    Maybe he will bring J.J. Putz or Felix Hernandez with him?

    Interesting if the Reds are picking up his full salary.

    Eddie Guardado - the newest deck chair on the S.S. Titanic. Enough of the old guys already.

    That line inspires confidence. Sounds like a guy we should have gotten for Hammond instead of a prospect.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Since this will be Guardado's first stint in the NL, he will have the upper advantage.

    So his first couple of outings he does OK. Then the NL teams start watching tapes. Then it all heads downhill.

    Blech. Why go after guys like this? Makes no sense.

    He's an extreme flyball pitcher who benefitted from pitching in that cavern in Seattle.

    He's toast.

    IIRC, he's in the midst of pitching through a torn labrum. After being diagnosed, he chose the rehab route as opposed to surgery.

    Don't have a link, but I believe Thom Brennaman mentioned it when he came in to pitch for the Mariners against the D'backs.

    He had a sub 3 ERA with 36 saves last year. With our pen, he is worth a shot.

    I hope we aren't paying all that salary though.
