    Get Oritz & Lima so you have someone to cut hair and someone to dye hair.

    I'm dumbfounded
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    He's just forgotten a lot as of late.

    At least it nullifies the argument that there are better arms down in Louisville than the ones in the rotation.

    Re: Reds Sign Joe Mays

    When I first heard a couple days ago that the Reds were interested in Mays I was not happy, mainly because I figured he'd be inserted right into the Major League staff.

    But him signing a Minor League deal changes my whole outlook on this. I love this signing. You stick him in Louisville and see if there is anything at all that can be salvaged out of him. If there is, you've got a pretty good pickup. If there's not, you dump him and pretend the whole thing never happened.

    This is a very low risk, but potentially high reward deal and I like it.

    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.

    I'm not sure the arm is still attached.
