    Dustin Hermanson signs with Reds

    Per Marty on the broadcast

    Claims it is minor league deal with a big league camp invite. He will report tomorrow.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Yep, but it is another sign of Krivsky's fetish for old, mostly washed up relievers. I doubt he can recapture his success of 2005.

    I believe it's called dumpster diving, hoping to get lucky.

    Yep. Would agree.

    But this is a Minor League Deal with ST Invite. If he's healthy, great. If not, it's not.

    RL's pumped. A fellow Kent Stater in Cincinnati. I know who's getting free tickets.

    I'd hardly call 34 old. As many have so, low risk, high possible reward. Nothing big.

    It will be a bad move when Coffey gets bounced for him because he has options left.

    He may not be old, but his arm is.

    I really like this move. Low risk, high reward.

    Hermanson was signed to a minor league contract so that won't be necessary.

    How about when WK can't bring himself to leave him off the Opening Day roster?

    You honest-to-God think Todd Coffey would be sent to Louisville to make room for Hermanson??

    Please...
