    Aurilia: 1 year, $1.3M, $2M option...

    per Marc...

    In the fold

    Rich Aurilia will be back with the Reds this season. He agreed tonight to a one-year, $1.3 million deal that also carries a mutual option for 2007 at $2 million. Not sure about a buyout.

    That's a pretty good rate for the Reds, considering the market. Now we'll see if the roster stays put or this is a precursor to another deal.

    It's official, Dan O'Brien's an idiot. When you can get a draft pick for Rich Aurilia, you take a draft pick for Rich Aurilia.

    The Womack signing made his idiocy official for me.

    Dan O probably thinks he got Rich over someone else

    Truth being..nobody else wanted him.

    Over Womack? Good

    Over Free?l Nope

    Over EE? Downright criminal.

    How did the firings go, Mr. Castellini?
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
