    I'll go out on a limb here and say that Mays never sees major league action with the Reds.

    That limb is pretty sturdy I'd say.

    1st Stratton and now Buchanan, can we all agree now that spring training stats don't matter.

    I would have sworn there was something posted saying we had signed this guy during the off-season.

    Oh just went through old threads, that was Darrell May. My bad.

    I think it's a fine signing.

    As long as he never pitches for the Reds.

    Per ESPN
    "Mays was an All-Star with the Minnesota Twins in 2001 but hasn't been the same since he developed elbow problems. He had reconstructive surgery in 2003 and had to sit out the next year."

    This guy had the stuff in '01, but nothing since. I don't think it's a bad move to put a low investment in a guy with signs of talent, even with surgeries. Could be a pay-off in the end, if not oh well it was worth a shot....for nothing. Not to compare but we put a low investment into Brandon Phillips and got a good reward.

    I don't mind the signing. Personally he has got to be able to put up better numbers then say Rick White or Dave Williams

    In other Reds-related news, the Twins are trying to deal Kyle Lohse. BEWARE!

    Having Twins ties like Wayne does.. we may be looking to offer a few warm bodies for him.

    Could he be turned into a relief pitcher? Worth a shot trying it in minors I think and he came cheap :

    Why exactly do we all have a problem with signing a pitcher to a minor league deal?

    I have no problems with this.
