    Reds Release Paul Wilson

    FT. MYERS, Fla. -- Reds released Paul Wilson this morning. Paul's one of the good guys in the game and hope he can continue pitching somewhere. Heck, he's gotta be better than some of the stiffs on the Nationals' staff. Still, it's not much of a surprise.
    Paul deserves thanks for all he's given to this organization.

    Good luck, Paul!

    I agree. I will never question the man for his efforts. He gave 100% at all times and for that I am appreciative. I hope he finds success somewhere if that is what he is looking for - to prolong his career. Having said that, I think the writing was on the wall that he would not make this year's team. Best of luck to him in the future and I thank him for his effort, leadership, and hard work.

    Excellent. Sums up how I feel in a nutshell. GL Paul!

    I believe Harang credited Wilson for inspiring him to take his conditioning seriously. Character matters. I hope he finds a way to fulfill his continued desire to compete. Wouldn't mind seeing him back in the organization as a coach someday.

    Interesting - it was rather recently he was considered one of the pitchers who might make the opening day roster. I guess it was not to be.
    I hope he has luck in finding another team to play with, and has some success.

    Just not against the Reds.

    Don't be surprised to see it happen, maybe not the Opening Day starter but in their rotation at least.

    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

    He'd probably be their #3 man. Their rotation is horrible.

    I guess he's taking Womack's roster spot since Womack was released?

    Should have tried to trade Wilson for Kearns, he would make a great fourth outfielder.

    Womack was a non-roster invitee, so no such luck for Paul.

    But seriously, all the luck in the world to Paul. The year he had in 2004 was inspirational. I remember when he and the rest of the young ex-Mets starters graced the cover of Sports Weekly, I ran out to buy it. Even if it ended badly for Paul in Cincinnati, I'm glad he was here. He was the consumate professional, and an awesome teammate. Last year betweem rehab starts in Dayton he would be in the Reds dugout cheering on the team. Great guy.

    I am slightly saddened however, when I read in Fay's blog that he was not offered the option to go to AAA. Why not stick him down there if he is willing and let him rub off on Livingston, Lizard and Bailey? Classy guy. Best of luck Paul!

    ...but seriously, I hope he finds success somewhere.

    I don't dislike the man... just the pitching.

    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...
