    Re: Reds sign Mike Stanton

    Is he a pitcher's pitcher?

    Does he come ready to play?

    Does he battle?

    Makes all the routine posts.

    Stanton will be either a success, meaning above average reliever we can trust, or he will be DFA'd like all the other relieving scum we have had last season. He controls his own destiny.

    Wouldn't it be nice if the Reds FO acted as though they controlled their own first?

    When will someone tell Wayne to stop collecting this chaff?
    That chaff is 3rd all time in appearances behind Orosco and Franco. With the Giants last year he was 4-2 with a 3.09 ERA and 8 saves. If by chaff you mean a 39 year old pitcher who still pitches effectively, then yes he is chaff.

    I imagine we'll be clamoring for Ted Davidson's 1968 season's numbers by the end of Stanton's contract.

    my 3 cents

    what i hope is that Stanton was signed for depth and maybe because teams are interested in one of our other middle relievers ( anyone except Coffey and Bray ).

    what i don't want to see is a large collection of warm bodies pitching in the pen ala 2006. depth is good. quality and depth is better.

    also i really hope we carry 6 relievers and 6 bench players ( not 7 relievers and 5 bench players like last year ). if we have 2 starters who pitch a lot of innings and 6 decent/good relievers then i would rather have the 25th man be a position player.

    right now i count 2 set up guys ( Bray & Coffey ) and 4 middle relievers ( Stanton, Cormier, Belisle & Majik ). IF nothing else comes to fruition then i would expect Bray to be the 'closer' at the start of 2007.

    hope they aren't paying much because I wouldn't expect much.

    Maybe WK is trying to corner the old washed up lefty market.

    Mission accomplished. I heard him say last year "Mercker and Hammond down...when is Stanton's contract up?"

    If Stanton does his job, who gives a crap about his age?

    I would love to hear why you consider him washed up.
