    Everett DFA'd

    I read on MLB.com that Carl Everett was DFA'd by the Mariners. Not that I want the Reds to sign him, just throwing it out there for comments.

    It would be nice to have some left handed home run pop off the bench like Everett, but not at the price of Everetts attitude.

    I'd take him for cheap.

    Wouldn't be shocked to see him back in Chicago, though.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    I lost ALL respect for him in the WS last year. I did not particularly care for him before that but he showed his true colors while on the bench during a game in Houston.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    I thought you meant Adam Everett. I would have said chuck Clayton and sign him.

    He's hitting 190 something since May 1 if I heard correctly on XM earlier. Mouth or not, thats why he's gone.

    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

    Garner was chirping from the bench about some calls and the white sox bench got upset. The Camera panned to Guillen. Everett was next to Guillen hanging over the rail, pointing and screaming at Garner. "Shut your Blank Blank Mouth you (Madre)(Finkelstein)...and he carried it on until Garner went up to the top of the steps. It looked as if Everett was coming out to meet him... It was a sad moment really. I believe I still have it on Tivo.

    If the reds were to sign him I think someone should take him to a museum of natural history and have him explain how the fossils he sees never existed.

    Wonder if there is ANY chance at all that the White Sox go after him? They are said to be wanting a left hand bat off the bench...

    Carl Everett? He's older than dirt. Well, I guess that's a given. Dirt is what, 3,000 years old? Right Carl?
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
