    Washington signs Claussen..

    to a minor league contract and invites him to spring training. They also signed Jerome Williams, this is one I would have liked the Reds to take a chance on.

    JimBo must still read Redszone. We should cease operations immediately.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    No, we should convince him to take Milton too!!
    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...

    Next JimBo target -- Ray Olmedo.

    I sure "hope" Claussen is really hurt. I hate to see us DFA a guy who is one season removed from a 4.20 ERA in light of some of the reclamation projects and long shots we're taking.

    Re: Washington signs Claussen..

    From what I've read this offseason I do have to believe Claussen is done, for all intents and purposes. I think the article posted here about his faith showed that he's a good guy, but in it he basically noted that being a success in the MLB didn't mean much to him.

    And as Johnny Footstool has noted in the past, he indeed has a Wang Chung fastball. And I don't think rotator cuff surgery will help that any.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    NO WAY I let PANTS take Milton...he is going to have value this year...Mid-season trade for quality young arm and a position player.

    Not to mention, imagine the numbers Milton would be able to put up in RFK...he'd probably be an all-star.

    Totally off topic, but I wanted to thank you for using this term properly. I have read on more than one occasion 'intensive purposes'.

    Good luck to Brandon, great fellow in the few brief encounters I had with him.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Has Bowden had a bigger pitching acquisition this winter? I suppose losing Ramon Ortiz could count as an addition by subtraction, though he may have been their best starter. I'm glad I'm not a Nationals fan.

    Wishful thinking i guess
