    Re: Reds sign Chad Moeller

    I thought Wayne Krivsky seemed a bit evasive when we asked him last week about Ross and Valentin serving as the only catchers following the LaRue trade. Lo and behold, the Reds have signed veteran backstop Chad Moeller, who spent last year in the Brewers organization, to a one-year contract. Not sure what this means in the grand scheme just yet, as Moeller appeared in just 31 big-league games last year, but I'm sure it's all part of the master plan.

    In other news, the team extended the contracts of its entire medical staff -- head trainer Mark Mann, assistant trainer Steve Baumann, strength and conditioning coordinator Matt Krause, physical therapist John Walker and medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek.
    You can never have too many catchers...

    Joy.

    The return of 3 catchers. We need catching depth, but I hope we don't keep 3 on the active roster.

    I would rather draft Chad Mottola. I hear he is going to be awesome.

    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.

    I think Ross is likely a goner. Which is fine. Cash him in.

    Narron/Krivsky are doing their best to establish the Cincinnati Home for Wayward Catchers.

    I'd much rather have Matt LeCroy as a platoon 1B/emergency catcher.

    Acording to the Reds website Miguel Perez is on the active roster so we already have another 3 headed monster.

    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

    If we can get a starting pitcher, I am all for that.

    Leaving the Reds with the dynamic duo of Valentin and Moeller?

    I hate Ross's D. Which leaves you with his offensive production (which I think is likely a mirage). I can live with some weak sticks at catcher, provided the D is good.

    Would Valentin and Moeller be a good defensive duo? I don't know much about Moeller's D.

    They're both average, IMO. But it beats Ross's bailing act. He's got all the ferocity and toughness of a Teddy Ruxpin.

    Minor league or major league deal?

    This guy has the d to match his o. Which isn't a compliment. If he's the Louisville option...I'm ok w/ that.

    I am beginning to believe that as well. If he's part of a package to bring a suitable upgrade to the staff then it is a no brainer.
    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...
