    Another 30-something 6+ ERA type - wow just what the Reds needed.

    you knew that he'd be a Red at some point in his career. At least we picked him up before he reached age 50

    Eeek. Schoeneweis seems to be either hit or miss this year, with more misses than hits so far. He doesn't strike out a lot of batters. His BB/K rate isn't very impressive, his BAA isn't too great either. Might be useful in 1 or 2 games as a LOOGY, but don't the Reds already have enough of those. I guess maybe the thinking was that with Guardado being day to day for the rest of the season, Bray could be used in the late innings and Schoeneweis might have a use, but isn't that why Shack was called up? I wonder whose roster spot he's taking, and I wonder how many PTBNL's Wayne will give up this year. They're almost as common as DFA's this year.

    Soon the Reds will have an entire lefty bullpen.

    Oh, the joy.

    Maybe sooner of later they will actually acquire someone that can get people out.

    IIRC, the Reds pursued him a couple of years ago and lost out and then signed Mercker.

    BTW, he stats suggest he is purely a LOOGY at this point and one that likely not as good as SHack.

    The Reds may end up with 9 relievers and 3 bench players.

    I'm not big on Schoeneweis, but Michalak may not be long for the bigs, Shackelford is good only for a batter or two, and Bray and Guardado have had too much work, it seems, so maybe Schoenweis can fill in some gaps. Could Eddie be heading for the DL?

    at this point the acquistions seemed to have become activity purely for its own sake.

    SS is at the very best redundancy and at worst a downgrade.

    You'll need a 40 to watch this crew pitch.

    I guess Shackelford will be sent down to make room for him?

    who knows. I guess the Reds just don't have enough old fossils yet. I wonder if he will get a contract extension?
