    Ryan Franklin signs 1-year contract with Philly....

    Anyone got the "real" numbers on this guy...since W-L record and ERA is no longer the "true" measure of a SP value?

    I thought this guy would be worth at least a 1 year look, but i guess all these bottom feeders start looking the same after a while.

    28 homers in 190.2 IP in Seattle last year. he should challenge Milton for the home run title.

    In 2005, Ryan Franklin posted a 5.10 ERA, a 1.44 WHIP, and a miserable 93/62 K/BB ratio in 190 innings.

    Pitching at Safeco field.

    And he was taking steroids.

    Triple yak.

    I don't often agree with Bill Conlin, but he called Franklin one of the worst 5 starting pitchers who consistently get starts. Over the past 2 years, he might be right.
    ". . . 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

    He got beat like a rented mule in Seattle. That could get bad ugly in Philly.

    Glad to see the Reds weren't involved here. Wouldn't have been an upgrade to this staff... and that says a lot.
