    Wayne on Everyday Eddie

    Wayne Krivsky said the Reds expect to have Eddie Guardado pitching for them this season.

    Guardado had Tommy John surgery on Sept. 8, and the typical rehab is a little less than a year. Krvisky said the timetable is usually shorter for a reliever than a starter.

    "Im not into the prediction business, but hell be ready at some point in the year," Krivsky said. "Hopefully when he comes back, hes healthy."

    Guardado appeared in 15 games for the Reds, with eight saves and a 1.29 ERA. He was also a bona fide closer for Cincinnati for the short time he was healthy.

    The club has an option for 2008 that ranges from $3 million to $7 million, depending on how much he pitches this season. Krivsky said it was very much a sign of the team's interest in Guardado being a long-term part of the team.

    Guardado will be in camp in spring training. He probably won't be able to pitch in games in spring training, but he will work out with the team and do his rehabilitation with Reds trainers and help some of the younger pitchers during camp.

    Krivsky also said he continues to have talks with Aaron Harang and his people and hopes to avoid arbitration with the pitcher.

    WK must have a fetish with over-the-hill relief pitching.

    Maybe he's still using his 1996 player guide?

    Eddie pitched well for the Reds last season. If he's healthy, I'm more than happy to have him back.

    And.. his enthusiasm is a plus.

    You absolutely can't fault his desire and enthusiasm.

    but you can fault a bad shoulder which has still never been repaired. Also TJ surgeries generally have a recovery time of 18-24 months for actually getting back to a prior performance level. EG is nothing more than a shout in the dark, the odds are extremely long in his being useful in 2007.

    Every so often Eddie
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    So, why are there 10 posts on a thread about a former MLB-closer who was signed to a non-descript Minor League deal?



    I don't see the point of the argument. He didn't sign a 3 yr MLB deal with an option for a fourth. There's nothing here but a transaction note.

    Because Wayne cannot stop signing relievers.

    That's the best you can come up with?

    John Scherholz likes utility middle infielders. He's a genius. Walt Jocketty likes washed up starting pitching. He's a world champion. Mark Shapiro likes Outfielders. Billy Beane likes statistical anomoilies.

    I like hot dogs with chili and mustard. I eat lots of them.

    Big Deal.
