    It's a good move as long as Shackelford is used as a LOOGY.

    I've seen LOOGY before, and I think I know it means to pitch against lefthanders only, but what do the letters stand for?

    I appreciate the fact that this franchise is not afraid to eat the contract of a particularly atrocious player. It's a shame the particularly atrocious player was ever on the team to begin with, but the least you can do is rid yourself of him before he can do any further damage.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    You won't have to eat much. This is Chris Hammond, not Danny Graves and our GM is Wayne Krivsky, not Dan O'Brien.
    You may be able to swing a trade (remember Dave Williams?), or somebody could pluck him off waivers (remember Rick White?).

    Oh sure, I know it's not Junior's contract or anything. But with Womack, White and now Hammond, it's refreshign that Team krivsky is, to some extent, willing to put lack of performance ahead of guaranteed salary considerations.

    Absolutely. And although, I'm sure many would have preferred he pull the trigger earlier, I think all the parties (except Womack...who had a track record) were given an adequate chance to prove their worth or lack thereof.

    Womack, Williams, White and Hammond...

    About time, now to move on to the rest of the "over the hill" gang.
    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!
