    Rockies release Danny Graves

    Rockies released RHP Danny Graves.

    Graves gave up six earned runs and had a 0/7 K/BB ratio in four innings this spring.

    Could this be the end of the line for our all-time saves leader?
    "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."

    That's a shame.
    But, I would be surprised if no other team picked him up - there seems to be a market for dead-armed relievers. My money is on him going to KC, Tampa Bay or Washington.

    And picking up Danny Graves would leave them in the same situation

    No Ks and 7 walks in four innings? Sounds as if he is in mid-season form.

    This is kind of a shocker...Coors field seemed like it would be a good fit for him....

    They'll probably make a starter out of him.

    Danny Graves was successful in 15 of his last 17 save attempts as a REDS player before he was DFA'd on May 22, 2005. Weathers took over after Graves got DFA'd and was 15 of 19 in 2005.

    In 2006 as a team the REDS had 34 saves and 21 blown saves. Weathers was 12 of 18. Guardardo was 8 of 10. Coffey was 7 of 11.

    In closing... since Graves had 41 saves in 2004 the REDS have needed a real closer. I know, I know... tell ya something you don't know.

    He has closed in the past. That seems to be an important qualification a far as the Reds are concerned.
