    Russ Ortiz

    I saw on Arizona's home page that he maybe avaliable plus his 20 million still owed him. Looks like he is having bad year (0-5 ) 7.64 era What would it take to get him or not interested? The article said that they might RELEASE him.

    It's so bad that Arizona was using him in the bullpen for a stint. If he is released and we can get him for league minimum then I may go after him..

    I'd take him. He's better than a lot of the guys that the Reds have. I wouldn't pay him anything near what he is owed, but I'd pick him up if he was DFA'd.

I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton

    What the heck happened to this guy? He was pretty good from 2001-2003 and then went to Arizona and has gotten worse and worse.

    He left Atlanta. What's Raisor's Fourth Law of Pitching Theorem? He who is a pitcher and leaves Atlanta must have issues?

    When he was signed after the 2004 season it was generally regarded as the worst of that off season, even surpassing the Milton deal.
