    Reds sign Frankie Menechino

    Per Rotoworld, to a minor-league deal. This just has to be for AAA, although Menechino might be a better use of a roster spot than Tony Womack.

    "Shut Up Frankie" is colorful and gets on base. I've seen conflicting stuff about his glove.

    ---
    How many second basemen does a team need? The Reds now have Ryan Freel, Rich Aurilia, Menechino, Ray Olmedo, Anderson Machado, Will Bergolla, Ron Oester, Jeff Treadway, Kurt Stillwell... and Tony Womack. Menechino probably won't be kept unless the Reds trade an outfielder, making both Freel and Aurilia regulars.
    ---

    EDIT: Also catcher Steve Torrealba, who's been out injured (ACL) since four games in to the 2004 season. He's actually just 28, although he can't really hit. I suppose he hits better than Dane Sardinha, although if that isn't damning with faint praise I don't know what is.

    What in the world is going on?

    Menechino and Olmedo would have been just as productive as Womack and Aurilia.

    Not to mention cheaper.

    Again....

    I thought signing Dunn long term was the number one priority after the first of the year.

    His entire tenure has been a waste of time when it isn't a complete disaster.

    Why? Can Dunn play second base?

    Good idea. I hear he got to second base when he was only twelve plus he's got good connections(wink wink) if you know what I mean.

    Apparently the idea is to create a Frankenstein's monster at 2B:

    Womack's speed + Menechino's plate discipline + Aurilia's power + Olmedo's defense = a decent 2B.

    But who is Dr. Frankenstein with Dr. Andrews out of commision?
