.

    I'm hoping that DanO can package Riedling and Jimenez together for something. It would be nice if he got a lower level A lefty starter and a good bat in return, but I'll take anything at this point over him non-tendering them.

    I'm with ya Red Leader.

    I'm hoping that we're playing the same game that the Angels played with Ortiz. Appear to let him walk and then unload to a team afraid to take the risk at signing these two on the market.

    Is Weber the guy who got that real bad nosebleed?

    Indeed.

    Too bad we didn't get anything for him.
