    Is Mark Redman next?

    Wayne Krivsky covets ex-Twins like Cookie Monster covets Oreos. Joe Mays, Juan Castro, and now Eddie Guardado have been fitted for Reds unis thusfar. Rumor has it Jack Morris and Bert Blyleven have started stretching and playing long-toss.

    So who is Wayne's next target? I'm betting it's Mark Redman.

    Excuse me..."All-Star" Mark Redman, the lone KC Royal going to Pittsburgh next week.

    Redman is ex-Twin whose exceedingly mediocre career (excluding his one good season in the Florida Pitcher's Paradise resort) has pretty much made him the embodiment of the term "Fourth Starter", but whose left-handedness and one good season keep getting him work. He's currently toiling under a relatively cheap ($2 mil or so remaining) one-year contract for the worst organization on the face of the planet.

    Is he a good pitcher? No. But he's one of those BTWWH (better than what we have) guys who represents a slight upgrade for many teams.

    The guy practically screams "deadline deal," but knowing Wayne K, I think Redman is definitely on the early shopping list. Unfortunately, that ridiculous "All-Star" selection will drive up the price somewhat.

    So who does Wayne give up to get Redman?

    Do the Royals bite for Justin Germano plus a lower-level prospect?

    I've got money on him going after Butch Wynegar. This team needs a 4th catcher, and Wynegar can fill the "uber-vet" role, as he has been retired for about two decades.

    I say the Reds bring Scott (Princess) Leius out of retirement.

    Tim Laudner will be our next backup catcher. His wife's family is from the Cincy area.

    He can kill two birds (ex-Twin, ex-Red) with one stone by acquiring Hector Carrasco.

    I wonder what Rick Reed is up to these days?

    All jokes aside, I wouldn't be surprised to see Mark Redman dealt to the Reds, and actually, at this point, I don't see what it would hurt. Anything is an improvement over Joe freaking Mays.

    Having said that, I doubt a move would be made until after the All-Star break since Redman made the all star team. I'd probably start looking for the acquisition shortly after play begins in the 2nd half. Like next Thursday.

    the problem is anyone with a pulse is better in the BP than what the Reds have, and there are too many choices...

    Re: Is Mark Redman next?

    Over the winter, I was listening to the Pirates' "official" baseball guys on KDKA when Redman's name came up. I have never heard announcers immediately spew such venom about a former member of their team. They called the day that he was traded the most important day it the Pirates' off-season, and went on at length about Redman's ego and how bad of a clubhouse guy he was.

    No idea as to how accurate all this was, but I was more than a little surprised to hear it said so directly.

    If it's true, that might be the thing that prevents Krivsky from acquiring him. Wayne would be very familiar with Redman's personality and might have already slapped a "Milo" on him.

    Who knows if it's even true? he could have simply refused an interview when he was in a bad mood or some such thing. All sorts of things can get you out of sorts when you're in the middle of a 15-loss season with a terrible team.

    Before realizing the Twin connection, I assumed the thread would be about cornering the market on extreme fly-ball pitchers! Heck, we've got Milton, Claussen, and now Guardado closing. It's (almost) enough to make a guy long for the return of Jimmy Anderson.
