    Reds Sign Joe Mays to minor league contract

    If you need a laugh on this Friday...

    Per Marc
    DETROIT -- I didn't believe they'd do it, but sure enough, the Reds have signed Joe Mays to a minor-league contract.

    Mr. Mays, you may recall, made six starts for the Royals this year, going 0-4 with a 10.27. He was designated for assignment May 8 and released May 16.

    Just heard this on 1360.

    Madness.

    He was assigned to Louisville at least.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Well, at least they didn't hold a press conference to announce it as a "big acquistion" like they did with the signing of a pinch hitter three years ago.
    Can't win with 'em

    Can't win without 'em

    Unbelievable. It is like we go out of our way to collect players no other team would want.

    Low risk... unless you're sitting in the bleachers in Louisville.

    I believe you meant "Low Risk, Low Reward."

    Some Joe Mays stats for you:

    ERAs since 2003: 5.38, 6.30, 5.65
    k/9 since 2003: 3.59, 3.46, 3.40
    OOPS since 2003: .785, .848, .866

    These are frightenly bad numbers. You know how Williams has pitched this year? That's basically Joe Mays the past 3 years.

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    At least he wasn't inserted directly into the big league rotation.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Mays this year had a 10.27 ERA, a 2.20 WHIP and a .389 opponent's AVG. Maybe they picked him up to make Williams' numbers look better.
