    Awesome!!!
    Michalak is gone. Mercker is done. Stanton makes "Scowenweis" redundant signalling to his end as a Red. Guardado likely wont factor in to the 2007 plans.

    Basically Cormier, Bray, and Stanton will be the lefties, with Shack waiting in AAA.

    I'd rather have Shack up than Cormier since he offers different strengths, but as of now, it's not bad to have a little depth as Shack will see his fair share amount of games.

    Michalak's already gone, Schoeneweis is as good as gone, and who knows when or if Eddie and Kent are coming back. Even if they do they're currently not under contract with us.

    Not outstanding, but solid. I will take a solid bullpen for an entire year. If we had had one this year we might be wearing the rings instead of the Cards.
    Let's play two!!!

    Still waiting for the Reds to sign RHP Eric Gagne to be the closer.

    FWIW, lefties are almost always in demand mid-season. Stocking the pen with them isn't necessarily a bad idea to get some leverage in the deadline trade market.
    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.

    Speier going to the Angels, per Gammons. Beliefs are in the $4-5 million realm.
    So what happened to the crap about this being a crazy market? So a no hit/slick glove shortstop is worth as much as a legitimate closer? Good job Wayne.

    One year for one million is a steal in this market.

    Good signing.

    I would have to assume that since Spier signed with the Angels he liked the comfort of knowing that division and likes being a set-up guy. Because unless the Halos have ideas on dealing him they have the AL rolaids relief closer in K-Rod. If he really wanted to close he had plenty of options available to him.

    I would also like to say that adding Stanton gives us the flexibility of dealing Cormier for a useful piece if we need to and then re-sign Schoeneweis.

    Ah, jumping to conclusions is fun, isn't it?

    1. Who knows what the total amount will be?
    2. Who knows if Speier even wanted to come to Cincy?
    3. How does 17 career saves make Speier a legitmate closer?

    Don't mean to go a little OT here, but does Speier going to the Halos make Shields expendable? I would love to go after him. He could be a Joe Nathan in the making with his stuff. I'm not sure what it would take to get him though...

    the problem is, is that WK gathers pieces that nobody else would ever want.

    seriously think about all of his acquisitions during the past year (post arroyo/phillips)

    Not one team would take anybody we've picked up.

    That's just a hyperbole. Just off the top of my head:

    Other teams wanted Schoenweis. Toronto traded him to us when there was a better offer on the table from Boston, but they didn't want to help the Sox out.

    Other teams wanted Cormier (including the Cardinals), but Krivsky was willing to give out an extention (which was a poor decision anyways).

    There was reported interest in Lohse as a reliever.

    And I'm guessing teams have been interested in some of the other pick-ups which we simply haven't heard about.
