    All you people cutting Rick White are forgetting something very important - Brian Shackelford has options and an even higher ERA. That's who I'd expect to go.

    Estaban Yan? Isn't that the gituar playing guy on TV?
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Perhaps they already had something in the works regarding letting someone go from the bullpen..... hmmmmmmm.

    Sometimes a guy just needs a change of scenery... perhaps that's true of Yan (e.g., Phillips). Also, whomever said Hume may have seen something fixable may also be true.

    Shack gets lefties out. White gets no one out.

    Shack didn't get that lefty out yesterday. I think Shackleford and his 7.71 ERA will be the one heading back to Louisville.

    On the pre-game show on WLW they said Shackleford had no options left...

    A change of leagues does not neccesarily mean he will succeed one bit. See Weber, Ben.

    I like that fact that Krivsky keeps these guys wondering. Things aren't going well so he shakes it up. Nothing major, but it shows he is still fighting for them.

    Reds acquire reliever Esteban Yan
    05/30/2006 6:36 PM ET
    MLB.com

    CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Reds today acquired from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RHP Esteban Yan and cash in exchange for RHP Kyle Edens.
    Yan, 30, has spent parts of 11 seasons with Baltimore, Tampa Bay, Texas, St. Louis, Detroit and Los Angeles of Anaheim. He appeared in 13 games this season for the Angels before he was designated for assignment on Friday.

    Geez, even MLB can't get that crappy name correct. Since when is Los Angeles a part of Anaheim?

    That wouldn't make any sense, as he has been on optional assignment already this year. If he was on optional assignment in April, he must have an optional year left (obviously).

    The guy is 29 years old and may very well be out of optional years.

    Hey, I think everyone's missing Yan's true value here. In ten years of ML service, he's got a career average 2.500 SLG!!!

    Yan is our new clean-up hitter, or I'll eat my hat.
