    I guess I wouldn't be totally opposed to having him back IF (a VERY big IF) it's one year deal (or one year with a team option) and for a modest amount of money.

    If he wants the moon I'd say adios, thanks for the efforts and enjoy hanging out with Richie A in San Fran.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    There is nothing wrong with wanting to lock all of our relievers up until they can gracefully go off in the sun to collect their social security checks.

    For me it depends on the cost of Weathers and the opportunity cost of who the Reds won't sign if Weathers is brought on board. If there are few realistic options for the Reds, Weathers isn't a bad signing. The guy was one of the few bright spots in the bullpen, notwithstanding the fact that he was overused. At points, he was the one holding the bullpen together, albeit with denture cream borrowed from the lockers of Mercker and Guardado. If the choice is between Weathers or more of Ryan Franklin types, I'll even try not to wince when I hear the contract terms.

    I would rather have the draft picks.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I would like the Draft picks as well. That could be a smart way to spend money by loading up in the Draft to build up the Farm system.

    I'd like to get the draft picks AND spend money to fix the MLB team. Great teams (Cards, Red Sox) do both.

    My thoughts exactly...isn't there already a thread about this someplace else?

    I heard he was about to sign a deal with SF, 2 years 6 Million.

    And if he does this we DO NOT get SF's first round pick. (I think)

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.
