Well, this headline ought to get the RZ'ers off to a good start this morning...Cormier deal in the works?
BY JOHN FAY | JFAY@ENQUIRER.COM
That Jon Coutlangus : is still on the roster indicates that the club is trying to move veteran left-hander Rheal Cormier.
Cormier makes $2.25 million. The Reds are willing to absorb some of that to facilitate a trade.
Coutlangus : 26, has a 3.52 ERA in 10 games this spring. He hasn't given up a run in nine of 10 outings.
He struck out Chase Utley and Ryan Howard with the bases loaded his last time out.
If the Reds were to decide to option either Belisle or Milton as the 5th starter (with them to return on April 8th), wouldn't the numbers suggest Coutlangus makes it???...I really think if Milton struggles again on Saturday they really have to look at him going down to Louisville and being the 5th starter (nothing more than that at this time is realistic)...thus would begin yet another round of "Coutlangus/Pole" puns from the RZ
